The airborne division هوانيروز of Iran’s Army Ground Force on Monday unveiled a series of homegrown equipment and achievements extending the capabilities of its helicopters.

In a ceremony in Tehran, high-ranking Army officials unveiled the latest achievements of the young experts serving in the Ground Force’s Airborne Unit.

The major item put on display in the event was a missile dubbed ‘Shafaq’ (Twilight شفق), which is mounted on military helicopters.

The homegrown air-launched missile can hit targets within a range of 8 to 12 kilometers.

Another highlight of the ceremony was the launch of a program to equip all airborne unit choppers with night-vision cameras دوربين ديد در شب, which would enhance aircraft capabilities in nocturnal military missions.

Also highlighted at the event was the accomplishment of a plan to arm all reconnaissance, logistical and transportation helicopters of the unit with rocket-launchers and heavy machine guns.

Iranian military experts and technicians have in recent years made great headways in manufacturing a broad range of indigenous equipment, making the armed forces self-sufficient in the arms sphere.
