Iranian Hoveyzeh SPH. The Hoveyzeh is a Iranian clone to US M109 SPH, which Iran acquired around 440 in the 1970s before the collapse of the Shah. Iran managed to build the Hoveyzeh using decommissioned M109 metal scraps to construct the vehicle but everything else like firing system, and so on are Iranian origin. According to Iranian sources they have 180

Iran’s Army Ground Force on Monday, December 12, 2016, unveiled a number of new military products, including homegrown snipers Taher, G-1 and a drone, during a large-scale military exercise in southeast of the country.

The rifles include Taher, a homegrown sniper with a maximum range of 1,200 meters, and the upgraded and modified versions of G-1 and Dragunov sniper rifles.

The Taher is a bolt action gun which operated manually by the opening and closing of the breech with a small handle, placed on the right-hand side of the weapon. It is chambered for the 7.62x51mm ammunition.

The top of the receiver is fitted with a Picatinny rail which is fitted with an optical sight. There is a bipod in the forearm with independent adjustment for each leg. The Taher is also fitted with an adjustable length stock.

The new Iranian-made Taher sniper has a total weight of 4,4kg and can fire at a maximum range of 1,200 m with an effective range of 800m.

I haven't seen a single indigenous hardware made by Iran so far. All are copy paste.
in Farsi,

we call it "گنده گوزی"

in English, and if i would be polite, it means "Exaggeration"

No one of these "ماسماسک" "Dolls" are not in Service.

Iran needs to update its air force. Its pretty much outdated.
Iran mostly needed to free from "Thieves, Traitors and Pan Arabs"

Pan-Arabism is good, but not for Iran...

do you like your king be a Pan Slavist ? of course, No.

I agree that Iran had under the Shah a modern,strong army,competent officers,they most probably had the strongest army in middle east in that time.
yes it was best Army in middle East ...

in 1352, one "Gendarmerie" Infantry Btn. Stopped Iraqi Army with only 2 Killed and 6 wounded !!!

but after 1979 Uprising, war lasted 8 years ant thousands lost thier lives ...

Report: Senior IRGC Officer Flees Iran With Secret Intel

A senior Iranian military officer affiliated with the country's Revolutionary Guard Corps, or IRGC, has fled the Islamic Republic with a cache of secret documents said to contain information on Tehran's military plans, according to reports.

Ali Nasiri, a former IRGC brigadier general who once headed Iran's counterintelligence operations, is reported to have fled Iran and requested political asylum at a U.S. embassy in an unnamed Gulf country, according to a report carried in Iran Commentary, an online news portal that publishes information about Iran's human rights abuses and illicit activity.

"Sources say a probe launched by IRGC counterintelligence units reveals that Nasiri fled a Persian Gulf country, requesting political asylum at the local U.S. embassy," the report claims. "Reports indicate Nasiri had in possession a large volume of documents recording the travels of senior IRGC commanders, intelligence personnel and operational units to foreign countries, all under the cover of diplomatic missions."

While the Washington Free Beacon could not independently verify the report, it could represent a coup for the U.S. intelligence community, which has long sought information on Iran's military apparatus and plans.

"Nasiri's fleeing from Iran has had an extremely negative impact among the hierarchy under his command," Iran Commentary reported. "On April 19, the IRGC-associated Fars News Agency referred to the fate of Nasiri without any further explanation."

Reports of Nasiri's situation could shine a greater light on the surprise decision over the weekend by Iran's Supreme Leader to shake up the IRGC's leadership by appointing a new lead commander. The change in leadership also came several days after President Donald Trump took the unprecedented step of designating the entire IRGC as a terrorist group, the first time America has designated an entire country's fighting force.

A State Department official declined to comment on Nasiri's situation, citing a policy of not providing information on potential asylum seekers.
Meanwhile, Iran has unleashed a flurry of threats on the heels of the State Department's decision Monday to stop granting waivers permitting a host of countries to continue purchasing Iranian crude oil.

Iranian leaders lashed out at Trump and vowed to continue selling crude oil, a main source of revenue for the ruling regime as it faces a cash crunch due to U.S. sanctions on the nation.

"Our oil sales will never decrease to any less than one million barrels a day," Heshmatollah Falahatpisheh, chairman of the Iranian parliament's national security and foreign policy commission, was quoted as saying in Iran's state-controlled press on Tuesday.

Hi, this was proven to be totally false. General Nasiri has been photographed and interviewed about this (in Iran) since this fake news spread!

On the contrary, as per our sources, He was one of the five IRGC Generals that defected.

4 via two Arabian Gulf countries, and 1 via Pakistan.

Well knowing the Iranian Regime, I dont expect them to be honest, but if you do, best of luck!
