An Israeli missile expert said on March 31 the missiles shown on Iranian television reported to be capable of evading radar did not the match the description, which he said sounded like Russian Iskander-E missiles.
Iranian state television said the country’s armed forces successfully test fired a domestically-produced missile which can evade radar, a development analysts said could be worrying for Western forces in the Gulf.
"The description does not match the picture," Uzi Rubin, an Israeli missile expert and former director of Israel’s Arrow missile defense program, told Reuters from Tel Aviv. "They could be bluffing."

Russia has always been a secretive and calculative country, and I wouldn't be suprised if they were working behind the scenes with Iran and even North Korea. Russia and China have finiancial interests in Iran and are not in a hurry for the USA to launch a nuclear strike at all...but the question is will russia and/or china jump to Iran's aid if the States drop a nuke?
yikes sounds quite deadly i hear they're selling the S400,cruise missiles, and some nukes to Iran. Besides that's an S300V aka SA 12 not the S300P series.

an online probe suggested that BELARUS would act as a middle man for MOSCOW for exporting its vast advance military weapons systems and technologies
in JANUARY a "high level" political and military delegation from TEHRAN paid a "low key visit to MINSK.
in 05 MINSK negotiated to purchase the latest and most advance version of the S-300SP missile system from the KREMLIN
a contract for an "unspecified number" was singed between the two and the delivery was to take place later that year or in early 06.
BELARUS would then transfer the S-300SP on the behave of the KREMLIN to TEHRAN to help the embattled regime bolster its defenses against "possible" US or ISRAELi strikes against its "vital" nuclear installation.
by doing so this would allow MOSCOW to stay "clean" and would give the KREMLIN the cover of "plausible deniability" once the transfer is made.
