Iran unveiled Saturday a locally upgraded missile defense system with a range of 400 km and able to defend cruise and ballistic missiles and drones.

State television showed the Falagh, a vehicle and a mobile radar installation it said was an improved version of the Gamma system.

Falagh can connect to the integrated Air Defense Network of the country and complete the S300 radar coverage. 

"This system has high capabilities and can detect all types of cruise and ballistic missiles and drones," Brigadier General Alireza Sabahifard, commander of the regular army's air defenses, was quoted as saying by semi-official news agency Mehr.

Sabahifard said the Falagh was a locally overhauled version of a system which had been out of operation for a long time, Mehr reported.
