It probably has a powerful engine, but I don't like the turret. Couldn't see much of it.
On a face off with the M1A2 Abrams, I would still bet my money on the Abrams.
Does 'Sakhte' mean 'force', as in 'shakti'?
Tank is not just the chassis, wheels and the gun it need more to be perfect to defend a country like Iran these days!
This is a FV4201 Chieftain Main BattleTank..
In IRAN these tanks are update as perMobarez Upgrade..
Chieftain was the main battle tank
The FV 4201 Chieftain was the main battle tank of the United Kingdom during the 1960s and 1970s. It was one of the most advanced tanks of its era, and at the time of its introduction in 1966 had the most powerful main gun and heaviest armour of any tank in the world.
[h=1]Mobarez Tank[/h]The chassis of the tank is changed in back and sides. The fuel tank is replaced by a new repairable one. The gear box is changed so the tank can have 360 degrees turret turn. Also additional anti shock systems are added to protect the internal sensitive electronic tools. They also added a laser targeting system to the tank. The engine is replaced by a more powerful one. And also night vision and infra-red systems are added.
No matter the cosmetic upgrades, that's still a Chieftain, excellent for the 70's. Chieftain tank - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
