Iran Launched 'Cyber Defense' Before US / Russia and North Korea asked us for Cyber Defense Training



"Even before the US, we invented cyber defense, while Americans were looking for cyber security, we developed cyber defense," he said.

In the second picture, the troops in the back look like they are carrying AK-103s or Iranian copies of the AK-103.

Very interesting tank, I want to know more
Its a T-72B upgrade package consisting of a new kontact-5 like explosive reactive armour package and a remote weapon station similar to what we saw mounted on the Karrar tank but missing the optics. This tank has more comprehensive armour protection than the Russian T-72B-3/4s.

Yes I know these are Masaf but in the other picture of the formation i was referring to, the first two rows are carrying Masaf rifles but the rows behind them have Kalashnikov's with black furniture that looked like Ak-103s but their flash suppressors are not visible in the picture so they could also be Iranian KL-7 rifles. Even the picture of the Soldier loading the Magazine shows 7.62x39mm rounds, not 5.56x45mm as used by the Masaf. On another note, I don't know why both the Artesh and Sepah are producing/fielding 20 round magazines with their 5.56mm rifles. That is a real disadvantage when you have 10 rounds less available to you per Mag than your adversary!

yes they were Ak-103s i saw that too i just tag you because i saw you were interested in Masaf, well Masaf is built by DOD so they have 20 and 30 round magazines, as why they all have 20 round magazines it's because Army and IRGC order 20 round magazines so DOD built them and handed them over as for why just 20 round, i do not know.

This is why the Army is a total embarrassment and it has nothing to do with lack of funding. In the second picture we see a soldier from the 65 Air born special brigade(NOHED), the crème de la crème of the IR Army. Not only does he have his port eject cover open to let in all kinds of dirt and debris, he is even missing the cocking handle on his Massaf rifle. Unbelievable!!!

Heres an interesting new iranian small arms development.
One of the new weapons on display is either based on or a conversion of the old pahlavi era h&k G3,that has had its roller delayed blowback system replaced with a short stroke gas piston system.
