    Back in March Iran stated they would be producing the Karrer tank then the next thing you know their ordering T-90 lol so do they plan on having a mix? Or plan to copy the T-90 and incorporate T-90 into the Karrer? I know on paper they Karrer is similar to T -90 but is this just a pretext for when they copy T-90? Surely if their tank was that good they wouldn't buy T-90.
    But on another note there conversion of their Btr60 to BTR Heidar 5 & 6 minelayer I actually like it and good use for them. Iran needs to get rid of all the USA made stuff including most of the upgraded stuff Iran would be better buying production rights for most things they need and the rest can be homegrown stuff.

    Iran generally suffers from same issue as China were most of their technology is knockoffs that were later upgraded. North Korea shares same issue. While Russia does an evolutionary thing while developing new technologies and reverse engineering those they didn't produce before (thermals). Russian tanks as example hold fantastic technology like T-90 and newer. Something Iran can learn from. In the end as well, they may have been able to produce a couple examples of the karrar tank but lets be realistic - do they have the capability to start serial production of them? Do they have modern composite material technology? What about ballistic computers?

    Now I think regarding the tech part - Iran does produce, I believe, a SPARC based processor of some kind so they could develop a ballistic computer (assuming they also create the sensors too) and also, I believe the thermals that are available could be modified civilians thermal cameras from China, which would work fine after some modification. But the composite armor tech and engine tech, they may have some difficulty. But not like they can't produce them. Just maybe not en mass.

    At the factory for repair of armored vehicles of the ground forces of the Iranian army

    Interesting photo-report from the modernized "Center for Production, Modernization and Optimization of Armored Vehicles Shahid Zahran" of Iran's Defense Industry Organization. This enterprise was built by the Soviet side during the Shah's regime in 1973-1976 in accordance with the Soviet-Iranian intergovernmental agreement for the implementation of capital and medium repairs of artillery and armored vehicles and vehicles supplied from the USSR, and remains to this day the main armored and repair base of the ground forces Iran.

    In the photo report, in particular, one can see the overhaul and modernization of the Chieftain tanks with their new fire control system for Iranian development, as well as the repair of BMP-1 and BMP-2, while the BMP-2 is equipped with an Iranian anti-tank missile system "Dehlavia" (the Iranian copy of ATGM "Kornet-E").

    Commander of the Army of the Iranian Army Brig. Gen. Heideri visited the recently modernized Shahid Zahran Center for Production, Upgrade and Optimization of Armored Vehicles of the Organization of the Iranian Defense Industry. According to reports, 82 units of modernized and repaired equipment were transferred to the land units of the Iranian army.

    The new military gear, dubbed “Azarakhsh (lightning)”, was unveiled during a ceremony in Tehran on Wednesday attended by IRGC Commander Major General Mohammad Ali Jafari and IRGC Ground Force Brigadier General Mohammad Pakpour.
    The 127-millimeter caliber rocket weighs around 70 kilograms and can be installed on helicopter pylons.
    The missile has a range of 10 kilometers (approximately 6.2 miles) and can lock on to its target, track it and automatically detect it.
    The air-to-surface and surface-to-surface missile is also equipped with thermographic detectors with a maximum speed of 550 meters per second.

    I can see that sanctions hit Iranian industry. I hope that now with changing game of the west there will be more opportunities for Iran to sell oil/gas and get industry to new level.
    I think that neither Russia nor China will stick to any industry/military deals after 2020.

    Perhaps T-90AM or MiG-35 will be produced in Iran ? some new helos could be as well.

    Unlikly they go for small fighters. They would rather take su-30Iran version for their big country.

    Concerning sanctions, it'not like before. Now even EU is not with US on Iranian case and want to open iranian market. China and russia too. If iran calm down about the "destroy israel" thing and don't fall in the US trap of restarting some nuclear hidden activities they could stop the sanctions pretty fast.

    Iranian armored vehicle Toufan type MRAP went into production

    Iran began production of the armored vehicle with increased mine protection, the prototype of which was first presented at IPAS 2016. As I wrote then, the car looks a lot like MRAP Streit Typhoon 4x4, and the Persian name Tuffan itself means “storm”, although Iran generally likes to call it military equipment ..

    As I wrote then, it seems that the Iranians also took the KAMAZ chassis as a base, especially in the characteristics from the exhibition in 2016, they speak directly about the use of the KAMAZ V8 diesel engine with 360 hp turbocharging. Since the trucks are not subject to gun sanctions, the Iranians here can take their components without any problems to create such light armored vehicles.

    At the same time, it was stated that the machine has a protection level of 3 according to the STANAG 4569 standard, a speed of up to 100 km / h, a crew of two people, a car can carry troops of 10 people, etc.

    The first batch of vehicles went ground troops of the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps. They appear to be produced by the Shahid Kolah Dooz Industrial Complex, the organizations of the defense industry of Iran, since they were the ones who were involved in its creation.

    On the first machine, the installed Chinese 12.7-mm machine gun W85 or its Iranian copy is visible.

    I heard US shells can defeat ERA protection.

    There is no ERA that will stop enemy fire on its own... its purpose is to reduce the penetration of the incoming weapon so it fails to penetrate the base armour.

    If it can do this then it increases the protection of the vehicle equivalent to adding enormous amounts of armour plate, but without the weight and high cost of such extra armour... and all the logistic issues with such a mod.
