Despite Tehran’s claims, the design of the tank is very similar to the Russian T-90 tank. The tank is equipped with an electro-optical fire control system, a laser rangefinder and a ballistic computer. It is capable of destroying stable and mobile targets at all hours of the day and night.

The tank has a 125-millimeter cannon capable of firing anti-tank shells using its laser technology. The tank is also equipped with an automatic machine gun. The front of the tank is protected by a reactive armor system.
