Tehran (ISNA) – Iran has unveiled its first home-made highly advanced tank called “Karrar” on Sunday during a ceremony attended by defense minister Hossein Dehghan.

“Karrar tank is one of the most advanced tanks in the world, 100 percent Iranian-made, and even superior to the Russian-made T-90MS in certain aspects. This tank can play an important role in the implementation of the main strategies of defense ministry,” Dehghan said.

“Karrar is equipped with electro-optical fire control system, laser rangefinder, ballistic computer, and ability to fire at fixed and mobile targets during daytime and at night. It is capable of moving through pits, rivers, and underwater and enjoys a navigation system that can be displayed for the tank driver,” he added.

“The Karrar tank is also capable of firing highly-precise laser-guided missiles, and can be operated by the gunner and commander from two parallel sites,” Iranian defense minister emphasized.
