    From FARS :

    Basiji (The Invisible Force, 10.000.000 of bayonets ready for the martyrdom)











    The Basij (Baseej-e Mostaz'afin or "The Mobilized Oppressed"), is a volunteer based Iranian National Guard force founded by order of the Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini on November 1979. There is a local Basij organization in nearly every city in Iran. They serve as an auxiliary paramilitary force engaged in activities such as law enforcement, emergency management, social service provider and religious ceremonial organization. The Basij are subordinate to, and obey the orders of, the Iranian Revolutionary Guards. Foremost, they consitute the homeguard for Iran against foreign invasion, and number in the millions. Pictured above are student volunteers in training.

    From MEHR :

    MANPADs





    From Fars :







    The Iranian Army operates SA-7 Strela 2M and SA-14 Strela 3 man-portable air-defense systems (MANPADS). In addition, Iran manufactures its own indigenously developed Misagh-1 and 2. The Misagh-1 is an all-aspect passive infrared homing system. It is a variant of the Chinese QW-1 Vanguard missile system. The Misagh-2 (bottom two photos) is an advanced version of the Mithaq-1 air-defense system. It features a fire and forget infrared seeker, has an effective range of 5000 meters, a maximum altitude of 3500 meters and a maximum velocity of Mach 2.

    The Unites States has yet to display one of these Iranian units from the Iraqi battlefield. In the event of open hostilities between the US and Iran, use of Iranian supplied MANPADS in Iraq is likely.

    Iran used to mark their military vehicles with a small green, white and red roundel, but at some point they stopped doing so. Does anyone know when, and why this change was made?
    In any case, thank you, KuroiRyu, for posting these interesting pics of a seldom-seen army. I believe many of us here, especially modelers, are very interested in Iranian vehicles and aircraft and would love to see anything you've got.

    I think that roundel was a tradition of the Imperial Army. If you check old magazines back of the 1970's you will find photos of Iranian armors with the small green, white and red roundel. They used that symbol in the Iraqi-Iran war and also until the 90's, like also the Russian Army used Soviet roundels and badges until some years ago. I consider the Iranian army similar to the Russian Army, the P.L.A. and the Indian Army too, their army is a total "mess",I mean they have nothing of standard regarding uniforms, vehicles camouflages...

    Safir Jeep



    The Safir is a locally manufactured 1.4 ton tactical jeep, and can be configured for a number of different weapon systems, including the 106 recoilless rifle and TOW missile launcher. It can also be configured for commander and ambulance roles.

    Here's another question: I know some Iraqi Mi-24 Hind helicopter gunships were flown to Iran by pilots fleeing Coalition air forces. The Iranians seized these helicopters as reparations for damage done during the Iran-Iraq War. But what have the Iranians done with these Hinds? Have they been put into Iranian service, like the Su-25s and other captured Iraqi planes? I've never seen any photos of Hinds in Iranian markings. Has anyone else?
    The Hind is a fine gunship. If the IRIAF isn't interested in them, you would think the Pasdaran would be. It would be a shame, to just leave them sitting in a hanger somewhere. It's not like spare parts would be hard to come by.
