TEHRAN (FNA)- Iranian Defense Minister Brigadier General Ahmad Vahidi lauded
Iran's achievements in the field of aviation industries, especially in
production of Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs), and said all Iranian armed
forces are now equipped with advanced home-made drones.

Referring to the mass production of drones in Iran, Vahidi said the country
has made great achievements in that field and now holds different kinds of

defense units as part of its broader plans for strengthening the country's
air defense capability.

Speaking to reporters on the occasion of the National Day of Air Defense
here in Tehran on September 3, Commander of Khatam ol-Anbia Air Defense Base

units with Haazem drones.

The drone can be used as a target for air defense systems and also for
reconnaissance missions.

Haazem can also be equipped with missiles and used for aerial bombardments
as well.
