Iran has manufactured a new tank dubbed ‘Karrar’ which is as deadly as the Russian T-90, Defense Minister Brigadier General Hossein Dehqan said, adding that the country also plans to test a new generation of Emad precision-guided ballistic missile, FNA reports.

“The defense industry designed and built the new battle tank from scratch. If not better, it’s still as deadly as the Russian T-90,” Dehqan said in an interview with the Iran’s TV on Tuesday night.
He said “Karrar” stands among the most modern battle tanks in the world.

His remarks came after Ground Force Commander Brigadier General Ahmad Reza Pourdastan said Iran was no longer interested in buying T-90 battle tanks from Russia, and plans to supply its needs through domestic production.

According to him, Iran has enough capacity and technological know-how to produce new generation battle tanks and advanced military hardware, so it makes no sense to purchase them from elsewhere.

Elsewhere, Dehqan referred to the long-range ballistic Emad missile which was test-fired in October, and said, “The missile is being mass-produced but its precision-striking power will improve and its second version will be unveiled next year.”

He also said that the defense ministry will deliver scores of new vessels to the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) Navy next week.

On October 11, Iran successfully test-fired the country’s new precision-guided long-range ballistic missile that can be controlled until the moment of impact. Emad carries a conventional warhead.

IRGC Lieutenant Commander Brigadier General Hossein Salami announced in December that the IRGC operational units had been supplied with Emad missile.

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.
