Iran’s drones are ready!
DR. ABDUL RUFF COLACHAL
Iran is ready with its one drone modeler on US specimen. Tehran has reproduced the unmanned US ScanEagle aircraft that its forces have captured last year.
An Iranian Revolutionary Guards air defense commander, Farzad Esmayeeli, said he presented a copy of the drone during a meeting with Russian Air Force chief Viktor Bondarev in Tehran. The drone built by the Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps (IRGC) is a symbol of the technical capabilities of the Islamic Iran. "today we presented a real model of it as a gift to Lieutenant General Viktor Bondarev and the Russian people." Esmayeeli is now in charge of air defense at the Khatam al-Anbia base.
Iran has claimed advances in drone technology ever since its forces appeared to have captured a U.S. RQ-170 Sentinel two years ago. Iran claims to have brought down the drone, but U.S. officials said the aircraft had malfunctioned.
Last month, Iran's army unveiled a highly mobile drone, called Yasseer, which media reports described as resembling the US ScanEagle. In December, 2012, Iran said its forces also captured a ScanEagle and vowed to reverse-engineer and reproduce the craft.
Meanwhile Iran’s new president Rouhani had a 15-minute phone conversation with Barack Obama, the first contact between the presidents of the two countries since the 1979 Iranian revolution ousted the brutal regime of US ally, Shah Reza Pahlavi.
So a credible rapprochement in US-Iran relations is possible?
Will Israel that sued drones as their trump terror equipment against besieged Palestinians be worried now over Iranian drones?
