Mobarez (Persian: مبارز; meaning "Warrior") is a domestically upgraded version of the British Chieftain tank by Iran.[1]

Changes

The hull of the tank has been modified at the back and sides. The fuel tank has been replaced by a new, repairable one. Also, additional vibration dampening systems have been added to protect sensitive electronic components. Other modifications include a laser range finder, a more powerful engine and the addition of light amplifying and infra-red systems.

Production

Iran upgrades its Chieftain tanks in Shahid Kolahduz Industrial Complex along with its T-72 tanks.
