    Iran eyes own tank production, instead of buying Russia's T-90

    Baku, Azerbaijan, Feb. 2
    By Umid Niayesh- Trend:

    Purchase of T-90 tank from Russia is not currently on Iran’s agenda, Brigadier General Ahmad Reza Pourdastan, commander of the Iranian army's ground forces said, Mehr news agency reported Feb. 2.

    “The Russian T-90 tank is one of our favorites,” he said, adding however purchasing this tank was later abandoned considering Iran’s domestic capacities for producing tanks.

    “Iran currently plans to use its domestic capacities to meet its demand for tanks,” the commander said.

    Revolutionary Guards conduct ballistic missile test



    DUBAI (Reuters) - Iran test-fired several ballistic missiles from silos across the country on Tuesday, the official website of the Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps (IRGC) said, defying recent U.S. sanctions on its missile program.

    The test was intended "to show Iran's deterrent power and also the Islamic Republic's ability to confront any threat against the (Islamic) Revolution, the state and the sovereignty of the country", the website said.

    Sepah media service, carried a statement confirming the missile tests, which come less than two weeks after elections in Iran delivered gains to politicians aligned with Hassan Rouhani, the country's moderate president.

    The Revolutionary Guards report to Iran's supreme leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, not Rouhani, and their influence dwarfs that of the army and other armed forces.
