font size    

A new generation of home-made drones was delivered to Iran's armed forces on Sunday as the Islamic republic hailed its self-sufficiency in producing pilotless aircraft, the Iranian Labor News Agency reported.

In a ceremony for the delivery of the new drones to Iran's Regular Forces and its Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps, Defense Minister Mostafa Mohammad Najjar said Iran had gained independence in producing drones.

Long flight range, high maneuverability, high precision, compatibility with various geographical and climatic conditions and high production standards are among the advantages of the new generation of Iranian drones, Najjar said.

In the near future, Iran's police would also be equipped with the new aircraft, which would enhance the country's capabilities of controlling its borders, he said.
