A domestically-manufactured unmanned combat aerial vehicle named Kaman-12 was also showcased in the parade.
The homegrown Kowthar fighter jet, a domestically-developed jet fighter that features an advanced integrated architecture and fire control avionics was the other military achievement that was put on display during the parades.
The domestically-built air defence missile system 'Bavar-373' was also showcased during the parades in Tehran. Bavar-373 is a mobile surface-to-air missile system. It uses a long-range, phased-array fire control radar, dubbed Meraj 4, which can detect 300 air targets simultaneously.
Various divisions of Iran’s Armed Forces staged an annual military parade on the 1st day of the Sacred Defense Week, which marks the 39th anniversary of the eight-year Ba'athist Iraqi imposed war on Iran.
