Ashtiani also highlighted the prominent role of UAVs in field combat, security operations, monitoring, and overall combat, underlining the strategic importance of drones in the air, sea, and land.
Commander-in-Chief of the Islamic Republic of Iran Army Major General Abdolrahim Mousavi had said the Iranian army was able to manufacture all sorts of drones and use them in service in light of the tough sanctions on the Islamic Republic over the past two years, due to the contributions of the young cadre in the army.
