|IRGC presents Russian commander with Iranian-made drone||
TEHRAN – During a meeting with Russian Air Force Commander in Chief Lieutenant General Viktor Bondarev in Tehran on Monday, the commander of the Aerospace Force of the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps presented the Russian general with an Iranian-made unmanned aerial vehicle modeled on a U.S. ScanEagle drone.
Brigadier General Amir Ali Hajizadeh also said after the meeting that the UAV which had been manufactured by IRGC experts was a symbol of the technical capabilities of the Islamic Iran.
In December 2012, the commander of the IRGC Naval Force, Rear Admiral Ali Fadavi, announced that IRGC naval forces had captured a U.S. ScanEagle drone that had violated Iranian airspace.
In addition, Hajizadeh said that he had also presented the Russian general with a roll of film showing the vessels of extra-regional forces operating in the Persian Gulf captured during Iranian forces’ surveillance operations.
For his part, Bondarev said that the IRGC Aerospace Force had made great achievements, adding that the achievements indicated the fact that the IRGC had taken steps well ahead of its time.
