US vs Iran
During the war the government expanded the DIO, investing heavily in modernising this and other defence related organisations. Today, DIO has some 35000 employees of which around 12000 are university graduates. DIO designs and manufactures a number of defence related equipments such as machine guns, rocket launchers, explosives, Armoured Personnel Carriers (A.P.C), Fast Patrol Boats (FPB), mines, Nuclear-Biological-Chemical (NBC) protection equipment, and all types of ammunitions, just to name a few. I have included the pictures of some of DIO’s products at the end of this article.
