Россия поставила Сирии три дивизиона С-300ПМ-2. От классической «трехсотки» они отличаются более совершенными многофункциональной радиолокационной станцией, мобильным командным пунктом, а также станцией подсвета и наведения (стрельбовым радаром). По словам источников «Известий» в Минобороны, утверждения о том, что переданные Сирии зенитно-ракетные комплексы будут обслуживаться иранскими расчетами, не имеют под собой оснований — иранцы никогда не работали на С-300ПМ-2.
