Iran Announces Mass Delivery Of Combat Drones To MIlitary

Support SouthFront

Iran’s state-run TV channel Press TV reports (source):

Iran’s defense ministry has made mass delivery of new combat and surveillance drones, including a jet-powered multipurpose UAV (unmanned aerial vehicle) to Army’s Air force and Air Defense Force.

The event took place during an official ceremony at the Iran Aviation Industries Organization (IAIO) in Isfahan with the presence of Defense Minister Brigadier General Amir Hatami and other senior military officials, a day after Iran’s Army Day.

Speaking during the ceremony, Hatami said that the multipurpose jet-powered UAV could travel at speeds of 900 kmph and conduct operations at an altitude of 12 kilometers.

He added that the drone can fly for up to 180 minutes and have a range of 1000 kilometers.

Mass delivery of Ababil 3 and Karar drones

During the ceremony, a large contingent of Ababil 3 and Karar drones was also delivered to the Air force.

Speaking about the Ababil-3 drone, Hatami said that the drone is a medium-range surveillance craft capable of conducting airstrikes within a 150 kilometer radius.

He also said that the Karar drone is a strategic combat drone which can deliver payloads comparable to manned aircraft.

He added that the drone has pin-point attack capability and can be used in suicide attacks.

Iran has taken great strides seeking to attain self-sufficiency in producing essential military equipment and defense systems in the face of decades-long US sanctions and arms embargoes on the country.

Earlier this month, Iran announced that it is planning to produce a 6,000 ton destroyer later this year.

According to a statement by Iran’s Navy commander last week, Iran is also considering the development of nuclear-powered submarines.

Traiano Welcome

Imagine if Iran was no longer under almost total economic blockade? I see now why the West is terrified of Neo-Persia …

shylockracy

Western empires are hardwired to cross oceans to attack weaker opponents on the other side of the world, Zioterrorist corporatism, the latest incarnation of Western imperialism, sees itself as strategically global in scope, Iran shouldn’t expect anything less than war to settle the whole issue, it’s the only way.

As long as You are kept in the dark by Your own, You will remain a non devellopment zone apart from unimplyment.

And we do pay for the oil and gas. We even take it up for You because You deny to learn that too. We also found use for it. Before that oil hardly was for lamps.

Arch Bungle

As usual, you prove yourself an illiterate, uneducated fool.

“According to Herodotus, more than four thousand years ago natural asphalt was employed in the construction of the walls and towers of Babylon, great quantities of it were found on the banks of the river Issus, one of the tributaries of the Euphrates[1], and this fact confirmed by Diodorus Siculus.[2] Herodotus mentioned pitch spring on Zacynthus (Ionian islands, Greece).[3] Also, Herodotus described a well for bitumen and oil near Ardericca in Cessia.[4]

In China, petroleum was used more than 2000 years ago. In I Ching, one of the earliest Chinese writings cites the use of oil in its raw state without refining was first discovered, extracted, and used in China in the first century BC. In addition, the Chinese were the first to use petroleum as fuel as early as the fourth century BC.[5][6][7][8]

The earliest known oil wells were drilled in China in AD 347 or earlier. They had depths of up to about 800 feet (240 m) and were drilled using bits attached to bamboo poles.[9][10][11]The oil was burned to evaporate brine and produce salt. By the 10th century, extensive bamboo pipelines connected oil wells with salt springs. The ancient records of China and Japan are said to contain many allusions to the use of natural gas for lighting and heating. Petroleum was known as burning water in Japan in the 7th century.[3] In his book Dream Pool Essays written in 1088, the scientist and statesman Shen Kuo of the Song Dynasty coined the word 石油 (Shíyóu, literally “rock oil”) for petroleum, which remains the term used in contemporary Chinese and Japanese (Sekiyū).”

Arch Bungle

The Iranians, being smart, will wait for war to break out between the USA and China. When the US is at it’s weakest, that’s when they’ll assert themselves. At that point they will no longer need a war with the US.

Jens Holm

I dont. They have one of the lowest GDP in rhe world.

We all could buid weapons like those and many more that Iran ever can, if we found it important.

Many of us also could build nukes as we wanted to.

Thats the differens so many deny to see here.

Oh Yes, we dont see the mullahs in Iran as any safety for themselves as well as us. They probatly will detonate theit first one in Teheran airport too:)

Arch Bungle

They have an apparently low gdp because of artificial restrictions placed on them by the Zionist Imperialist project. Otherwise they would be a significantly productive and influential power for geographical reasons if nothing else.
Talking about GDP when a country is under extreme embargo is a sign of stupidity.

Luke Hemmming

Exactly right!! In all aspects including the reference to stupidity. I have often told people how Iran could have been a much different country today if if wasn’t for the US economic sanctions placed upon since the 80’s and the constant attacks on its credibility that is spoon-fed to the dumbed down public by the Zionist dominated mass media. Everyone is afraid to change their views of Iran because of the threat of the Zionist owned banking and financial cartel that these countries rely on for loans and funding.

occupybacon

“Many of us also could build nukes as we wanted to” No, the rest of us don’t build them cause we are not allowed to, not because we don’t want to.

Ashok Varma

Who is stopping you ? India, Pakistan, Israel and North Korea also developed nuclear weapons without anyone’s permission. Iran should also test a nuclear weapon as it has the capability and is now on the verge of manufacturing nuclear submarines.

occupybacon

Some countries will look different if they are nuked, India, Pakistan, NK, will look the same.

verner

it’s actually the jews in palestine that are terrified and they have bought and paid the lawmakers in washington dc to do their biddings but the world is coming around and will see that the jews in palestinee have no right to occupy palestine and that there is just one solution – the one state palestine – and that the jews are the problem and need to be cleared off the deck before any peace can be had.

shylockracy

Development of military tech is central in securing a nation’s sovereignty againt the global Zioterrorist corporate empire, which seeks to blur borders and identities for the profit of a small cabal of greedy terrorists and all sorts of wars against those resisting. Apparently the US-led trend of encroaching, sanctioning, persecuting, terrorising and sabotaging Iran won’t be easing out anytime soon, so Iran must start considering deploying more of these capabilities in Iraq and Syria to secure regional stability, with luck in alignment with China and Russia.

Icarus Tanović

That’s right. I don’t think that Erdogan will see the light of the day in Syria. It is gonna turn Vietnam to him.

Jens Holm

If so it also will be raining a lot and jews will build and Ark:)

Ashok Varma

Turkey is now the COVID 19 capital of the world and has the highest number of deaths in the region and Erdogan is living in a fantasy world.

Astar Roth

It is, definitely.

verner

all the middle east potentates need to do is to wipe the jews in palestine off the face of earth and there will be peace for the first time in many many years. thus, more drones to syria, hezbollah, to iraq and so on so that these middle eastern countries can get the iron dooooom going to obliterate the palestinian jews. thus iron doooom i coming!!!!

Raptar Driver

As each subsequent generation becomes weaker and stupider This drone thing is the future of warfare. Not many have the balls to actually fight someone face to face anymore, what a sad world we are.

Arch Bungle

That may not be so bad. I’d rather have drones killing drones than people killing people.

Raptar Driver

No don’t you see?
This makes it easy to murder, even the biggest pussy can do it now.

Arch Bungle

Peace is brought about by equilisation of power, not by a disparity. When every man is armed with the power equal to a state, we will have peace on Earth. Either we will choose to live together, or we will choose annhilation. Equality in life or Equality in death.

Raptar Driver

War and murder come from man’s fallen spiritual condition. Only by repairing this this damage can man be at peace.

Arch Bungle

That cannot be done in this era. Man’s spiritual downfall is due to his neural network implementation :-)

Really!?

You are the perfect example for the downfall of man – that’s because you’re the offspring of your mother and uncle

Arch Bungle

So, other than low-iq ad hominems, do you have anything logical or factual to contribute?

Because unless you do do, you’re just another chimpanzee flinging faeces at a tree.

Really!?

Well that would accurately describe your intelligence – you have the brains of yer bark. But at least you also have insight to recognize your limitations. Bravo.

Arch Bungle

So, other than low-iq ad hominems, do you have anything logical or factual to contribute?

Really!?

I consider it a public service pointing out your ignorance, bigotry, stupidity and the warning that procreating with a family member yields genetic mutations and retardation as evidenced by the moronic statements you make.

Arch Bungle

Actually thanks for admitting you really are an ape pissing in the wind and scratvhing his own ass.

Now fuckoff hasbara joo.

Really!?

Well that comment was completely unrelated to anything (unlike your mother and father/grandfather). Now if you want to come make this JOOOOOOOOO fuck off tell me where and when. I’ve been asking you for days and everyone can see you’re a coward

Raptar Driver

We Are all equal in death, the great equalizer.

Really!?

We’d be happy if a drone took you out. A person doing the same doesn’t change that equation

Arch Bungle

Who is ‘we’? Do you have multiple personality disorder? Are you a collective?

Really!?

I know, you’re too stupid to figure it out. The stupid is strong with this one

Really!?

People with intelligence, rational people. People who don’t like wannabe tough guy Jew haters who hide behind keyboards. That’s why I wrote drone. Bc you’re a coward who hides

Arch Bungle

You seem triggered. Did you have a traumatic childhood?

Really!?

1. You’re the expert on being triggered, you must be a snowflake Millenial 2. You can’t understand my arguments, again proving the limitations of your intellect and 3. I’m in NYC – any time you want to come and give me that mug of stfu, fee free to let me know. I’ll be waiting little boy.

Arch Bungle

Oh look! The hasbara troll can count!

You have no arguments to counter.

Your entire discourse consists of wall to wall logical fallacies.

Btw. Hi Jake321. We’ve been missing your brand of stupidity on this site. Ready to get banned again?

Really!?

Calling me a hasbara is a compliment. The way I call you a retard. BTW, I was out all day today & you were nowhere to be found. Still hiding?

Free man

Instead of feeding their civilians and fighting against the Corona, they showcase phoney technological achievements. Like the Corona radar they introduced last week.

Arch Bungle

You mean like the Jewish squatters ‘Israel’?

Free man

Supporters of the mullahs regime seem to be obsessed with Israel, the US and the United Kingdom.

Arch Bungle

With good reason. Those three colonialist, mass murdering hegemons are a danger to humankind’s continued existence. They represent aggressor regimes. Iran represents a young and rising nation that deserves a place in the sun. Those three mass murdering regimes represent the powerful who crush the weak. Iran represents a fragile rising nation that has the courage to oppose multiple powerful aggressors despite the odds.
This Is Admirable.

Really!?

The stupid is strong with this one

Arch Bungle

Come on, you can do better than that! I’ve seen more creativity from a dumb, brainwashed hassidic Joo than I’ve seen from you!

Really!?

I don’t have to do better. First of all, it’s accurate. Second, do you really think the Jew comment bothers me? Yup, I’m a JOOOOO. And I’m successful, with a family, 2 houses. As are most of my brothers – I mean that nationally. JOOOOOOOS are successful, powerful, influential, wealthy. All the things you’re not. Your comment underlies you’re petty and pathetic jealousy. Honestly, I’m just embarrassed for you.

Arch Bungle

LOOOL! The Joo serf thinks his two hovels bought on on credit, and shitty little inbred family is a mark of wealth!
Your standards are fantastically low :-)

Power? Influence? Wealth? Fool, if you had either of the three you would not be pissing your time away on forums with arguments devoid of fact, logic and intellectual substance.

Do go on proving what a tool of the hasbara propaganda movement you are. I find it entertaining …

Really!?

Do you really think calling me a serf is an insult of any kind. I know how I live, what I do, where I travel. JOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOS are wealthier per capita than most other ethnic groups and most certainly more than you. Same for Nobel prizes, patents, etc. you simply can’t compete. Now if you want to open a mouth to me personally I’m still waiting for you to man up.

d'Artagnan

You seem to be ignorant or deliberately malicious towards Iran. In reality, thanks to massive Chinese assistance Iran has handled the US lab created virus very well and has contained it with a relatively small loss of life and is now easing the lockdowns. I was in Tehran recently and things are coming to a new normal. Iranian population handled the tough situation with aplomb and needs to be commended, despite the inhuman sanctions imposed by the US and the Zionist lobby. China deserves the most respect and gratitude and even India has sent a ship loaded with wheat to bolster Iranian food stocks. Juvenile hate mongering will not change the facts on the ground. Iran has done well as was expected from an ancient great nation.

Ashok Varma

India is sending more fraternal help to Iran with more food and medical supplies.

Free man

I oppose the mullahs regime.
The virus was created in China and Iranian citizens are paying dearly for the mullahs’ criminal treatment of the Corona crisis.
But that doesn’t stop them from boasting about a fake corona radar .

Arch Bungle

Before you bitch on about the fake corona radar, why don’t you talk about the fake bomb detectors the Americans sold the Iraqis. How many lives were lost to those?

Luke Hemmming

For one to be able to feed oneself you need to protect oneself from the greed of the enemy who seeks to take the food from your hands. Security and protection first then you can concentrate on other things. This is the case too when you play games like Caesar or Empire Earth. You need to provide security for your people so they can then work without the worry of been attacked.

Free man

I don’t think anyone wants to attack Iran. The mullahs regime is the one trying to export its Islamic revolution in a violent way.

Arch Bungle

You’re deluded.

There are documented plans to attack Iran.

Netanyahoo often states he wants the US to attack Iran.

How can you be so ignorant of publically available information?

“Bomb bomb Iraaaaan” — Senatir Mcain to AIPAC.

Really!?

There are detailed plans?? Show us. You’re clearly a high level operative with high level security clearance. So prove to us you’re something more than a loser

Doom Sternz

At least 30 Iranian guided missiles hit Al Asad Air Base in Iraq, home of the United States Air Force and largest base in Iraq. The pentagon now admits 109 casualties, there are many dead and the cover up is a disgrace. Trump threatened to murder the PM of Iraq, ordered the Marines to murder protesters and ordered the murder of Soleimani while he was on a peace mission. Crimes don’t get worse than this.

This is why Iran is militarising and why the rogue US regime can not attack Iran. Trump must go before the Hague.

d'Artagnan

The quality and capability of Iranian weapons is now growing immensely as China and Iran are reaching the zenith of cooperation in all fields. The Chinese have shown great friendship and unconditional support for Iran during the coronavirus emergency.

Assad must stay

very nice great job congratulations iran

Ashok Varma

In the latest global firepower, Iran is punching above its weight with its top world rankings military and capabilities for a country under four decades of illegal embargoes and pressure. Well done Iran.
