    I do have to hand it to the Iranians, they can pull off a decent copycat tank. But question is, will they actually develop it? Like the Zulfigar tank that was supposed to be the main tank of Iran.

    The tank is not at T90 level and you can see it from the fact the RCWS is actually an external contraption, it is added to the outside of the turret. Furthermore the rear bustle is very long, which is, IMO strange since the Iranians don't have push through crammer like AMX56 tu use as external autoloader. The only possibility would be they have obtained LKZ blue prints for a drop-able bustle and crammer, but that is next to zero. Even the Chinese haven't gone that far. However Iranias have had T80 turrets from Ukraine and who knows what else. But this tank looks like a T90MS, it is not a T90MS.

    Why you seem so upset friend? You're acting like just because there are similarities between this tank (not even confirmed to be karrar yet) and T-series, that it must automatically be a copy etc. Even if we look at the tank below hard enough, we could see T series similarities:

    Although there are similarities, people are jumping to conclusions here. Alot of tanks can look quite similar, this tank, if it even is the karrar, it does indeed have T- series influences such as side skirts etc however, there is clearly considerable differences. Look at tank below:



    If you look close enough you could also see similarities between it and T-90 etc, however does that mean it is based on it?

    Lets wait till karrar is officially revealed then we can do a proper analysis on its anatomy.

    Upset? Why should I be upset?

    Iran had enough time to spirit a lot of elements to make a semi-viable tank upgrade from the ealy 90's until the current sanctions. Take the Khorramshar which was T72/T80 mix with a turbine. Yet Iran has to move over the T72S it still produces to this day. However there are three things that we can't assess as of now. FCS, Sensors and Gunnery. This tanks purports to show an elongated turret, does it have a new autoloader, the answer is no, the turret seems to be elongated to make up for the RCWS pedestal that sits behind the T72 turret. So basically this tank looks like something we know, but from the initial pictures, smells like something else, we know as well.

Could I be wrong? of course.

    However, best thing to do is wait till karrar is officially revealed. They will probably show some manufacture phase videos as well, then one would be in a much better position to judge its anatomy.

    Look at the Karrarr's hull. It's a T72 hull, not a T90MS hull, you can see that APU and commo box from the T90MS are not in this tank.

    Here T90 vs T90MS



    Here APU+Commo Box on T90MS



    We can start analysing this tank as soon as images with a better definition appear. But from what I see it looks just a make believe.

    It's not assumptions, the RCWS is not set on the turret itself, but on a contraption over the bustle frame. This means that the autoloader cannot take place there, or that the tank has a very small ammou count. Which I seriously doubt. I already provided yo with enough hints as to what this tank looks like and what probably it is like.

    If you want to believe that this is a brand new tank, then OK so be it. You are entitled to your opinion. Anyway, best luck to the Iranian army.

    I never said this is a brand new tank, I say it is a design which is heavily based on the T-series. I don't see the point of these speculations further. Just assumptions being made. Hopefully Karrar will be revealed soon then better judgement can follow. But I will say this again, it is not officially revealed what the tank in that video is, it probably is karrar but we can't be 100% certain.

    Karrar tank

    Post  Benya on Fri Aug 26, 2016 12:26 pm

    Just to clarify things. Info about this "mysterious Karrar MBT"

    New Iranian-made Karrar MBT Main Battle Tank unveiled by local television footage.

    First footage of the Iranian Television "Telewebion" has unveiled the new Iranian-made Karrar MBT (Main Battle Tank) which is full designed and manufactured in Iran. The layout of the Karrar seems to be similar to the Russian made T-90MS but with some specific features.


    Printscreen of Iranian television footage about the new Karrar MBT (Main Battle Tank)

    The overall layout of the Iranian-made Karrar MBT seems to be similar to that of the Russian-made T-90MS MBT with the driver's compartment at the front, two-man turret in the centre and engine and transmission at the rear. The driver is seated in the centre of the hull.

    According to our first analysis, the front of the turret and each sides of the hull are protected with explosive reactive armour (ERA) while the rear side of the hull and the turret are fitted with wire cage armour.

    The suspension consists on each side of six dual rubber-tired road wheels with the drive sprocket at the rear and idler at the front. The upper part of the suspension is protected by side skirts.

    The turret has a rear extension which can be the automatic loading system of the main gun. The main armament of the Karrar could be a 125 mm smoothbore gun. A remote weapon station is mounted on the top of the turret which can be armed with a 12.7 mm or 14.5mm heavy machine gun.

    Banks of electrically operated smoke grenade dischargers are mounted either side of the turret.

    Well, it might not be a copy, but we need more info to judge whether is it, or whether it isn't

    The sights on that are either Selex Turms-TM or Chinese WS-9 ( but from aperture system it is cearly a Selex Turms which is logical since they have had their hands on TURMS in Syria mounted on Syrian T72's).

    The presentation ceremony was held in Tehran in the presence of the Minister of Defense and Logistics of the Armed Forces of Iran, General Hossein Dehgan, and it was also stated that the batch production begins at the industrial complex of Bani-Hashem near the town of Dorud in the province of Lorestan.

    Karrar tank itself seems to be a modernized version of the T-72. Actually a tank factory near the city of Dorud was built with the help of Russia in the 1990s. For the release of licensed T-72S with the help of components supplied from Russia.

    Iran’s Army Ground Force نيروي زميني ارتش ايران launched a military exercise in central parts of the country on Wednesday to put into operation the latest homegrown weapons.

    The war game, codenamed Beit ul-Muqaddas-29 بيت المقدس بيست و نه, is being held in NasrAbad region منطقه نصرآباد in the central province of Isfahan, with the participation of various units including the infantry, the armor units, the artillery, rapid reaction forces, elite commandos of the 65th Brigade, drone units as well as choppers from the Ground Force Airborne Unit.

    The purpose of the exercise is to bring into operation the latest military equipment and weapons manufactured by the local experts.

    The drill is held on the anniversary of liberation of Khorramshahr آزادسازي خرمشهر, a city in southwestern Iran which had been occupied by Iraq's Baathist army in the early 1980s.

    The energy-rich city was recaptured by the Iranian armed forces on May 24, 1982.

    Well done to all Iranian engineers . The fact that they have gone ahead with tank design means that they already have thought about protecting them from the air . Or effective air force . There is not much you can do with basic tank design . You can not change it . Once you decide on the concept of using a tractor to carry guns ( ww1 ) . I can say about this tank :

    ( 1 ) I like the machine gun on top . Remote control . But smaller calibre 7.62 anti-personnel is better . Barrel life longer . And all vehicles now are armoured . You need tank round to destroy them . Anti helicopter round ( missile ) can be fired by tank main gun also , with much longer range .The machine gun barrel is not water cooled . It needs to be . For continious firing . More rounds to be fed by flexible belt from inside tank . Or external armoured box . Continuous firing to last average length of battle or engagements .

    ( 2 ) Can main barrel be elevated to fire like howitzer ? Is this impossible ? Can howitzer be same calibre as tank round ? Can howitzer fire tank round ? For the sake of small advantage in calibre size . Big advantage in flexibility is gained . Iran has laser guided anti-tank projectiles . Destroy enemy tank from 10-15 km distance ? Even longer range than AG anti-tank missiles . Russia can help with 125 mm sokol projectiles .


    ( 3 ) Can tank round be used to intercept incoming enemy round and then go on to destroy enemy tank ? Kind of active protection combined with anti - tank round ? Maybe a missile can carry more electronics to do this . Launched from tank main gun . Guided by radar on tank . You may not need radar . Just range finder and photocell to register a flash by opposing tank gun . Then tank auto fires in direction of enemy tank . Because ballistic trejectody is predictable . Then two rounds pass close by . And frag can disperse in path of incoming shell . If false signal given by enemy tank . No problem . Gun fires and destroys enemy tank .


    Thanks yavar for posting .
