TEHRAN (Press Shia Agency) – Iranian homegrown military tank Karrar is ready to be in service, Defense Minister Brigadier General Amir Hatami said.

In an interview with Press Shia Agency on Tuesday, the defense minister said Karrar is ready to be delivered to the Iranian armed forces.

Karrar, a class of Iranian tanks with modern technologies, was unveiled in March.

Iran’s former defense minister, Brigadier General Hossein Dehqan, had described Karrar as one of the most advanced tanks in the world that can fully satisfy the needs of the country’s armed forces.

The tank is equipped with an electro-optical fire control system, laser rangefinders, and a ballistic computer.

Iranian military experts and technicians have in recent years made great headways in manufacturing a broad range of indigenous equipment, making the armed forces self-sufficient in the arms sphere.
