Continuing the theme of military parades, held almost not so long ago in Armenia, Kyrgyzstan and Kazakhstan, one can not miss the attention parade, last September 23 in Tehran — the capital of the Islamic Republic of Iran. The Soviet Union and its successor — Russian Federation, have davneshnie case in the field of military-technical cooperation with Iran. In this case, these are often very complex in nature, which prevails in the main policy, if the economy. More on military technical cooperation with Iran, I plan to tell later, but for now look at photos and videos from there, stating a fact undisputed backlog of Iran's weapons of his own neighbor: Pakistan and Turkey. With all of this that are in Iraq and Afghanistan, NATO forces are doing a real danger of the territorial integrity and independence of the Islamic Republic, which has a light hand with the Bush yarlychek "Axis of Evil." The aspirations of the United States and its satellites in this case are clear — Iran is rich in natural resources, particularly from the north border of the former Russian republics (Armenia, Azerbaijan and Turkmenistan), and the Caspian Sea and Russia.
First, we are intrigued me Iranian armored vehicles:
T-72Z/Safir-74 — not to be confused with the real Russian T-72. It's just only a T-55 with a 105mm gun and kitted ERA.
Tanks T-72S — kitted out for guided weapons, they are a formidable force, but it can not be considered modern and require a comprehensive modernization.
Please attention on the tracks of the T-72S, trampling on the U.S. flag — this is the so-called "Newcomer" Russian caterpillar, that is installed on the T-90A / C its main feature — the ability to use The rubber polymer linings.
The towing vehicle tank M60
In Iran, armed with preserved so well as such antiquity tank M47
BMP-2 also asks modernization.
BTR-60 has long been imposed on the shift.
Pseudo ZSU: BMP-2 with ZU-23 — Do not put the RF for them to swap the "Tunguska-M1"?
ARV based on T-55
