“Iran supplies the allied Syrian forces not only small arms or anti-tank weapons, but heavier equipment. In October, Iranian Saphire jeeps with an 106-mm recoilless gun were spotted during an offensive by government forces in the Al-Gab valley. Now the turn has reached the HM20 multiple launch rocket systems, ”the publication reports.

        And the sequence of firing, like Grad.
        Hmm, Mercedes and Iran. In fact, the first “Gelendvagenes” were made for the middle command link, but at first they did not go to the Bundosver. We drove the party to Iran.
        UAZs were also made in the same years. And with almost the same idea ...
        Just made from G-vagen, and what the Patriot looks like.
        Of course I have nothing against our car industry, but so ... I ascertain the fact. True and Patriot stands on 126500 Euro winked

          The Gelenvagenes were created for the army of Iran, and Iran at that time was looking towards the USSR.
          Then the Islamic revolution in Iran, a change of power and Mercedes hovered with this Gelenvagen.
          Development money was spent and the first batch was made.
          They offered the Bundeswehr, somehow sold it. And then the sales went uphill.

          If I remember correctly, the Gelendvagen was developed by order of the administration of the Shah of Iran, a contract was signed to produce a batch of less than 1000 cars, but they didn’t take off the shah, then Iran did not pay, then the sanctions against the Ayatollah regime, the Bundeswehr refused because of excessive comfort, and grandmas need to be beaten off, and put up for sale. Suddenly, demand fell and it was decided to put it on the conveyor; it was produced not only at the Mercedes plant itself, but also in Austria at the Steyr-Daimler-Pooh plant, under the brand name Steyer-Puch-G.

            So Geliki is still only going to Steier Pooh. By order from Russia wink "Partially" (it's like a "slightly pregnant woman") this pepelats removed from mass production.

              Demand has seriously decreased, and there is no mass production. At the time of the launch of Geliks, there were only 2 SUVs on the market with comfort at the level of a passenger car - Gelik and Niva, all the rest did not differ from the military. Competitors saw demand and improved their Land Cruisers, Pajero and other Land Rovers. Over time, the car repeatedly underwent restyling, replacing the lineup, which somewhat rounded off the external angularity and worsened off-road performance. Cars of the first releases with mechanics and a lot of patency locks, in my IMHO, were the best SUVs in the world that can be planted in two cases - either a woodpecker driver, or if you go where it is impossible to drive in principle.

        It is expected that Iraq will request military assistance from Iran (consultations are ongoing), with the aim of introducing troops into the northern territories of Iraq (Turkey was raging there) ... Will the Iraqi leadership decide on an official request (given the curators from Washington)? Another thing - is Iran ready for this?

      Copies of Grad installations with the same artillery unit, but on different chassis, are produced in Poland (WR-40 Langusta), Romania (APR-21, APR-40), China (Tour 81 SPRL, Tour 83 SPRL. And etc.), DPRK (BM-11, MRL. 122 tt M1977 and MRL 122 tt M1985), Iran (HM20, HM23 and NMxx), Pakistan (KRL 122), Egypt (RC-21) and other countries.

        A bit wrong.
        Here they actually copied the BM-21, but rather, with the MLRS delivered to them from the DPRK, if you look closely, the package of forty guides is divided into two twenty pieces, unlike the BM-21 adopted in the USSR, where all forty missiles are in one package.
        These are the 122-mm MLRS with 30 guides North Korea supplied to Iran during the Iran-Iraq war.

        Here's another version of the 122-mm MLM HM-20 on the Mercedes chassis only earlier.

        A variant of the same 122 mm MLRS but on the MAN chassis

        The Chinese general said - early on you started - you just had to wait another 10 years

        But unfortunately, the Syrians and Iran simply can not live up to this deadline - and Russia had to start ahead of schedule.

      Well, after all, the igil didn’t capture entire cities from Iraq from scratch, there are specialists there and it would seem a banal question ... how did the leader Isil Baghdadi spent two years in Guantanomo, leaving the bang bang and put together such an “office” so quickly with established deliveries of weapons from around the world (take the same supplies from Ukraine), organize the sale of oil and artifacts, cash? and if the accounts are in banks .... what kind of forces they created and financed

        About 30 people, offhand, but most, breaking out of the environment or in battle.
        In Syria, the situation is somewhat different, but rather the organization of the service is lame.

      A regular army often brings more benefits. Without anguish, excessive enthusiasm, guys just do their job. I read about the IRGC, it is not very clear to whom, they can be attributed, which analogue is found in history.

          I think they are professionals. Apparently with a bias, more towards "fighting spirit", because, it is not for nothing that their generals die so often. Therefore, ordinary army men, it seems to me, will be more appropriate.

      This is the specificity of the Iranian army, the generals die because they are at the forefront and are direct participants in the hostilities. In fact, their status does not correspond to the rank of general in the RA and is closer to the colonel.
