Iran: announced the Karrar, “the Russian T-90 tank as powerful as”
"Iran has developed a new tank, the Karrar, deadly as the Russian T-90”. This was announced by the Minister of defence, Brigadier General Hossein Dehqan. “Maybe no more than T-90 Russian, but deadly as the latter. The Karrar is undoubtedly one of the most modern tanks in the world”. The displays of Dehqan (politically correct towards the Russian ally) come a few hours after the decision not to proceed with the purchase of tanks T-90.
