Iran has put on display new homemade military hardware including a rocket system and a tactical vehicle.

"High mobility on a variety of terrain, rapid deployment and firing and the ability to conduct special operations," are among other features of this system," the minister pointed out, the Mehr news agency reported.  
The official also described the system’s capability to target enemy positions within a radius of 10 kilometers as one of the unique features of the Falaq.
The pieces of military hardware were unveiled during a ceremony at Iran’s Defense Industry Organization on Thursday.
A 8x8 tactical vehicle was also on display which according to the defense minister is capable of carrying various launchers, missiles, radars, rockets and command posts.
“This vehicle is equipped with a protection system used in modern warfare,” Dehqan said.
