Iran to display UAVs in Army Day parade

A senior Iranian military commander says the country is ready to display indigenous unmanned aerial vehicles (UAV) and other military achievements on the National Army Day.

Commander of Iran’s Khatam al-Anbiya Air Defense Base Brigadier General Farzad Esmaili said on Wednesday “reconnaissance and defense drones” designed and developed by Iranian defense experts would be put on display during a parade on Thursday.

“The UAVs are considered an invisible layer…and aside from their deterrence power they can be used for different purposes,” the general said.

The general said the drones are used for “gathering data from several hundred kilometers away and can transmit them (this data) in real-time.”

In recent years, Iran has made great achievements in its defense sector and attained self-sufficiency in producing essential military equipment and systems.

Tehran has repeatedly assured other nations that its military might poses no threat to other countries, insisting that the Islamic Republic’s defense doctrine is entirely based on deterrence.
