BEIRUT, LEBANON (11:35 P.M.) – Iran is preparing to unveil their new armored military vehicle that was manufactured inside the Islamic Republica, Minister of Defense Brigadier General Amir Hatami said on Sunday.

According to the Tansim News Agency, Hatami said that the Iranian military had signed contracts with Iranian carmakers to manufacture the critical auto parts whose production has been hampered after the withdrawal of foreign contractors from Iran.

In November 2018, the Defense Ministry unveiled a homegrown armored military vehicle, dubbed Toofan (hurricane).

The armored, mine resistant and ambush protected vehicle has been designed to carry out logistical and combat missions in the theater.

Toofan has been delivered to the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) Ground Force.

The four-wheel drive truck is protected against land mines and improvised explosive devices (IEDs) with explosion power of several kilograms of TNT equivalent.
The high mobility multipurpose truck is also resistant to steel-core bullets and can move in difficult terrain, drive through 1.5 meters of water and climb barriers as high as 50 centimeters.
