Iran Back Menu
The Russian defense company Rosoboronexport confirmed Tuesday it has completed delivery of Tor-M1 anti-aircraft missile systems to Iran.

Russian arms export monopoly Rosoboronexport confirmed Tuesday it has completed delivery of Tor-M1 anti-aircraft missile systems to Iran under a contract. "The [Tor-M1] systems were delivered in late December of last year," Rosoboronexport Director General Sergei Chemezov said. Russian Defense Minister Sergei Ivanov first announced the completion of the delivery last week. Russia undertook to supply 29 Tor-M1 missile systems to Iran under a $700 million contract signed at the end of 2005. The United States protested the deal, which it feared could bolster the military capabilities of the Islamic Republic, classified by Washington as a "rogue state" and part of "the axis of evil." Russia has insisted that the contract for the delivery of the Tor-M1 missiles to Iran was concluded in line with international law, and that the system is intended for defense purposes only.

The Israel Defence Force (IDF) is set to manufacture and procure the Namer (Tiger) heavy armoured personnel carrier (APC), which is based on the Merkava main battle tank (MBT).

"The fighting in Lebanon demonstrated the centrality of infantry and the need to protect it from RPGs, IEDs [improvised explosive devices] and mines
