Iran Main Battle Tank Karrar(Striker)

 

The Karrar is an all-modern Iranian designed and developed Main Battle Tank (MBT). It is said to be wholly indigenous while relying on the framework of past Soviet-Russian tanks like the T-72 and T-90 (T-90MS). Beyond these vehicles the Karrar has also been inspired by other foreign designs including the American Cold War-era M48 and M60 tanks as well as the British Cold War-era "Chieftain" MBT. The Iranian 51-ton system is set to begin serial production in 2017. The tank was first identified in August of 2016.

The appearance of the Karrar is an Iranian response to a T-90MS tank deal that fell through with Russia.


The primary weapon of the Karrar is a 125mm smoothbore main gun fed by an automatic loader. The automatic loader reduces the operating crew by one and is common to later-generation Soviet-Russian combat tanks (a feature not adopted by Western tank designs). Like the Russian tanks before it, the main gun of the Karrar also supports firing Anti-Tank Guided Missiles (ATGMs) (another quality not typically found in Western tanks).
