Equipment of the Iranian Army

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to navigation Jump to search

From 1925 to the Iranian Revolution in 1979, Iran was mostly equipped with Western hardware. Cases exist where Iran was supplied with equipment even before it was made standard in the countries that developed it (for example the US F-14 Tomcat, or the British Chieftain Tank). Primary suppliers included the United States, Britain, France, the Federal Republic of Germany (West Germany), Italy, Israel, and the Soviet Union.

The Iran–Iraq War, and post revolutionary sanctions at the time had a dramatic effect on Iran's inventory of western equipment. Under the pressures of war all supplies were quickly exhausted and replacements became increasingly difficult to come by. The war eventually forced Iran to turn towards the Pakistan, North Korea, Brazil, and China to meet its short term military requirements. Initial developments in every field of military technology were carried out with the technical support of Russia, China, and North Korea to lay the foundations for future industries.

Iranian reliance on these countries has rapidly decreased over the last decade in most sectors where Iran has gained almost total independence; however, in some sectors such as the Aerospace sector Iran is still greatly reliant on external help. Iran has developed the capacity to reverse engineer existing foreign hardware, adapt it to its own requirements and then manufacture the finished product. Examples of this are the Boragh and the HESA Azarakhsh. In an attempt to make its military industries more sustainable Iran has also sought to export its military products.

This page includes weapons used by both Iranian army and Revolutionary Guards ground forces.

The Toophan 2 is a derivative of BGM-71C TOW missile with a tandem HEAT warhead; possibly incorporates elements of BGM-71E TOW 2A missile.[33]

The Toophan 2B is an upgraded model of the Toophan 2 with heavier warhead.[34][35]

The Toophan 2M is an upgraded model of the Toophan 2B equipped with a tandem-warhead.[36]

Considered the premier Toophan variant[39], the Toophan-5 has laser guidance, tandem-warhead[40] and canards.[41] As a laser-riding missile, it uses a different launcher. Not a copy of any TOW variant.

The Toophan 6 is a variant of the Toophan family which is equipped with an anti-bunker thermobaric warhead[42] and is said to be laser-riding.

The Toophan 7 is a planned variant of the Toophan family, it's equipped warhead is unclear some sources claim it is perhaps fragmentation thermobaric.

Qaem

Anti-aircraft missile Unknown Entered mass production in 2009  Iran
A Qaem Missile.
The Qaem is an Iranian SACLOS beam-riding SHORAD surface-to-air missile. With a range of six kilometers and a maximum altitude of two kilometers, the Qaem is intended for use against UAVs and low flying or stationary helicopters. The Qaem is a development of the Toophan missile, hence why they are identical in appearance.

The missiles can be used by Ghods Mohajer UAVs.[43]

The Qaem anti-aircraft missile uses a laser guidance system.[44] Iran also produces a variant, the Qaem-M, which adds a proximity fuse.[45]
