Commander of Khatam ul-Anbiya Air Defense Base Brigadier General Farzad Esmaili in interview with Mehr News Agency provided comments on the most recent achievements of Iran’s air defense system.
Esmaili said "In the field of the design and building of radars, missiles, drones, and other equipment we have made considerable achievements whose technology is in the hands of the country’s youth.”
"Today the Islamic country of Iran is among the few countries that have something to say in the radar making technology,” he asserted.
Providing comments on Iran’s access to the U2 data he maintained that Iran is in possession of documents and the taped voice of the U2 pilot, adding "Today there are many countries that cannot even spot these kinds of air crafts, while we have the documents as well as the pilot’s voice who obeys our warning and flies away without intrusion.”
He further stated that Iran’s air defense system covers 3,600 strategic spots.
"Many countries which even have military agreements with such extra-regional powers are worried why their drones fly over their lands. But that is something you do not see in Iran,” the Khatam ul-Anbiya air defense base commander said.
