UAVs used for the first time in Tehran Revolutionary Guards Exercise
According to a report by the defense and security correspondent of Defense News, Revolutionary Guards Brigadier General Ahmad Zolghadr, deputy commander of the Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) unit of the Revolutionary Guards, this morning at a press conference for the search and rescue exercises for the Jerusalem and Kowsar Battalions, said that the exercises will test different organizations, and stated that by means of the maneuvers, they can reduce and lessen hazards. He added, in this regard, the Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) unit of the Revolutionary Guards formed overnight new search and rescue units for Greater Tehran.
He added, the scenario is a catastrophic high-magnitude earthquake in Tehran, and that’s why we’re trying to conduct the exercise in an environment close to reality… He added that for the first time, we will use drones to photograph the environment, and use of an air rescue helicopter is also expected….
