Akula_941 posted a topic in Mechanized Warfare12 March fresh new video here just so many of good footage,praise the IRINN.IR so,Karrar MBT aka T-90MS mod 2017 Iranian limited Edition 2.0 Has finally have a bit long TV report,and what is this? when i see this ‘barrel protective case’ thing，the only thing in my mind is "NO,T-72I4! It's him! He is Back!" but after watch the video i pretty sure it's nothing but reference ~ first noticed difference is the ERA kit Karrar 'ERA kit is smaller, have 6 plate on each slide front compare to T-90MS 's 4 larger size Relikt ERA the thickness of the ERA are pretty close so i guess it's just the smaller new Relikt variant RCWS/Commander panoramic sight Station huge muzzle brake but it seems just a 7.62mm RCWS，but looks cool also the sight itself looks a cheaper product compare to T-90MS Digital map,commanding system and Vehicle information Display this is pretty good, Karrar may have the best digital equipment in all Iranian tanks，not even Zulfiqar-3 normal vision channal of the commander sight for the gunner，i noticed something interesting now this is something new, the Karrar have a whole new gunner sight,so obviously the new gunner sighting system is not simply rip-off from russian but the really interesting thing is, it keeps the 1K13,which compare to T-90MS removed 1A45 completely and replaced by Sosna-U and a back up sight why is this? @Lightning think, that Iran hasn't prepare or able to create their own laser guide coding equipment，if they want to use 9K120 ATGM system,they need keep the 1K13 for laser coding which i found is a high possibility that could be true karrar‘s gunner displayer compare to T-90MS let's expect more information of this tank in the future
I am not sure if you folks noticed: We got two images of the new gun and it shell. It's a 130mm L51 tank gun. From the looks of it, the new shell is roughly 1200mm high. What concerned me is the size of the shell. It rules out the carousel autoloader in any future western tank with this gun and a unmanned turret, unless you want a tank that makes the T-14 look short. I also wonder if they have the extend the ammunition rack for the old vehicles to make it fit. If this is already posted or something like that, feel free to notify me and delete the post. Mvh Xoon.
