TEHRAN (Tasnim) – Two new advanced drones became available for the Iranian Armed Forces.
During a visit to an exhibition of Iranian aerial industry on Saturday, Defense Minister Brigadier General Mohammad Reza Ashtiani unveiled the two new advanced drones.
Describing the unmanned aerial vehicles as a main pillar of combat and operational capabilities of Iran’s military forces, the general said drones play a leading role in various arenas, from reconnaissance operations to electronic warfare.
“This strategic product (drone) plays a key functional role as a main system in all parts of the ground, aerial and naval battle,” he noted.
The minister unveiled plans to boost Iran’s drone capabilities and diversify the utilities of the UAVs used by the military forces.
Iranian military experts and technicians have in recent years made great headways in manufacturing a broad range of indigenous equipment, making the armed forces self-sufficient in the arms sphere.
