Iran‘s Revolutionary Guards have unveiled an attack drone, capable of carrying missiles and described as the unit’s most sophisticated so far.
According to their website, sepahnews.com, General Mohammad Ali Jafari unveiled the drone on Friday.
He was quoted as saying the Iranian-made drone was a strategic asset in protecting the nation’s borders.
The drone, called Shahed-129, or Witness-129, can fly up to 1,700km (1,000 miles), the website said, which puts much of the Middle East within its range.
It added that the drone had a 24-hour non-stop flight capability, could carry eight bombs or missiles, and could hit both fixed and moving targets.
Iran has claimed to have captured several US drones, including an advanced RQ-170 Sentinel CIA spy drone in December 2011 and at least three ScanEagle aircraft.
