Tehran, Dec 17, IRNA -- Drone unit of the Iranian Army Ground Force's Airborne Division (Havanirouz) is to be formed before long, the commander of the force told the Islamic Republic News Agency (IRNA).

'The drone unit is to be formed soon,' said Brigadier-General Yousef Qorbani, adding that the force has already been using helicopters to do reconnaissance but drones are going to be used for that purpose.

He said from now on 'some operations' will be done by drones, adding that Iran enjoys one of the strongest drone units in the region, including assault, electronic, reconnaissance, transportation, and suicide ones.
