BEIRUT, LEBANON (8:20 A.M.) – An exhibition opened last Wednesday at Tehran’s Grand Mosalla and includes 560 pieces of military hardware, including several drones and missiles.

The display will run through until February 11 and it is part of the celebrations for the 40th anniversary of the Iranian Revolution.

The latest weapon is the Kaman-12 drone that is capable of flying for ten straight hours at 124mph (200km/h) with a full payload. The drone has a twin tail design.

Ballistic rockets – named Khorramshahr, Sejjil, Ghadr F and Ghadr H; Qiam, Shahab 1, Shahab 2, Zelzal, Zolfaghar, Hormoz and Khalij Fars – are all being exhibited as well, together with a new cruise missile with a range of 1,200 kilometers (840 miles) which was unveiled at the exhibition.

“When we see this huge amount of capability, so we feel pride and it gives self-confidence to us. It gives a feeling to us that nobody can invade or attack our country,” said Reza, a visitor.
