Iran’s Defense Ministry unveiled on Tuesday new types of advanced armored and tactical vehicles fully designed and manufactured by domestic military experts.

During a ceremony attended by Iranian Defense Minister Brigadier General Amir Hatami, the domestically made Aras-2 Tactical Vehicle and Ra’d [Thunder] Armored Personnel Carrier, were unveiled.

Speaking at the ceremony, Brigadier General Hatami hailed the features of the Aras-2 Tactical Vehicle and said with its high mobility in rugged terrains, heavy military gears and weapons installed on it, its high power and torque as well as its power-to-weight ratio, which has increased compared to its predecessor, the vehicle has made remarkable improvements.

He further underscored that the vehicle was designed and manufactured to meet current needs of the country’s Armed Forces and a large number of Aras-2 will be delivered to the forces.

Iranian military experts and technicians have in recent years made great headways in manufacturing a broad range of indigenous equipment, making the armed forces self-sufficient in the arms sphere.
