Iranian S-300 Locations

Given the recent tensions with the United States & Iran, many have speculated that a war between the two forces is looming. With the deployment of an aircraft carrier in the region, F-35s to the Middle East along with large numbers of other US assets in the region the United States certainly has the capacity to launch air strikes on targets in Iran.

Irans main defence against any US air strikes would be it’s S-300 missile system purchased from Russia. Iran have spread these throughout the country at various locations of strategic importance. Bellow is the S-300 locations that are able to be identified through the use of satellite photos

1st is the S-300 site at Bushehr International Airport. This imagery is dated from February 2019.

One of the other S-300 locations is again at Shahid Beheshti International just slightly to the other-side, this site by the looks of it is not yet a fully operational S-300 site. Haven’t added the range for this site as it is almost identical to the range of the the site at the other-side of the airport

The next site is south of Tehran & based of what can be seen at the site it can be worked out that this site will likely become an operational S-300 location in the near future

It is worth remembering that these missiles can be moved around if Iran believe they may be better used in other locations depending on the threat that the country faces.
