Iran's Army wrapped up the 1402 joint drone exercise with the achievement of predetermined goals.

Iran PressIran news: The drone drill kicked off on Tuesday morning across Iran with the participation of about 200 different drones selected from the four forces of the Islamic Republic Army. 

Brigadier General Alireza Sheikh said that the joint exercise ended this evening, and the capabilities of the army's planes were verified during offensive operations against electronic warfare systems and Iranian weapons as defense systems in the region.

He described the drone technology of the Islamic Republic of Iran as institutionalized knowledge and the Iranian armed forces as a power in the world.

Rear Admiral Habibollah Sayyari, the deputy chief of the Iranian Army for Coordination, said on Tuesday that nearly 200 drones cover strategic waters of the Persian Gulf and the Sea of Oman, all four corners of the country and its central part.

“Due to the expansion of unmanned aerial capabilities, execution of various and numerous drone missions, and the need to coordinate such flights, the Army has set up Zolfaqar command and control network for the drone operations,” Sayyari said.

“This exercise exhibits only a small fraction of the achievements made by the Islamic Republic of Iran Army in connection with domestically-developed drones,” he pointed out.

Iran has made great progress in the drone industry in recent years. 219
