"An instance of the operations conducted by the Army drones was displayed during the joint wargames of the Army forces staged in the Southeastern parts of the country late in December," he added.

Iran announced in January that it had successfully tested three suicide combat drones in the recent Mohammad Rasoulallah (PBUH) wargames in December.

"We tested three models of suicide unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs), which were a type of cruise missiles and have been fully manufactured by Iranian experts," Lieutenant Commander of the Iranian Ground Force Brigadier General Kioumars Heidari told reporters.

He noted that the tested drones enjoyed a very advanced technology and were from Ra'd (Thunder) 85 Class.

Iran has recently made giant advancements in aerospace industries, specially in designing and manufacturing pilotless drones.

Also in September 2013, Commander of the Iranian Army Ground Force Brigadier General Ahmad Reza Pourdastan announced that the country's suicide combat drone named 'Ra'd 85' (Thunder 85) was capable of destroying fixed and mobile targets.
