In an interview with Tasnim news agency, Irani discussed the Islamic Republic’s recent advancements in drone production.
He stated that the drone employs a sonar system of domestic origin and other equipment that has been domestically developed in order to track and search for submarines.
The commander remarked that the Iranian Navy is now utilizing the new unmanned aerial vehicle.
On Tuesday, to celebrate National Army Day, the Islamic Republic of Iran Army showcased a range of sophisticated equipment, including domestically-produced missiles, tanks, armored vehicles, unmanned aerial vehicles, radar systems, and air defense missile systems, during a military parade.
On Tuesday, President Ebrahim Raeisi attended military parades in Tehran, during which the four divisions of the Iranian Army – the Ground Force, Navy, Air Force, and Air Defense – were showcased.
During the parade, the Iranian Armed Forces displayed their major achievement, the Mohajer-6 drone. This drone is able to carry guided bombs and sophisticated surveillance equipment, and has already been utilized in combat.
At the unveiling, Iran’s first wide-body unmanned combat aerial vehicle, the Kaman 22, was presented, alongside Iranian suicide drones such as Arash, Kian and Karrar, capable of being operated from both ground and offshore launchers.
At the exhibition, the Qader (Capable) medium-range anti-ship cruise missile, the laser-guided air-to-ground Sattar missile, the Fakour-90 (Thoughtful-90) air-to-air missile, the Qaem surface-to-air missile, and the Shafagh precision-guided missile (which has a range of 20 kilometers) were all displayed.
The Army’s air defense division recently presented a series of domestically-made missile systems, such as the Damavand strategic and long-range system, which is capable of taking down aircraft, cruise, and ballistic missiles; the Nasser 40 navigation assistant radar system; the Majid short-range and low-altitude air defense system; the Nawab medium-range surface-to-air missile system; the Mersad mid-range air defense system; the Khordad 15 surface-to-air missile system; and the Talaash (Endeavor) long-range mobile surface-to-air missile system.
In recent years, Iranian military experts and technicians have made significant advances in producing a wide range of locally made weapons, making the armed forces self-reliant in the arms domain.
Iran asserts that its military forces do not constitute a menace to other nations in the region, claiming that the Islamic Republic’s strategy for defense is completely based upon deterrence.
