    DUBAI (Sputnik) Russia is considering the delivery of ground-based electronic warfare (EW) systems for defense to Iran, the manufacturer said Monday.

    "We are ready to consider a possibility of ground-based EW complexes delivery to Iran if necessary and should the political situation allow," Igor Nasenkov, the first deputy general director of the Concern Radio-Electronic Technologies (KRET), told RIA Novosti at the Dubai Airshow-2015.

    KRET, one of Russia's largest holding companies, was founded in 2009. The company is part of the Rostec state technologies corporation, uniting over 95 radio-electronic industrial companies.

    The manufacturer has developed several EW systems, including the radar complex Moskva-1, onboard defense system President-S for civil and military aircraft, and the Rtut-BM system to alert troops and equipment to incoming artillery fire.
