A pending S-300 contract between Russia and Iran stipulates the delivery of a more modern air defense missile system, Antey-2500, which means specialists will need to learn how to operate it, a source with knowledge of the situation told Interfax-AVN on Aug.26.

"A group of Iranian military specialists visited Russia after the first contract for the delivery of S-300PMU systems was signed; they were trained and authorized to operate the system. Now they will have to be retrained because Antey-2500 differs from S-300PMU a lot," the source said.

He said that would take time and money. "Iran would like to procure Antey-2500 systems and put them into service as soon as possible," the source said.

There are many opponents of the delivery of Russia's Antey-2500 air defense missile systems both in the West and in the Arab world, he said.
