ImageTEHRAN, Iran (AP) – Iran's state TV says the country has launched two production lines of unmanned aircraft, or drones.

The Monday report quoted Iran's defense minister, Gen. Ahmad Vahidi, as saying the planes will be able to carry out surveillance as well as attack tasks with high precision.

Iran said a year ago it has built an unmanned surveillance aircraft with a range of more than 600 miles (1,000 kilometers), long enough to reach Israel.

Also Monday, a senior air force Commander, Gen. Heshmatollah Kasiri, told the official IRNA news agency that Iran would soon deploy a missile air defense system that's more powerful than the Russian S-300 system that Tehran has ordered from Moscow but not yet received.
