Iran plans to mass-produce a domestic unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) after a successful wargame test in the Arabian Gulf and the Strait of Hormuz.
Islamic Revolution Guard Corps Aerospace Force Brigadier General Amir Ali Hajizadeh said the Pahpad UAV would go into production in the near future.
During reconnaissance flights, in an exercise codenamed Payambar-e Azam 5, the UAV provided real-time battleground data, according to the Fars News Agency.
There have been fears Iran would use UAV’s to spy on Israel, who are currently one of the world leaders in developing UAV technology.
Iran has been heavily involved in developing domestically designed and produced missile systems and aircraft in recent years.
