    Why should our enemies be "grateful" about our defense capabilities?

    The positive thing about the Safir jeep was and is that even its engine is truly Iranian made, a copy of a Nissan engine. Iran did much effort in the 90's and 2000's to fully copy that engine.

    Aras-1 had great advances over the Safir but needed a stronger Chinese made engine.
    Hence there is some hope that the team behind coping the Nissan engine started to copy the Chinese engine (and gearbox) of the Aras-1 and was able to improve it to 30% more power (better inlet aircooling/turbocharger).
    However, this is unfortunately unlikely as the industry behind the Nissan motor, needs something commercial like a Jeep, SUV or Pickup to justify adding or replacing the Nissan engine.
    Hence without high numbers of a commercial product the meanwhile old Safir Nissan engine copy remains in production and the Aras-2 uses a imported Chinese engine. A diesel engine would have problems to sell on petrol-intense Iranian consumer infrastructure/market anyway.
    So I hope they have at least tweaked the Chinese engine on their own to 30% more power.
