It is impossible for Iran to have this system.

I have no idea and I'm just speculating but could it possible they captured a set or purchased one illegally and possibly reverse engineered it?

I wonder if it could have been part of the Iran-Contra affair, after all Iran still received American equipment such as MIM-23 Hawk launchers back then.

I ask friend from Iran, his father was pilot in AF on Il-76. Hi confirm that Iran never had model 70, only AN/TPS-43.
