MOSCOW, October 8 (RIA Novosti)
Iran's national defense system has been equipped with advanced radars capable of detecting unmanned aerial vehicles, a senior military commander said on Saturday.
“No unauthorized unmanned aircraft now dares fly over the Islamic Republic of Iran,” Brigadier General Farzad Esmaili said, according to Press TV.
Iran’s Air Defense Forces are ready to destroy any unmanned aircraft in the country's air space, he said.
Esmaili announced last month air defense specialists had designed a space radar capable detecting and tracking cruise missiles, low-flying aircraft and objects located at a distance of several thousands kilometers.
