Pre-revolution weapons and equipment purchases saw the Iranian Army with much western-style equipment. The standard infantry weapon was the West German G3 battle rifle which was manufactured in Iran’s own factories. The infanty fire power mainly came from the West German MG-3 machine-gun which was the main squad automatic weapon of the Iranian Army. These were supplemented by US and Soviet made anti-tank weapons. The Iranians used Soviet RPG-7 short-ranged anti-tank weapons, first purchased, then copied and manufactured themselves. They also used medium- ranged US M47 Dragon anti-tank guided missile system. For air defence a mechanised group had the Soviet SA-7 Grail man-portable surface-to-air missile system.

Oil War: World War III In The Middle East

Oil War
With Europe ablaze the shadow of war quickly crept across the globe. In the Middle East, Iran and Iraq had been locked in a conflict across their border since 1980, and looked unlikely to stop anytime soon.  Further west, Israel and Syria had come to blows in Lebanon as Israel fought PLO forces operating from inside their northern neighbour. The oil rich region, already rife with conflict and tension, was about to be drawn into World War III as the Soviet Union and US led NATO set about protecting their interests in the black gold that kept the wheels of industry turning.
