A Note about the Armoured Vehicles from China to Iran

iran75From Persian2English’s Blog:

(the information about the armoured vehicles in this text has been confirmed by multiple sources):

Finally, with the arrival of the first shipment of armoured vehicles, China has officially joined in to repress the Iranian people, most likely to prevent the downfall of the “Supreme Leadership” and its own illegitimate interests in the region. The vehicles are built by military complex of Dalian DES-516B. Here is the description of the manufacturer:
Dalian Eagle-Sky Co.

The armoured anti-riot vehicles have a capacity of 10,000 liters to shoot cold and hot water, and three 100 liter tanks to shoot burning chemical liquids. The water is mixed with paint or tear gas that cannot be washed away. Each vehicle has two guns for shooting liquid up to a distance of 70 meters- it is controlled from inside the cabin. The price tag for each unit is 650,000 dollars. Also, a lot of extra burning liquid, paint, and tear gas was purchased.

It took four months for the delivery of the armoured vehicles, and since the Iranian regime was in a hurry, they had them delivered from China’s army organization- this is rare! China’s government was in as much of a hurry to get these to Iran.

This post has been translated into Chinese and is currently spreading through Chinese Tweetosphere.

Also from Chinese Twitterer @bleutee:

“The Chinese government gave the Iranian government armoured vehicles with high-pressure water hoses; Chinese netizens gave Iranian netizens circumvention software. This tells us that real friends are not necessarily in the same country, region or culture, but must share the same ideals. #CN4Iran””

“中国政府送伊朗政府高压水枪战车,中国网民送伊朗网民翻墙软件,说明真正的朋友,不必然是要同一个国家、地域、文化,但必然是要有相同理想的人。 #CN4Iran”
