Speaking to reporters, Vahidi said that the newly unveiled vehicles produced by the Defense Industries Organization were a "great step" in increasing mobility and operational movement of the armed forces.

As regards the features of Howeize armored vehicle, Vahidi said that in addition to different military missions, the vehicle can be used at border posts and in anti-narcotic operations.

On Friday, the Iranian Armed Forces displayed the country's latest home-made military tools, weapons and equipments in large military parades in Tehran.

During the parades, the Iranian armed forces displayed different weapons and military tools and equipment, including different kinds of fighters, choppers, drones, ground-to-ground missiles, air-to-ground missiles, surface-to-surface missiles, tactical and armed vehicles, surface and underwater vessels, electronic and telecommunication equipment, light and mid-light weapons, different kinds of artillery and mortar-launchers, air defense systems and engineering and logistic equipment.
