This was posted on tanknet back in April, I can't believe I missed it. I'm pretty sure this constitutes a grave crime against AFV decency and good taste. And why the glossy green paint?
BTR-60PB + M47M turret = "Aghareb" wheeled tank destroyer.
12 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
During time i watch for news from Syria/Iraq, i saw plenty of crazy, interesting or funny DIY/homemade weapons that IMO deserved separate topic.
Syrian 220 mm MLRS on pick-up chassis.
Truck with AA gun inside
Hell cannons (Syria):
Radicals also made a SPG with those hell cannons using unusual chassis...
