While the world continues to debate economic sanctions against Iran, Tehran is moving ahead, adding to its military capabilities. The Iranian FARS news agency reports that Iran has now produced combat helicopters which are named Toufan (Hurricane), choppers that are equipped with hi-tech weaponry including anti-tank missiles.

Iranian Defense Minister Brigadier General Ahmad Vahidi is quoting as confirming the report, boasting the advanced capabilities of the choppers, which now join the growing military armaments boasted by Iran.

The country successfully tested a home-made radar-evading UAV with bombing capabilities in June. Also in 2008, Iran’s Defense Industries launched production lines of two well-known home-made fighter jets, namely Saeqeh (Thunderbolt) and Azarakhsh (Lightening).

Also Iran in March 2009 started construction of a plant in the northern province of Mazandaran to mass produce Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs).
