    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.

    New Iranian Aras 2 Army SUV and Raad MRAP Armored Vehicle


    In the presence of the Minister of Defense and Support of the Armed Forces of Iran, a presentation of the new Raad armored vehicle with mine protection took place. Also during the ceremony, the Aras 2 tactical vehicle was handed over to the Iranian armed forces.

    Raad - this is the newest armored vehicle with increased mine protection with a 6x6 wheel arrangement, a poster photo of which appeared last month, let me remind you that another similar armored vehicle - Toufan, which has been producing a 4x4 wheel formula since last year.

    Brigadier General Amir Khatami, speaking at this ceremony, noted that the Raad armored vehicle is capable of withstanding the impact of artillery fragments and a bullet with a radioactive steel core, as well as anti-tank mine explosions. According to him, this machine can very well ensure the safety of command personnel and important personalities when passing suspicious sections of the road where mine traps and roadside mines can be laid.

    The Iranian Defense Minister also noted that the Raad armored vehicle can be used in asymmetric warfare, in street battles, at border outposts and in other operational areas.

    Khatami at the same time, mentioning the tactical vehicle "Aras 2", noted that this car has increased cross-country ability in difficult areas, it can be equipped with different small arms and other weapons, it has greater fuel economy, higher acceleration compared to the previous generation models and the ability to carry a much larger range of weapons.

    Heidar 1 small land-based robot platforms, which are connected by control system to the network with other such robots and UAVs. Weapons can be mounted on them, but judging by the shape of the robot itself and the frames from the tests, these are primarily controlled moving mines. The video below shows how during the test such a robot pulls up and explodes under the tank.

    Labbayk-1 guided missile. It is intended for the modernization of old unguided tactical missiles of the Army’s Army, like the IRGC has been upgrading its Zelzal unguided missiles to guided missiles for years.

    Modernization of BTR-50 and BTR-60 armored personnel carriers and T-72 tanks in Iran


    Original taken from counterpart imp_navigator in the Development of the JIHAD Self-Sufficiency Organization of the Ground Forces of the IRGC

    The organization of the jihad of research and self-sufficiency of the ground forces of the IRGC of Iran has shown its developments, including the modernized BTR-50, BTR-60, T-72, reconnaissance UAV Meraj-1 and much more. Most attention was paid to the option of deep modernization of the BTR-50PK, which in Iran were removed from service many years ago and are in storage, while at least some of the cars are apparently in a very lively state, since in 2016 a certain number of BTR-50 transferred to the Iraqi Militia Forces as part of assistance in the fight against terrorist ISIS.

    Iranian Ground Forces | News and Equipment - Page 5 150

    During the modernization, armor protection was strengthened, and most importantly, a new Iranian uninhabited combat module with a 30mm 2A42 automatic cannon, a 7.62mm machine gun and an ICS with day / night sights with a thermal imager, a laser range finder, etc. . The BTR-50 so modernized was called Makran.

    About the combat module, it is indicated that its variants can be installed on different infantry fighting vehicles and armored personnel carriers during modernization.

    Another option uninhabited combat module

    As for the modernized T-72M, it was first shown last year at the exhibition of achievements of the Iranian military-industrial complex in honor of the 40th anniversary of the revolution. The tank has seriously enhanced protection, installed a remotely controlled turret for a machine gun, upgraded the sighting system, installed a thermal imager for the driver, etc.

    The upgraded BTR-60PB with a 23-mm gun and dynamic protection units. Previously, the Organization of Jihad for the Research and Self-Sufficiency of the Ground Forces of the Iranian Army in the Heydar-7 project also proposed a similar thing. In both cases, the main question is how the thin armor of the armored personnel carrier will survive undermining the charge of dynamic protection.
    Iranian Ground Forces | News and Equipment - Page 5 I10

    The upgraded 122 mm MLRS combat vehicle with the installation of special guides for launching guided missiles in addition to guiding packages for conventional unguided missiles. The name of such an upgraded system is Hedayat 122. A potentially very promising development.
    Iranian Ground Forces | News and Equipment - Page 5 122mm10

    Light reconnaissance UAV Meraj-1. Weight is 35 kg. Able to fly up to 10.5 hours at an altitude of 3650 meters with a payload of up to 5 kg. The range of the radio communication channel with the command post is 150 km. The landing scheme for something like skids under the fuselage, already known for some other Iranian UAVs.
