On the fourth day of the Sacred Defense Week, Iran officially inaugurates the mass production line of two strategic military hardware products.


Defense Minister Ahmad Vahidi unveiled a high mobility multipurpose vehicle named Kaviran and a mortar-launcher known as Razm on Saturday.

With a capacity of 3.4 tons, Kaviran has several unique capabilities such as the ability to cross deep rivers. It can also be used an ambulance, personnel carrier and mobile rocket-launcher.

The domestically-produced Razm mortar-launcher has a range of 16 kilometers. Previous mortar-launchers had a range of 6.2 kilometers.

Vahidi pointed out that both new products were produced in line with the defense ministry's policy of using state-of-the-art military hardware.

"The Razm mortar-launcher can be easily mounted on the Kaviran tactical vehicle," Vahidi added.

Vahidi thanked the country's defense industry experts for their achievements in the field.
