Iran’s Army Ground Force (AGF) unveiled new homemade military gears, including a reconnaissance drone and an armored fighting vehicle.

The new gears were unveiled in a ceremony attended by senior Iranian commanders in the capital Tehran on Thursday, Tasnim news agency reported.

A hand-launched drone, named “Farpad,” which fits for reconnaissance and patrol operations, was displayed in the ceremony, according to the report.

Farpad is designed for intelligence collection and serves in the mobile offense brigades or rapid reaction squads.

The drone is equipped with the autopilot system, a portable ground station, and imaging apparatus for day and night flights.

Another product unveiled in the event was “Rueen-Tan,” which is a light-weight armored vehicle and resistant to steel core ammunition.

The vehicle is equipped with modern technologies, operates with great power and agility and can save the lives of personnel in the battlefield or against terrorist attacks, the report said.

Another homegrown item displayed in the ceremony was “Heidar-1” smart robot.

The network-based robot is a six-wheel drive vehicle that can carry loads, is supplied with 360-degree rotating wheels, and can also detect the barriers.

The AGF also unveiled a portable jamming system that can detect and disrupt various types of hostile multirotor drones.

Moreover, a guidance and control system, “Labbayk-1,” which is used on missiles with pinpoint accuracy, was put on show. The system has passed tests in the laboratory and in the field.

According to the report, the new products have been designed and manufactured by the Research and Self-Sufficiency Jihad Organization of the Iranian Army.
