The Iranian Army Ground Force on Wednesday received three new home-made combat drones, namely ‘Mohajer 6’, Fars News Agency (FNA) reported.
“Three Mohaher 6 combat drones joined the drone fleet of the Ground Force and we will witness a new arrangement in the drone operations of this Force,” Commander of Vali-e Asr drone group of the Army Ground Force Brigadier General Shahram Hassannejad said.
He added that Mohajer is capable of destroying targets powerfully and with a high precision power, adding that it can also detect and monitor the regions under the control of the Ground Force.
General Hassanzadeh also said that high range, considerable flight durability up to 24 hours and capability to carry rockets with high-precision power for day and night missions are among other features of the drone.
Iran has made great achievements in developing drones and missiles after the Islamic Revolution.
Commander of the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) Aerospace Force Brigadier General Amir Ali Hajizadeh underlined in November Iran's major advances in designing and manufacturing different state-of-the-art drones.
“We are even ahead of the top world powers in the drones sector and we are way ahead of them,” General Hajizadeh said, addressing a ceremony in the Northern city of Qazvin.
He described Iran as the top regional power in the sector, saying that the country had been able to develop different types of home-made missiles as well.
“The young Iranian people have managed to put the country at the peak of power with their excellent ideas in the radar, missile and drone sectors,” General Hajizadeh said.
