The launchers and the missiles themselves, however, were not shown.

The Russian S-300 long range surface-to-air missile systems recently procured by Iran were displayed in public for the first time alongside 35 other military equipment units belonging to the Iranian army's Khatam al-Anbia Air Defense Base, the Mehr news agency said.  

​The first batch of the S-300 surface-to-air missiles capable of downing jets was delivered to Iran on April 11, according to Russian Deputy Prime Minister Dmitry Rogozin.

In April 2015, Russia resumed talks on S-300 deliveries following a framework agreement on a landmark pact that aimed to ensure the peaceful nature of Tehran's nuclear program.
