Small Caliber Ammo Production Launched Small Caliber Ammo Production Launched

Iran's defense chief on Monday inaugurated a production line for small caliber ammunition. In the launching ceremony, Defense Minister Lieutenant General Hossein Dehqan said it will double the capacity of small caliber ammunition production in the country and pave the way for exports, Tasnim News Agency reported. "The products meet international standards," the minister added, praising domestic experts for helping attain self-sufficiency in making such ammunition. The Defense Ministry said the country is capable of manufacturing state-of-the-art military hardware, describing efforts to develop the defense sector as "strategic assets". Iranian military technicians have in recent years made great headways in manufacturing a broad range of indigenous equipment, from rifles to ballistic missiles. Tehran has always assured other nations that its military might poses no threat to regional countries, saying that the Islamic Republic's defense doctrine is entirely based on deterrence.
