    Could lead to some 'interesting' target identification problems if the two ever met, not that anyone is relishing the prospect of course.

    not quite. we could still identify our vehicles through flashing strobes (if installed) or any form of beacon.

    Ok, I would think though during the day at speed with dust/combat conditions it would be more difficult. Do the IFF beacons wk during the day?

    Edit: As so gunners still use the Thermal sights etc which pick them up during the day? Plus a commander using visual from his hatch won't have that luxury

    The tank is armed with a 125mm smoothbore gun, derived from the T-72, and is fitted with a fume extractor which may be fed from an automatic loader. The suspension is modeled from the Patton M-48/M-60s that were sold to Iran by the U.S. The Zulfiqar has a distinctive box-shaped turret. The Zulfiqar is a 40 tonne vehicle with a 1,000 hp diesel engine and a 125 mm smooth bore gun. For the Zulfiqar/T-72 fleet, the Ammunition Group of the Iranian Defense Industries Organization mass produces a standard High Explosive 23 kilogram tank shell firing a 3 kg warhead out the muzzle at 850 meters per second. The Zulfiqar-1 uses the Slovenian EFCS-3 Fire-Control system, the same kind used on the Safir-74, providing 'fire-on-the-move' technology.

    The Zulfiqar-3 is believed to have recently entered serial production.

    Where is the firing system periscope (not to mention commander and driver ones)? Looks weird in general.

    This is an old photo, so we must assume it is essentially a sub-systems testbed.

    APCs

    Boragh








    From not official sources (bad quality) :







    The Boragh is a standard Iranian APC that is based on the Chinese Type 86, wich is based itself on the Soviet BMP-1.
