The Iranian Air Force plans to deploy reconnaissance drones along the country's border, an Air Force commander announced on Sunday. Speaking in an interview with FNA, Deputy Lieutenant Commander of Army's Air Force for Operations General Majid Pirhadi underlined that Unmanned Arial Vehicles (UAVs) will cover all the country's border regions in the near future. "We are seeking to equip all the country's central (air) bases with long-range UAVs but for now equipping bases along borders sets a priority," Pirhadi stated. The commander highlighted the growing applications of UAVs in Iran's armed forces, and announced that the Air Force command headquarters plans to form a command-and-control center for UAVs. "Utilization of the UAVs plays a vital role in the strengthening of the Armed Forces' offensive and defensive capabilities. Accordingly, we seek to equip all the country's air bases with different types of drones," he noted. The commander added that all border bases in western and southern Iran will be equipped with UAVs by the end of summer (September 2010). He mentioned that these drones are currently tasked with intelligence and information gathering and reconnaissance missions and that the Iranian Army plans to use different types of drones for combat, reconnaissance, disruption and communication missions. Earlier in June, Lieutenant Commander of Iran's Air Force Mohsen Darrebaqi told FNA that the Iranian Air Force plans to form a battalion of Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs) in all its bases across the country. Iran successfully tested a home-made radar-evading UAV with bombing capabilities last June. Also in 2008, the country's Defense Industries launched production lines of two well-known home-made fighter jets, namely Saeqeh (Thunderbolt) and Azarakhsh (Lightening). Iran had earlier started construction of a plant in the northern province of Mazandaran in 2008 to mass produce UAVs for different civilian and military missions.
