In 2015, the nation of Iran unveiled several new military systems during an open-air exhibition. One of the particular items of note was a compact, single-seat, 4-ton ultra-light tracked vehicle known as the "Fallagh". Its true battlefield role remains unknown though the system may serve well in light infantry support / reconnaissance or as a cargo / weapons hauler. For self-defense, a Remote Weapon Station (RWS) is fitted over the top of the vehicle (with complete 360-degree traversal and unhindered elevation span) and armed through a 12.7mm DShK Heavy Machine Gun (HMG). The driver sits in a framed cockpit at the bow with the powerplant to the rear. The track-and-wheel arrangement sees six small roadwheels affixed to each hull side and a drive sprocket and track idler in their usual locations. Three track-return rollers are present. The track links themselves are of slim width.

Performance specifications include a maximum speed of 130 kph on paved roads. Cross-country performance degrades to 100 kph but the tracked nature of the design does support keeping up with the main mechanized force. Operational range is out to 400 kilometers.

The Fallagh may very well be a project not intended for serial production - a show of Iranian military industry more than anything else.
