Iran unveils ultra-heavy tank carrier, optimized tank

TEHRAN (FNA)- Iran on Monday unveiled an ultra-heavy tank transporter named ‘Pouria’ and ‘Felaq’ optimized tank.

The two new army achievements were unveiled during Beit ul-Muqaddas 28 wargames underway in the Central province of Isfahan.

“Pouria ultra-heavy tank carrier and Felaq tanks were unveiled during Beit ul-Moqaddas drills,” General Massoud Reza Zawarei, the head of the Iranian Ground Force’s Research and Self-Sufficiency Jihad, told reporters in Isfahan today.

He said that Felaq is equipped with automatic and stabilized Dushka weapon which is controlled by the crew inside.

Iran’s Ground Force started massive missile drills codenamed ‘Heidar Karrar 3’ in the Central parts of the country on Sunday as a part of Beit ul-Moqaddas wargames series.

Different infantry, mechanized and air force units are participating in the exercises.

The Iranian Armed Forces have recently test-fired different types of newly-developed missiles and torpedoes and tested a large number of home-made weapons, tools and equipment, including submarines, military ships, artillery, choppers, aircrafts, UAVs and air defense and electronic systems, during massive military drills.

Defense analysts and military observers say that Iran’s wargames and its advancements in weapons production have proved as a deterrent factor.
