The Russian Defense Minister visited Iran, where he attended an exhibition of the aerospace forces of Iran's Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps. During the visit to Iran, the Russian Defense Minister was shown tactical missile systems, long- and medium-range ballistic missiles, UAVs and Iranian-made air defense systems. The minister held a meeting with the Chief of the General Staff of the Iranian Armed Forces, Mohammad Bagheri. It is unknown what exactly was discussed; perhaps the supply of new weapons. In the video from the exhibition, launchers for kamikaze drones "Shahed 136" were seen. Also in one of the frames, a version of Iranian ground-based cruise missiles of the "Paveh" type flashed. Also in the footage you can see an Iranian homing missile for destroying UAVs and helicopters, called “Rocket 358” in the USA; the original Iranian name of the missile is unknown. These missiles were previously used in Yemen.

Final tests of a simplified version of the Karrar tank, first shown in 2017, have passed in Iran. The tank was created by the Bani Hashem company on the basis of the Russian T-72S; it also uses the technical solutions of the T-90MS tank, which Iran previously wanted to buy, but could not for a number of reasons, as well as some design solutions of the American Abrams tanks. The Karrar tank has a laser range finder and an electro-optical fire control system. Despite the apparent similarity with Russian tanks, it has a different design of commander's panoramas and remote-controlled machine gun installations. Another tower and explosive reactive armor units. The Karrar tank can also be equipped with laser and radar irradiation warning sensors. The tank is equipped with a 125 mm smoothbore gun capable of firing anti-tank missiles. The tank can be equipped with a remote-controlled combat module with a 7.62 mm machine gun. The tank uses a carousel-type automatic loader. Tank weight 51 tons, crew 3 people, estimated engine power 1000 hp.

Iran published a video of the launch of the Shahed-171 UAV. And drone production in Iran. The Shahed-171 reconnaissance UAV was first shown in 2014. Presumably the body of the Shahed-171 drone is made of fiberglass, using stealth technology based on the American RQ-170 Sentinel UAV. The body of the Shahed-171 drone uses little radio-reflective materials; its surface, like that of the American B-2 Spirit stealth bomber, does not have rectangular protrusions. The Shahed-171 UAV is the first Iranian drone with a turbojet engine. The Shahed 171 drone has a take-off weight of up to 3070 kg and a maximum UAV flight range of up to 4400 km, at an altitude of up to 10900 meters. The drone's flight speed is up to 460 km/h. The drones are armed with Qaem adjustable bombs.

Iran has released footage of the launch and impact of the Fath hypersonic missile. The Iranian two-stage solid-propellant medium-range hypersonic ballistic missile "Fath" was developed by the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps and was first shown in 2023. The missile is capable of delivering a warhead weighing up to 450 kg to a range of up to 1,400 kilometers. The "Fath" high-precision missile, due to its second-stage solid fuel engine, is capable of maneuvering in the atmosphere and beyond at speeds of up to 18,000 km/h to overcome the air defense position areas of a potential enemy.

The new Iranian destroyer Deylaman has officially joined the Iranian Caspian Fleet. A new destroyer of the modified Moudge project was built to replace the frigate Damavand, which in 2018 hit rocks and broke in half. The Iranian corvette Deylaman, a destroyer according to Iran's classification, is now the most advanced ship of the Jamaran class series of ships, the ship's displacement is 1,500 tons. The destroyer's hull is built using low radar signature technology. The Deylaman destroyer is equipped with a modern all-round radar with an Eagle Eye phased array antenna, capable of detecting targets at a range of up to 200 kilometers. The ship was built according to a modified design and its exact characteristics are still unknown. The destroyer is equipped with a 76 mm Fajr-27 gun and Qadir cruise missiles with a range of 200 km. In the future, the ship will be equipped with a Nawab short-range air defense system and a Sayyad air defense system. The destroyer's helipad has an increased area. The Deylaman destroyer has four engines with four separate rows of shafts and propellers, which is necessary for greater mobility and maneuverability in the Caspian Sea. The ship can reach a maximum speed of 26 knots.

Iranian UAV tracking footage of a US Navy carrier strike group entering the waters of the Persian Gulf through the Strait of Hormuz has been published. The model of the Iranian drone has not been reported. The carrier group is led by the US aircraft carrier Dwight D. Eisenhower (CVN-69), the destroyer USS Gravelli (DDG 107) and the destroyer USS Stethem (DDG 63), the cruiser USS San Jacinto (CG-56) and the French frigate FS Languedoc (D-653) . The group was accompanied by MH-60R “Seahawk” and MH-60S “Knighthawk” helicopters. Pentagon spokesman Patrick Ryder said the drone ignored multiple warnings, an action the US military considers unsafe and unprofessional.

Iran showed footage of the launch and flights of Karrar reconnaissance and strike UAVs. The Karrar drone was developed in 2009 and has since been modernized several times. The Karrar UAV belongs to the class of reconnaissance and strike drones with a turbojet engine. The Karrar drone was allegedly developed based on the American unmanned target Beechcraft MQM-107 Streaker. The drone has a variety of weapons, from Mark 82 missiles and bombs, to six-barreled 7.62 caliber machine guns. The drone has also developed Majid air-to-air missiles with a range of eight kilometers and Nasr-1 and Kowsar anti-ship missiles. In addition, the UAV can also be used as a kamikaze drone, and radar reconnaissance equipment can also be installed on it. The drone can fly at speeds of up to 900 km/h over a range of up to 1000 km, at a flight altitude of up to 9000 meters.

Was keenly reading of Iran and its use of CNG cars ;

https://www.ft.com/content/ad19885c-58bd-11e2-99e6-00144feab49a

Was also reading that the longest range CNG cars were German based:

1. SEAT León TGI:
• Total Range: Approximately 440-500 kilometers on CNG.
• Mileage: Around 28-32 km/kg.
• Manufacturer: SEAT.

2. Škoda Octavia G-TEC:
• Total Range: Approximately 480-520 kilometers on CNG.
• Mileage: Around 29-32 km/kg.
• Manufacturer: Škoda Auto.

3. Audi A3 Sportback g-tron:
• Total Range: Approximately 400-420 kilometers on CNG.
• Mileage: Around 28-30 km/kg.
• Manufacturer: Audi.

4. Volkswagen Golf TGI:
• Total Range: Approximately 400-420 kilometers on CNG.
• Mileage: Around 26-28 km/kg.
• Manufacturer: Volkswagen.

Surprised not to be seeing and reading much on Iran - Bharat development of long(er) and longest range CNG cars . Why do that right ?

"Iran's price hikes could be a result of relaxed sanctions on Venezuelan oil. As those shipments now sail towards the US and India, the amount of oil available for Beijing has dwindled, pumping up prices and reducing China's power to negotiate over price."

The launch of a Dezful ballistic missile from the Shahid Mahdavi mother ship is shown in Iran. The Iranian Dezful solid-fuel ballistic missile is a continuation of the Zolfaghar project and is superior to these missiles due to the use of new technologies. The flight range of Dezful missiles is about 1000 kilometers. The multi-purpose combat ship "Shahid Mahdavi" of Iran was created on the basis of the civilian container ship Sarvin. The Shahid Mahdavi ship has a displacement of more than 2,100 tons, a length of 240 meters and a width of 27 meters. "Shahid Mahdavi" is equipped with a three-dimensional phased array radar, anti-ship, anti-aircraft and cruise missiles. The ship houses electronic warfare systems, helicopters, UAVs and sea boats.

Iran unveiled the first fully indigenous Arman missile defense system. This complex has already been shown before and even took part in exercises. The Arman anti-missile system was a further development of the Khordad-15 air defense system. The Arman air defense system combines both a launcher and a radar station; previously, a separate truck was used for the radar. By combining missiles with radar on one platform, we increased the mobility and speed of deployment of the complex; it is ready for work in three minutes. The Arman air defense system is equipped with three missiles and a radar with an active phased array; there can be an option without it. The Arman anti-missile system is capable of detecting targets at a distance of up to 180 km and hitting them at a distance of up to 120 km, simultaneously firing at 6 of them.

Does Iran have its own semiconductor manufacturing industry to design these radars and missiles? If not, who provides them these chips?
