Defense Minister Hossein Dehqan praised the state-of-the-art tank dubbed “Karrar”, saying the domestically-manufactured tank is a clear sign of the high capability and creativity of the Defense Ministry’s experts.
Speaking at a ceremony to unveil Karrar on Sunday, Dehqan said upgrading armored equipment is one of the main strategies of his ministry, Tasnim News Agency reported.
“The Karrar advanced tank … with its numerous features and capabilities, can play a major role in implementing the strategy,” he said.
“The tank is one of the most advanced tanks in the world and can fully satisfy the needs of the Iranian Armed Forces.”
He pointed to some advanced features of the Karrar tank, including its electro-optical fire control system, laser rangefinder and its capability to hit stationary and mobile targets.
Karrar is a class of Iranian tanks that enjoys modern technologies. Its earlier version is already in service, together with other locally-made tanks like Zolfaqar.
Iranian military experts and technicians have in recent years made great headways in manufacturing a broad range of indigenous equipment, making the armed forces mostly self-sufficient in the arms sphere.
