Today, we are self-sufficient in the military field despite the sanctions," Hajizadeh said in Tehran on Saturday.

"The most advanced radars, missiles, drones and tanks are built inside the country and this success has been achieved due to the Jihadi spirit (of the Iranian specialists)," he added.

His remarks came after Iran unveiled a newly-developed drone which is equipped with home-made hi-tech air-based missiles.

"Drones equipped with air defense missiles have been built" by the Defense Ministry, the Aviation Industries and Aerospace Industries specialists in a move to meet the needs of the Armed Forces, Deputy Defense Minister Brigadier General Amir Hatami announced on Tuesday.

He said that the drones had been prepared to be delivered to the Armed Forces after passing different tests, adding that the new aircraft had increased the operational range and zone of the drones as well as their capability to trace, intercept and destroy aggressive aircraft.

"These new drones are capable of destroying different types of aircraft, including fighter jets, drones and helicopters," Hatami said.
