    During the holy defense Iranian troops were equipped by different types of weapons and military vehicles. Simultaneous with Islamic revolution, U.S backed Iranian military was in a critical condition in case of providing spare parts and ammunition, knowing this fact Iranian forces had managed to capture Iraqi weaponry to solve the problem. Majority of weaponry exhibited in the open air area of the museum have been captured by Iranian troops, including batteries, anti air-craft artillery and missiles, fighters, armored vehicles, main battle tanks and surface to surface missiles. Different type and made captured weaponry is a proof of Saddam`s international support.
