Iran’s army tests suicide drone in military drills

Iran’s army has deployed a suicide drone for the first time in massive ongoing military drills near the strategic Strait of Hormuz at the entrance to the Persian Gulf. 

Gen. Ahmad Reza Pourdastan, the army’s chief commander of ground forces, is quoted by Iranian state media on Saturday as calling the unmanned aircraft “a mobile bomb”. The drone, named Yasir according to one Iranian newspaper, has been designed to plunge into aerial and ground targets, as well as ships. 
The six-day military exercise is being carried out over 527,000 square kilometers in the northern part of the Indian Ocean, Sea of Oman and eastern part of Persian Gulf, through which one-fifth of the world’s oil supply passes.
