A number of high-ranking Iranian military officers also attended the exercise which was held in an unnamed air defense base.

Iranian military personnel completely handled the system according to simulation scenarios which replicated detection, identification, tracing, and targeting of the potential aerial threats.

With a range of up to 125 miles, the S-300 is capable of simultaneously tracking and striking multiple targets, the agency added.
