Some of modern drones included in the arsenal of Azerbaijani Armed Forces in recent years are planned to be demonstrated in the military parade held in Baku, June 26, military sources told APA.

Along with Aerostar tactical and Orbiter-2m mini drones produced at local facilities, Heron and Hermes UAVs purchased from Israel will also be demonstrated.

The drones in the inventory of Azerbaijani Armed Forces were demonstrated in the military parade in 2008 for the first time.

In 2011, Baku together with the Israeli Aeronautics Defense company started producing Aerostar and Orbiter 2M drones. In 2011-2012, Azerbaijan bought Heron and Hermes-450 UAVs from Israel and they are expected to be demonstrated in the military parade.
