Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad has inaugurated the country's first domestically-built long-range unmanned bomber.

The 4-meter long unmanned plane, dubbed as Karrar or striker, was inaugurated by Ahmadinejad on Sunday, the national day for the country's defense industry.

The ceremony was aired live on state TV.

Iran has been producing its own light, unmanned surveillance aircraft since the late 1980s.

Since 1992, Iran has also produced its own tanks, armored personnel carriers, missiles, torpedoes and a fighter plane.

Iran launched an arms development program during its 1980-88 war with Iraq to compensate for a US weapons embargo.
