DM: Iran’s most advanced tank ready for operation

FNA- Iranian Defense Minister Brigadier General Amir Hatami announced that the country’s newly-manufactured state-of-the-art tank named ‘Karrar’ has been mass-produced and is ready for delivery to Armed Forces.

“Karrar is ready to be delivered to the Armed Forces units,” General Hatami said on Tuesday.

Iran in March unveiled the tank and launched its mass-production line in a ceremony attended by former Defense Minister Brigadier General Hossein Dehqan.

“The tank can compete with the most advanced tanks in the world in the three main areas of power, precision and mobility as well as maintenance and durability in the battleground,” General Dehqan said, addressing the ceremony at the time.

Noting that the tank is equipped with electro-optical fire control system, laser rangefinder, ballistic computer and enjoys the capability to fire at stable and mobile targets in day and night, he said, “Karrar has the capability to fire missiles and precisely guide them (towards the target).”

General Dehqan added that the tank can also move through pits and rivers and is capable of moving even under water, and said Karrar is equipped with navigation and telecommunication systems and is resistant to electronic warfare.

He underscored that the tank is also equipped with armored protection resistant to different types of anti-armor weapons.
