Iran Introduces Third-Generation Anti-Tank Systems: Meet the New ‘Badr’ Light Anti-Tank System

The Iranian Military Industry Introduces Third-Generation Anti-Tank Systems

The Iranian military industry continues to develop its anti-tank systems as Tehran introduced third-generation anti-tank systems.

Recently, on the Day of the military industry, she presented a new light anti-tank system “Badr”, which implements the principle of “throw and forget.” The range of the system is from 200 to 2000 meters.

Yuri Lyamin, a senior fellow at the Russian Center for Analytical Technologies, said: “It seems that the new system will eventually replace a copy of the American Dragon anti-tank system, which the Iranian industry has been producing for many years. He added that Badr is close in design to Israeli Spike-SR ATGM, but surpasses it in range by 500-1000 meters.

It also provides the Iranian armed forces with third-generation anti-tank systems, including the Almas system. There are two versions of it: portable, capable of hitting targets at a distance of 4000 meters, and a long-range second, equipped with a heavy missile capable of hitting targets at a distance of 10 kilometers. The missile is equipped with various warheads, including hollow, thermobaric (heat-pressure), and concrete-piercing. The system is deployed on self-propelled platforms, attack helicopters and aerial drones.
