Iran and the ‘Drone warfare’

United States and Israel are world’s largest user of the un-manned aerial vehicle (UAV). The US is using UAVs in Pakistan, Afghanistan and Somalia on daily bases. According to some arms-magazines, Israel is the main supplier of drones to United States. Last week, Israel announced selling of over a dozen drones to Azerbaijan – which are intended to be used for spying over neighboring Iran and Armenia. The CIA has used UAVs over the Islamic Republic to collect data on country’s nuclear program. The Zionist regime has admitted using UAVs over neighboring Lebanon to spy on its No.1 enemy Hizballah.

Iran is the only among the 57-Muslim states which not only produces UAVs but has exported the technology to Venezuela and Lebanon. Last December, Iranian forces brought down one of America’s most advanced  RQ-170 Sentinel stealth aircraft while inside Iranian space. Early this month, Lebanese Islamic Resistance, Hizballah sent a drone over Israel which transmitted back photos of Israeli military positions around country’s Dimona nuclear reactor before it was shot down by Israeli F16 jets.

Today, Iran’s defense minister Brig. Gen. Ahmad Vahidi announced that Hizballah UAV which penetrated deep into Israeli airspace was not among Iran’s top drones.

“The Islamic Republic of Iran currently has unmanned aerial vehicles with a technology by far more advanced than the drone recently flown by the resistance movement of Hezballah in the Zionist regime’s airspace,” Vahidi said on Sunday.

Israel had spread enormous propaganda about its air defense system and Iron Dome but Hezbollah’s drone disgraced Tel Aviv, he pointed out.

The Israeli Iron Dome has been developed by the US-Israel to counter short-range ballistic missiles the cost of which was absorbed by the US taxpayers.

Hizballah dare-devil operation, code-named Hussein Ayub, saw drone fly hundreds of kilometers into the Israeli airspace and get very close to Dimona nuclear plant without being detected by advanced Israeli and US radars, Hezbollah Secretary General Nasrallah said during a televised speech on October 11.

“Given the Zionist regime’s frequent incursions into the Lebanese airspace, we see it as the natural right of Lebanon’s Hezbollah to fly its drone above the Occupied Territories,” Vahidi had congratulated Hizballah on October 14, 2012.

One Response to Iran and the ‘Drone warfare’

  1. Naeem says:

    As you have seen me comment before on the sophistication of iranian warfare abilities. Iran has changed the style of warfare before most components of rival military tech was russian. The US invested many manhours into finding back channels into exposing these military equipment. But iran nad china has changed h
    the game not only does the US have to worry about russia its has o now worry about iran and china, the sanctions have been a blessing on the iranian military they mashallah have become self sufficent in creating their own advance hardware. The US has next to none spies in iran most of iranian tech is top secret and the US has no idea what iran has until iran shows its in one of its operations. Iran beat the zionist west in 2006 in electronic and physical war on the battlefield due to asymmetric warfare capabilities they have identified the weakness of the superior western tech and has created ways into bypassing those i.e Blowing up of the 5th generation frigate INS HANIT. They have created their own Raad air defence system which is very much same as the BUk m2 russian system but with a better missile than the russians. Inshallah in the future we will finally see an isamic nation that can take on the worlds best and it will be a big wake up call for the zionist savages because its something their arrogance will never let them see.
