Iran's Defense Ministry plans to unveil six important defense industry achievements in the presence of the countrys President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad.
The projects pertain to various defensive areas, including missile and electronic technology and aerial and sea defense initiatives, and will be unveiled during a ceremony on the occasion of the national Defense Industry Day on August 21, Fars News Agency reported.
President Ahmadinejad will also visit an exhibition of the latest achievements of the Defense Ministry and its related organizations, including the Iranian Aerospace Organization (IAO), Defense Industry Organization, Iran Electronics Industries, and Armed Forces Geographical Organization.
In recent years, Iran has made great achievements in its defense sector and attained self-sufficiency in producing essential military equipment and systems.
In July, the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) test-fired indigenous missiles during a three-day military drill, codenamed the Great Prophet 7.
The tested missiles included Shahab (Meteor) 1, 2, 3, Khalij Fars (Persian Gulf), Tondar (Lightning), Fateh (Victor), Zelzal (Quake), and Qiam (Uprising).
Iran has repeatedly assured other nations, especially regional neighbors, that its military might poses no threat to other countries, insisting that its defense doctrine is merely based on deterrence.
"The chief aim of all government is to preserve the freedom of the citizen. His control over his person, his property, his movements, his business, his desires should be restrained only so far as the public welfare imperatively demands. The world is in more danger of being governed too much than too little.
It is the teaching of all history that liberty can only be preserved in small areas. Local self-government is, therefore, indispensable to liberty. A centralized and distant bureaucracy is the worst of all tyranny.
Taxation can justly be levied for no purpose other than to provide revenue for the support of the government. To tax one person, class or section to provide revenue for the benefit of another is none the less robbery because done under the form of law and called taxation."
John W. Davis, Democratic Presidential Candidate, 1924. Davis was one of the greatest trial and appellate lawyers in US history. He also served as the US Ambassador to the UK.
during a ceremony in the presence of Iran's President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, included an enhanced version of fourth generation Fateh (Victory) 1D-110 missile, Armita flying laboratory, Bonyan (Foundation) 4 marine engine, Aras tactical vehicle, Vafa (Loyalty) mortar launcher as well as Shahed tapping and positioning system.

I have got to know what this does...looks damn good. Whats the pod behind it for? In the other picture you see it's attached. Give this stuff to Hezbollah immediately. Extra firepower in the rocky Lebanese mediterranean terrain. This together with better anti armor ATGM's would be very good against Israeli infantry. Get some nice field communication,radar,detective equipment etc etc. Armor piercing rounds,kevlar,new rifles.
Lubnan belongs to the Shias. We will purge the infidel western mentality and establish our own rule. Hezbollah shall reign supreme. Tekkbirrr.
You can't even see the back...if you used your eyes correctly you could just notice the entire body of the vehicle is bulky because of the armored design of Iranian military. From the first sight it looks like a light armored vehicle like a Gurkha. You first need an A if you want to go to B and C. Thicken the armor,add certain bodykits,control systems. Iran has improved on their censors as well add a big machine gun to that and there you go. It all has to come together.
Look at the inside of any light armored vehicle out there. This one looks pretty solid. Any modern AIFV/MBT these days have active defense systems though.
Like the rafael system on the Israeli tanks. Devastating experience in Lebanon speeded up the developments. Not battle tested yet and since the infidelzians have numerous times experienced the upset I still have to see how it will stop all anti tank rounds. It's just a great step sure.
If I were Iran I would enhance their ATGM's to give that crunchy azz kicking once more. Know the enemies weaknesses,and build on it. Never change a winning team they say.
2006 made Israel upgrade everything. Their navy(check main forum)their tanks,their armored vehicles and even their soldiers/commando's with Golani brigade in training.
Iran just needs to build on any shape of missile/projectiles and create big bangs. It's silly to take a conventional approach to war with the infidels. These Yahoodi's control the entire world,they think it's a miracle they come up with these advanced technology. Small gay nations with their conventional army and parades can suck a big load. Israeli's want YOU to contront them conventionally,they will laugh in your face. Iran needs to play by their own rules and continue to spread their trollz. Asymmetric warfare is the way to go. They have colleges how they want to destroy Islam and spread gas that will mess with your spiritual side of your brain,making you not religiouse. If their conventional armies aren't trying to get you,or their imperial ways to split countries,they will find ways to destroy religion.

It's a mock cockpit to test domestically produced ejection seats for fighter-jets in real life conditions, the location of the cockpit is to eliminate the risk of the ejecting Seat and testpilot colliding with the aircraft in case of mailfunction, testing ejection seats will be the first mission for this flying laboratory and will be underway in a few days according to the defence ministry
Hardpoints under the fuselage are also built for testing of jet engine prototypes, weapons, external fuel tanks and radar systems
^ To add to what swoop said, I saw the pics posted on another forum as well along with an article. I believe it was said that the cabin thingy on the flying laboratory, is also to be used in the testing and training of some pilots on the use of new, more advanced avionics systems as well.
As for what you asked about Serkan, that thing is a type of mortar.
