Iran is receiving its first deliveries of Russian-made S-300 air defense systems well ahead of schedule, and Tehran is in talks with Moscow about the purchase of other weaponry, Russia’s top arms export official said, according to RT report.

Russian deliveries of S-300 anti-aircraft systems to Iran are going as planned, the head of Russia's federal arms exports service, FSVTS, told journalists.
“I would even say that we’re well ahead of schedule,” Fomin was quoted by TASS as saying. “Hopefully, everything will be fine.”
He added that Russia and Iran have additionally discussed the procurement of other military equipment, but did not elaborate on the issue: "The talk is about only authorized items which are not on the UN list [of prohibited offensive weapons systems]."
Iran has had a long-standing interest in purchasing the S-300s, believed to be one of the most reliable and efficient systems of its kind, to boost its air defenses in an uneasy security environment.
Talks to sign the contract stalled in 2010, but resumed in April last year after a landmark nuclear deal between Iran and six leading world powers was reached, leading to the lifting of international sanctions which had been imposed on the Islamic Republic.
Earlier in April, the Iranians demonstrated the newly-arrived S-300 during the annual Iran National Army Day Parade. The weaponry parade also included long-range target acquisition radar, a short-range radar station, a command post and a mobile radio antenna – all carried by lorries.
Iran’s domestically-produced advanced weapons like Ghader, Nasr and Fakour missiles, Kasta surveillance radar, Hag and Rapier missile defense systems, and Iran’s analog of the S-300, the Talaash-3, went on display as well.
Iran bought the latest variants of the system, S-300PMU-2 Favorite, TASS reported during the 2015 Dubai Airshow.
S-300s have been operated by a number of countries, including Algeria, Azerbaijan, Belarus, Cyprus, Kazakhstan and Vietnam. Russia last supplied S-300 systems abroad in 2010, when 15 squadrons were delivered to China.
Production of S-300 systems was then suspended as Almaz-Antey, the main producer of Russian air defenses, launched production of the next-generation of S-400s. Although none of the S-300s have been used in armed conflicts worldwide, it is considered a highly effective surface-to-air system.

Parts of Big Bird radar(see marked piece on first image,can see it on third image),sorry I had to edit few times..I lost it with all these images...luckly with google I find already marked...


Looks like this on same truck

Command post Almaz 55K6E Command Post from S-400/PMU2 and Iranian
photo hosting


Deployed with antenna
From AusAirPower

The 55K6E is employed to control all components in the group of batteries, and can collect and present status information from all components. It can also control the operating modes of the 91N6E Big Bird acquisition and battle management radar, including its IFF/SSR functions. A comprehensive C3 /datalink package is installed, and an Elbrus-90 mikro central processor is used to execute the dataprocessing and system management code. Sharing hardware with the S-300PMU2 54K6E 2 CP, the 55K6E uses 18 inch LCD panels for all crew stations

This is original PMU2 command post 54K6E2,it is standard PMU2 command post and also older than 55K6E, you can see FAVORIT written at side,it is because this image is from max air show when PMU2 is introduced. As you can read above it can share resources and can be used in same time as 55K6E2.
55K6E/E2 is used or intend to be used(not sure is deployed with any older variant than PMU2 since it is newer than most variants) S-300PS/PM/PMU SA-10 Grumble and S-300PMU1/PMU2 SA-20

Command post is most important thing,it is linked between radars and lunchers and control every thing...for example PMU1  83M6E control and command sistem can track up to 100 targets and control up to 6 PMU1 sistems..and this is most likely reason why 55K6E and univerasal e are here insted of PMU2 54K6E2 and 83M6E2,while I didn't find much about 55K6E and there is no much about universal e also,I find that universal E  is  control and command sistem but also has some other abilities, track up to 300 targets at 3.200 km range and 100 km atlitude,it has EW capability,interact between other CP..and much more

Much older S-300 command post 73N6 Baikal/Balkal-1
Supported systems include  S-75/SA-2 Guideline, S-125/SA3 Goa, S-200V/D/SA-5 Gammon, S-300PS/PM/SA-10A/B Grumble, S-300PMU/PMU1/PMU2/SA-20 Gargoyle and PVO-SV S-300V missile batteries

There is Universal 1E also delivered and it is very new sistem...I'm not sure exactly  but it is been offered few years ago for export(not more than 7-8 years).it is part of s-400.On first image is Universal 1E offerd for export...on second Iranian and third is S-400,like you see it is same as one seen in s-400,also on s-400 image you can also see command post same as Iranian one...as I said all we have see till now indicate that Iran got most recent version...with newest subsistems used in s-400 also,in fact parts Iran got are newest and newer than even PMU2 version...

Some other parts
On first image is Communication relaying sistem delivered to Iran,on second you can see two same sistems displayed with S-350 ..I sow at many places this is identified like crane...but it is communication and relaying sistem between the missile launchers, radar and command post
