81- “Zulfiqar1 main battle tank”

Zulfiqar1 tank is Iran’s first step in design and construction of tank. It is armed with a 125mm smoothbore gun which is loaded automatically. The tank gun can fire 4 to 6 bullets per minute and is capable of firing all sorts of explosive, guided anti-armor munitions.
There are 4 smoke grenade launchers each side of its gun turret to camouflage the tank on the battlefield and prevent a laser lock on the tank which helps keep it protected in combat with anti-tank missiles.
Other Zulfiqar weapons are a MG3 machine gun and two 12.7 mm machine guns called DShK.
The low height of this tank can be one of its strength points in the battlefield. This increases the visual camouflage and decreases the possibility of being targeted.
