Iran’s Air Defense Unit has designed and built drones to fight and hunt enemies’ Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs) with reconnaissance or bombing missions, a top military official announced on Sunday.

“Different drones are being designed and built in Khatam ol-Anbia Air Defense Base, including Sarir (long-range, long-endurance radar-evading air defense) drone, whose production has gifted us very good progress,” Commander of Iran’s Air Defense Unit Brigadier General Farzad Esmayeeli told FNA today.

Elaborating on the mission of these drones, the General said these pilotless aircraft are used in the base for training forces in detecting, targeting and fighting enemy drones.
