Iran unveils new drone in military exercises

Isfahan, May 23, IRNA – Iranian armed forces unveiled a new Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) named Siraf on Monday in the third phase of Beit-ol-Moqaddas-28 military drills underway in central province of Isfahan.

Siraf drone, which is capable of taking images and sending them online to commanding posts, has been designed by students at the college of the Ground Forces artillery training center in Isfahan.

Speaking to reporters on the sidelines of Beit-ol-Moqaddas-28 military drills, Brigadier-General Ahmad-Reza Pourdastan said that Zolfaqar and Tiam tanks as well as Fallaq armored personnel carrier were used in the exercises.

Iran's military hardware has been developed compatible with defense systems so as to be able to evade anti-tank missiles being used against them and to be able to be used in possible wars in the future.

The third phase of Beit-ol-Moqaddas-28 military drills began in Nasrabad region in Isfahan province on Monday.

The first and the second phases of the exercises were carried out in Kashan province's Maranjab Desert on Sunday.
