A senior general said the domestically-developed advanced “Karrar” tank is to be employed by the Army in the near future.

Speaking to reporters in Tehran on Thursday, Commander of Army’s Ground Force Lieutenant General Heidari said the Karrar is one of the country’s unique products and the contract for employing it has been signed by the Ground Force, Tasnim News Agency reported.

The tank is planned to be used in the missions and war games of the Ground Force soon, the commander added.

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.
