Iran has unveiled new types of state-of-the-art tactical armored vehicles, which have been designed and manufactured by experts at the Defense Ministry.

The domestically-manufactured military vehicles, dubbed “Aras-2” were officially delivered to the Iranian Armed Forces during a ceremony on Tuesday in the presence of Defense Minister Brigadier General Amir Hatami and Commander of the Iranian Army’s Ground Forces Brigadier General Kiomars Heidari.

Speaking at the ceremony, the Iranian defense chief said the high-speed Aras-2 tactical vehicles enjoy high mobility in rugged terrains and are capable of carrying heavy weaponry on different battlegrounds.
