Iran’s Army has unveiled the Heidar-41, an indigenously developed 122 mm self-propelled (SP) artillery system.

On Sunday, Iran’s Army unveiled three new achievements in the area of artillery fire, named as Heydar 7, 41, and 44 Projects, in the presence of Brigadier General Kioumars Heydari, the commander of the Iranian Army’s ground forces.

The Heidar-41 features a 122-millimeter howitzer, fitted with an automatic magazine loader, shorter combat readiness process, and remote activation capability.
