Iran to Use Suicide Drones
According to a Tuesday report from the Islamic Republic News Agency (IRNA), Lieutenant Commander of the Iranian Army Brigadier General Abdolrahim Moussavi on the sidelines of a summit held this morning at the Air Force hotel said in response to a question from IRNA’s special defense correspondent…that the army has different types of UAVs including those which are suicide drones, and that an example of the activities of the army’s UAVs could be seen in the joint military exercises held in southeastern parts of country in December. And he said the ground forces, air forces, and naval forces all benefit from UAV units, and the use of drones in the Al-Anbia air defense base is also a goal. The Army of the Islamic Republic of Iran announced in January that it had successfully tested suicide combat drones in the recent Mohammad Rasulallah (peace be upon him) war games held in December in the Strait of Hormuz and Gulf of Aden.
