TEHRAN (FNA)- Iran plans to unveil a new home-made Unmanned Aerial Vehicle
(UAV) with vertical takeoff and landing capability.

This Iranian drone enjoys ultra-advanced technology and has been
manufactured for the first time in the world, an Iranian expert in the
research team in charge of building the drone, Abbas Jam, told MNA on
Saturday.

He added that the drone would be tested on Saturday and would be unveiled
during the 10-Day Dawn celebrations, which will begin on January 31, marking
the 34th anniversary of the victory of the Islamic Revolution in Iran.

He noted that the hushed drone does not require runways at all and can take
off and land vertically.

Jam added that NASA has confirmed the manufacturing of this unmanned aerial
vehicle and its information.

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

This year, Iran equipped its air defense units with Haazem (Determination)
drones.

Commander of Khatam ol-Anbia Air Defense Base Brigadier General Farzad
Esmayeeli said that Haazem drones are multi-purpose and multi-range vehicles
with air-defense, reconnaissance and aerial bombardment capabilities.

Esmayeeli stressed that Iran's defense industries enjoy a high capability in
designing and producing Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs), and stated that
Haazem is a drone designed and manufactured by Iranian air defense experts
in three short, mid and long range models and for air defense missions.

He said that the drone can be used as a target for air defense systems and
also for reconnaissance missions.

Esmayeeli said the UAV can also be equipped with missiles and used for
aerial bombardments as well.
