Russia’s ‘Patriot’ missiles to Iran

Russia revived a deal Monday to send S-300P advanced surface-to-air-missile (SAM) systems to Iran. The S-300P series is often labeled “Russia’s Patriot,” referring to the U.S. missile system of the same name.

Air Power Australia describes it as rapidly deployable and highly lethal. Read related article.
