Tehran, May 25 – Iran said on Wednesday that it possessed the necessary military equipments to destroy all sorts of armoured vehicles.
The Commander of the Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps (IRGC) Ground Force Brigadier General Mohammad Pakpour said Iran’s armed forces were now equipped with the best anti-armour weapons and ammunition to confront all heavy armoured vehicles and tanks.
The state-run news agency FARS quoted Pakpour as saying: “Today we have access to the munitions needed for confronting all types of armoured vehicles in the region”.
“There is no armoured vehicle that we don’t have (anti-armour) munitions for”, he said.
Earlier this month Iran’s Defence Minister Brigadier General Ahmad Vahidi said Iran’s armed forces had been equipped with highly advanced anti-armour and anti-chopper weapons.
Vahidi stated: “These weapons identify the weak points of the enemy tanks and hit them from above”.
Also on Saturday, Iran started mass-production of anti-armour ammunition in an official ceremony attended by Vahidi.
