Iranian Army Unveils New Defence Achievements

Meantime, an exhibition of knowledge-based companies was held in Tehran on Monday in which a drone named Faraz 220 was unveiled. The drone is the indigenized model of the US Aerosonde UAV with the capability of operating 100km away, carrying 20kg of cargos and flight duration of over 8 hours.

In recent years, Iran has made great achievements in the defense sector and gained self-sufficiency in essential military hardware and defense systems.

The country has repeatedly made it clear that its military might is merely based on the state’s defense doctrine of deterrence and that it poses no threat to other countries.
