Notes:

- If several configurations of a vehicle with one designation are known, they are added as such.

- The part within the apostrophes refers to other designations or an unofficial designation, such as the US DoD M-xxxx designation system (referring to the first year the system was identified).

- To avoid confusion over the names of certain SAM systems, names of the missiles used on these SAM systems are sometimes included in this list. The Taer-2A, 2B and 2C missiles listed have been identified and confirmed to be in use on the specific launcher also listed. The Taer missile family is believed to be interchangeable on all of the launchers in Iranian service. 

- Vehicles captured during the Iran-Iraq war and subsequently only used for a short period of time are not included in this list.

- Civilian trucks towing military trailers are not included in the list. 

- Although listed, none of the weaponry seen on Iran's UAV fleet are believed to be working or operational in any shape.

- TEL = Transporter Erector Launcher

- TELAR = Transporter Erector Launcher and Radar
