    TEHRAN (Tasnim) – Iranian defense minister on Thursday unveiled two new military equipment, including a rocket launcher system and a tactical all-terrain vehicle.

    Brigadier General Hossein Dehqan said the new launcher system is used to fire the Falaq rockets and is a useful weapon for the ground battles.

    Falaq launcher which is capable of opening heavy fire on the targets enjoys high maneuverability. It can also be stationed rapidly and has good mobility for difficult terrains, the minister explained.

    When equipped with the Falaq 1 and 2 rockets, the new launcher system can hit the targets within a range of 10 kilometers, he added.

    Thanks to the high destructive power of the Falaq rocket’s warhead, the proper area that its shrapnel covers and the tactical features of the rocket launcher, Iranian forces will have the power to fight the ground battles proportional to the threats, Dehqan explained.

    He made the comments in a special ceremony to unveil the homegrown products.

    The other new achievement unveiled in the ceremony was a tactical heavy vehicle, dubbed Zafar, which Dehqan said has 4 separate drive axles.

    Zafar has also two steerable axles. It is equipped with anti-modern war systems, has an operational range of 800 kilometers and can carry loads up to 24 tons and pass steep slopes, deep waters and stair-like obstacles.

    The vehicle can carry various types of launchers, missiles, radars, rockets and command posts, the minister added

    In recent years, the Islamic Republic of Iran has made great achievements in its defense sector and has attained self-sufficiency in producing essential military equipment and systems.

    Tehran has repeatedly assured other nations that its military might poses no threat to other countries, saying that the Islamic Republic’s defense doctrine is entirely based on deterrence.

    Take a good look at the partially visible vehicles behind the IRGC colonel. They look like a new design.
