A Raad air defense system with Taer missiles is displayed by Iran's Revolutionary Guard, during a military parade commemorating the start of the Iraq-Iran war 32 years ago, in front of the mausoleum of the late revolutionary leader Ayatollah Khomeini, just outside Tehran, Iran, Friday, Sept. 21, 2012. Iran has displayed a new, all-Iranian-made air defense system that is reportedly an upgrade of an earlier Russian-made mobile model. The semi-official Fars news agency says the Raad, or Thunder, is more advanced than its Russian predecessor and is designed to confront fighter jets, cruise missiles, smart bombs, helicopters and drones. The agency says Raad carries missiles with a range of 50 kilometers (30 miles), capable of hitting targets at 22,000 meters (75,000 feet). (AP Photo/Vahid Salemi)
