New Battle Tank to Go on Display

A senior commander announced that the Islamic Republic is set to unveil a domestically manufactured battle tank in the coming days. The Karrar (Striker) tank will be unveiled in the coming days in a ceremony attended by Defense Minister Hossein Dehqan, Commander of the Iranian Army Lieutenant General Ahmad Reza Pourdastan told reporters on Thursday, according to Press TV. He added that the battle tank will join the army soon. Pourdastan said Iran plans to purchase T-90 tanks from Russia, too. Last April, the army unveiled the Aqareb battle tank, which is equipped with a 90-mm-caliber cannon and can carry four military personnel. It features a state-of-the-art fire control system, an independent suspension system and eight active wheels. Pourdastan also said the border areas are completely secure, stressing that the country faces no issues at border areas, particularly those in the east. The Islamic Republic “is a peace-loving nation in the region and poses no threat to other countries,” added Pourdastan, stressing, however, that the armed forces stand fully ready to counter any enemy threats.
