P.S. L-159 looks like a cool jet in terms of multiplayer balance, good specs too - almost Mach 1 speeds http://www.abload.de/img/arma3_screenshot_1202sp5of.jpg Loved the L-39 in Op Arrowhead.
But yes, even the possibility of the Iranians having their own CTAR-21 lookalike (could be that the Iranian version is TRG-21 while a separate TAR-21 exists out there) is not unheard of... although its use of the same 6.5 mm Grendel magazines is interesting.
Armaverse, doesn't have to make anymore sense than the devs made a design choice.
I also am not a fan of seeing them using the Merkava, especially since they are well versed in its weaknesses after the '06 S. Lebanon War. When it comes to them having an MBT of their own, I'd personally rather see them do what they've reportedly done with the SA-10/S-300 and that's secretly purchase a couple from a nation such as Serbia, which they reportedly did after Russia canceled their order as a result of the weapons embargo. and reverse engineer it. So why couldn't they do something similar with say, the newest reported Russian tank that's under development, The “Armata” Universal Combat Platform
Last i saw Russia still plans to begin deploying them next year and field close to 2500 by 2020
I would even go so far as BIS using "Creative License" to simulate an "Upgrade" of the tank to the 2035 time frame of the games story.
Wikipedia, also known as the most trusted authority to explain disputes between countries. I hear there is a problem between Japan and China lately, if only they checked wikipedia they would have solved it by now.
