Iran Army ready to counter enemy threats

Tehran, Aug 21, Iranian Army on Monday lauded defense industry advances and said that 'Army is ready to counter enemy threats.'

'Iran defense industry has become a manifestation of resistance economy, national self-esteem and self-sufficiency despite threats and sanctions,' Army said in a statement released on the occasion of the National Defense Industry Day.

The defense industry has made an exhibition of modern military equipment that meets the demands of armed forces, the Army statement noted.

Iran has reached self-sufficiency in essential military hardware and defensive systems.

Islamic Republic developed its defense industry during eight years of Iraqi-imposed war against Iran because it was under the US and its western ally's sanctions.

Iran is now manufacturing its own tanks, armored personnel carriers, missiles, radars, boats, submarines, unmanned aerial vehicles, and fighter planes.
