S-300 Defense System: A Strategic Boost in Regional Security Dynamics

Why opt for the S-300?

Iran’s preference for the S-300 over the more advanced S-400 system was dictated by its peculiar defense requirements and previous agreements. According to former military attaché Abbas Ali Mansouri Arani, the strategic fit of the S-300 to Iran’s current security framework is evident in how it fulfills the necessary defense gaps effectively.
