October 26, 2013
The Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps has provided the Russian army with a copy of the US ScanEagle drone which was hunted by the IRGC in 2012 and a video showing how Iran monitors the trans-regional countries' vessels and equipment in the Persian Gulf.
"The drone built by the IRGC is a symbol of the technical capabilities of the Islamic Iran and today we presented a real model of it as a gift to (Russian Air Force Commander) Lieutenant General Viktor Bondarev and the Russian people," Commander of Iran’s Khatam ol-Anbia Air Defense Base Brigadier General Farzad Esmayeeli said after a meeting with Bondarev in Tehran.
Esmayeeli also gifted Bondarev a video of the IRGC's monitoring of the trans-regional states' warships and equipment in the Persian Gulf to be given to Russian Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu.
On December 4, Commander of the IRGC Navy Rear Admiral Ali Fadavi announced that his forces hunted a US Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) over the Persian Gulf after the drone violated the country's airspace.
