DUBAI - Iran has built an advanced drone that can take off vertically and without a runway, Iranian media reported.

Iran's military regularly announces defense and engineering developments, though some analysts are skeptical of the reliability of such reports.



Abbas Jam, researcher on a project for a vertical take-off and landing (VTOL) drone, said on Saturday that the drone would be tested that day and "unveiled" next year, according to Iran's Mehr news agency.

The unmanned aircraft "enjoys ultra-advanced technology and has been built for the first time in the world," Jam said, according to Mehr.
