“IRGC Aviation is now fully capable of providing its needs in the field of modernization and overhaul of the squadrons,” Major General Hossein Salami said on Monday in a ceremony at the Fat’h Air Base near Tehran.

During the ceremony, attended by a number of IRGC commanders, the force unveiled a laser-guided missile system that will be installed on the IRGC helicopters.

Major General Salami pointed to the vital role of IRGC Aviation in maintaining the country’s security, adding, “The force has experienced considerable progress in the field of offensive, transportation and logistic helicopters.”

The commander of IRGC Ground Force, Brigadier General Mohammad Pakpour, who was also present at the ceremony, said, “All essential grounds for the application of helicopters in IRGC operations have been provided.”

“We are currently able to use such equipment in all operational zones,” he added.

Bro, how do you know that? Care to elaborate?
I just speculated things based on info available in the previous session when IRGC showed a newer quadrotor concept of attack helicopter.
the project already migrated from toophan to that project or even to another one.

I know what you mean.

Btw it doesn't mean that it will never be produced. Itd be a wrong prediction. Currently its facing budget problems, IRGC has some priorities that cannot be abandoned so most of their budget are spent on countreing Americans in Persian Gulf. If funded, then youd see tens of Toophans being produced.

Do they build these cameras in Iran? I mean the image sensors should be among the restricted items.
Well considering the number of flir based optronic systems that iran produces ranging from relatively simple sniper scopes right up to targeting pods and hd stabilized optronic mounts for drones and aircraft,where else would iran get all of the components from,I honestly doubt that it would be importing them at this point in the game.
Unfortunately theres just very little information [in english] to be found online about iranian optics and optronics industries,especially of a military nature.About one of the few sources would be information sheets for various products and an old defunct iranian chinese front company store on alibaba that was a front for the iranian rayan roshd company to sell its various products through.
