Russia is proposing to license the production of its T-90S gun launcher-armed tanks in Iran if U.N. sanctions on the country are lifted.
The T-90S, built by Russian corporation Uralvagonzavod, is the latest tank in Russia’s T-series. Uralvagonzavod deputy director general Alexey Zharich says his corporation will be able to move forward licensing the production of the tank in the country once restrictions on military-technical cooperation with Iran are removed.
“Cooperation with Iran was suspended in accordance with the presidential decree on measures to implement UN Security Council Resolution 1020 of June 9, 2010,” Zharich told Russian state-owned news outlet TASS.
Iranian Ground Forces Commander Ahmad Reza Pourdastan recently said his country would prefer to establish production of the tank in the country instead of purchasing it.
