Iran inaugurated production line of Mesbah 1 air defense system on Tuesday.

Mesbah 1 air defense system is developed to confront air strikes as well as plane, cruise missile and helicopter's attacks, Defense Minister Brigadier General Ahmad Vahidi told reporters on the sidelines of inauguration ceremony of the air defense system.

The system can annihilate air targets and react immediately to threats, he said adding it needs less crew comparing to similar defense cannons.

It is also able to detect and destroy drones, Vahidi continued, Iranian Defense Ministry seeks improving the country's air defense and it has made plans to develop new air defense systems.
