Iran Siraf drone

Iran unveils new reconnaissance, combat drone

TEHRAN (FNA)- Iran on Monday unveiled a new Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) which can be used for reconnaissance and combat operations.

The drone named ‘Siraf’ has a flying range of 100km and was unveiled during Beit ul-Muqaddas 28 wargames underway in the Central province of Isfahan.

Siraf which is capable of taking images and real-time transfer of them has been built by students at the college of the Ground Force’s artillery training center in Isfahan.

Earlier today, Iran unveiled an ultra-heavy tank transporter named ‘Pouria’ and ‘Felaq’ optimized tank.

“Pouria ultra-heavy tank carrier and Felaq tanks were unveiled during Beit ul-Moqaddas drills,” General Massoud Reza Zawarei, the head of the Iranian Ground Force’s Research and Self-Sufficiency Jihad, told reporters in Isfahan today.

He said that Felaq is equipped with automatic and stabilized Dushka weapon which is controlled by the crew inside.

Iran’s Ground Force started massive missile drills codenamed ‘Heidar Karrar 3’ in the Central parts of the country on Sunday as a part of Beit ul-Moqaddas wargames series.

Different infantry, mechanized and air force units are participating in the exercises.

The Iranian Armed Forces have recently test-fired different types of newly-developed missiles and torpedoes and tested a large number of home-made weapons, tools and equipment, including submarines, military ships, artillery, choppers, aircrafts, UAVs and air defense and electronic systems, during massive military drills.

Defense analysts and military observers say that Iran’s wargames and its advancements in weapons production have proved as a deterrent factor.
