DM: Iran Producing over 38,000 Industrial Parts for Weapons, Military Equipment
TEHRAN (FNA)- Iranian Defense Minister Brigadier General Amir Hatami said that the country's experts in the defense industries are manufacturing more than 38,000 industrial parts for the production of different arms and equipment.

General Hatami made the remarks after inauguration of an exhibition of home-made advanced industrial parts in Tehran on Thursday.

The latest achievements in the fields of aviation, aerospace, marine and helicopter industry, communication and radar, as well as ground combat equipment, were unveiled during the event.

Referring to the cooperation of the private sector and knowledge-based firms with the Ministry of Defense, Hatami noted, “This movement has the capability to meet the needs of various industries and companies.”

“The Ministry of Defense has a high capacity to produce various complex and sensitive parts that are sanctioned by foreign countries,” he added.

He went on to say that the Ministry of Defense will not allow the enemies to stop Iran's production line by imposing economic sanctions.

“The enemies struggle to shut down the Iranian companies by preventing the purchase of necessary parts,” he said.

General Hatami further noted that the Ministry of Defense is at the forefront of producing various industrial parts to foil the effect of sanctions.

Iran on Wednesday unveiled a new 3D and phased-array radar system capable of detecting hundreds of small flying objects simultaneously.

The new radar named Kashef-99 (Discoverer) was unveiled in a ceremony participated by Commander of the Army's Khatam ol-Anbiya Air Defense Base Brigadier General Alireza Sabahi Fard.

Kasef-99 is a 3D, phased-array and mobile radar which has been designed and manufactured at the Army Air Defense’s Center for Research on New Technologies and is capable of detecting up to 300 small-size flying objects from a distance of 12km simultaneously.
