Iran will demonstrate its first indigenous helicopter gunship during an upcoming drill, a top military commander said on Wednesday, Press TV reported.

Brigadier General Kiomars Heidari, deputy commander of the Iranian Army's Ground Forces, said the Cobra Melli (National Cobra) attack helicopter will be deployed by Army airborne units in the near future, Fars News Agency reported.

“In the past, the army’s airborne units were hugely dependent on countries that built helicopters but thanks to the efforts of Iranian experts…such dependency has entirely been done away with,” Heidari said.

“We now depend on native forces to conduct all repair and maintenance work on our helicopter fleets.”
