These tanks are outdated even with the upgrades the interior looks very basic.

Iran can continue using these tanks till it finishes up making the Zulfiqar-3 or Zulfiqar-4 or whatever the mass production model is called in the end.

What are you talking about?Iran purchased over 900 Chieftain mk3/3 & mk5s during the early 1970s from the UK and as a matter of fact operated a larger fleet than the Brits. These are the servivers we are seeing in the video. Iran had captured enough tanks from Iraq to establish the first Armoured Divission for the IRGC but these were all Russian and chinese tanks. The iraqis had captured a few hundred Iranian tanks during the first months of the war of which 50 chieftains were upgraded by the british and then passed on from Iraq to Jordan. Some of these tanks were given over to the MKO for training and propaganda purposes. As far as I know the Iraqi Army never operated any Chieftain tanks for iran to be able to "capture" them back never the less "fresh out of the box"!!!

Iran's defense doctrine is asymmetric warfare not classic warfare i.e Kursk style classic tank battle. Specially when a small county is facing a much stronger adversary who's favorite tactic is to destroy the air defense as well as other vital defense assets with "unstoppable" cruise missiles and then bomb the rest of the country for awhile before it's ground forces even get into action.
Regardless of this fact, Iran or any country for that matter, still needs armor in it's army to discourage local threats (such as Taliban incursions against Iranian border towns and the murder of 10 Iranian diplomats and one Iranian reporter after the capture of the Mazari Sharif city in northern Afghanistan in 1998 which resulted in deployment of 70,000 Iranian troops to stop the Taliban advances).

Cheers.

"Chieftain" Very good tank. The British tanks represented the peak of production. The "Challenger" in the "Chieftain" was developed from. Be sure to develop further.

If i were to guess i would say that the chieftain turret is slightly smaller than the turret of Zulfaqir-3.

Mobarez (Persian: مبارز) meaning Warrior is an upgraded version of British Chieftain Tank by Iran.
Changes:
The chasis of the tank is changed in back and sides. The fuel tank is replaced by a new repairable one. The gear box is changed so the tank can have 360 degrees turret turn. Also additional anti shock systems are added to protect the internal sensitive electronic tools. They also added a laser targeting system to the tank. The engine is replaced by a more powerful one. And also night vision and infra-red systems are added.
Production:
Iran upgrades its chieftain tanks in Shahid Kolahduz Industrial Complex along with its T-72 tanks.

"The gear box is changed so the tank can have 360 degrees turret turn."

The gear box allows the tank to have 360 degree pivot turn on its tracks while the tank remains stationary and has nothing to do with the turret.

This video is much more suited here:

I think the chief engineer who introduces the tank is also involved in the design of the Z-3
I refer to a video posted a while ago showing ht same person presenting as one of the Z-3 designers!
