Iran has announced the production of new combat helicopters ahead of a “massive air defense” exercise and other large-scale war games that are scheduled to take place in October and at other points throughout the year. Iran’s armed forces and its Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) are set to team up for a set of drills aimed at testing Tehran’s ability to intercept and destroy “different types of aircraft, choppers, and Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs),” according to Iran’s state run Fars News Agency.
