The Defense Ministry on Monday unveiled several state-of-the-art indigenous military products, including an advanced sniper rifle and a new type of Kalashnikov rifle, AK-133. They were displayed in a ceremony in Tehran with Defense Minister Hossein Dehqan in attendance, Tasnim News Agency reported. The weapons, designed and manufactured by Iranian experts, included 12.7-mm Nasr sniper rifle, Kalashnikov AK-133 and portable multi-band software-defined radios dubbed "Vasse-1" and "Nasr-2." The AK-133 with a high degree of precision has been designed and manufactured by the Defense Ministry's experts at the request of the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps and the Nasr sniper rifle has been ordered by the IRGC Ground Force. 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.
