Iran Army Choppers Equipped with Night-Vision Gear: Commander

TEHRAN (Tasnim) – The airborne division of Iran’s Army Ground Force has furnished its fleet of helicopters with night-vision systems and powerful missiles, a ranking commander said.

In remarks at a military ceremony in the northeastern city of Mashhad on Saturday, Commander of the Iranian Army Ground Force’s Airborne Division General Yousef Qorbani said the copters at disposal of his forces have been equipped with night-vision systems and missiles that have successfully hit targets kilometers away.

He also noted that the domestic knowledge-based companies have assisted the Army in manufacturing components of the military equipment and advanced weaponry.

The commander warned the ultra-regional enemies that the Islamic Republic is monitoring all movements with updated equipment and vigorously maintains the country’s deterrent power.

The general went on to say that the Iranian military units have ensured security and stability along the country’s borderlines.

In April 2018, the Ground Force’s Airborne Division launched a program to equip all choppers with night-vision cameras to enhance aircraft capabilities in night missions.

The Iranian Army says it has the most powerful fleet of choppers in the Middle East.
