The Iranian Air Force (IRIAF) has unveiled a new indigenous drone named “Mohajem (Attacker) 92” with a range of 500 kilometers.
The drone was shown to the public in the Aerial Exhibition, which commenced on Tuesday.
The Drone ‘Mohajem 92’ enjoys 6-hour flight endurance and is able to fly as fast as 200 kilometers per hour at the sea level. The drone has a weight of 80 kilograms and can carry out operations within a 100-km radius.
The version that has been displayed in Tehran is a reconnaissance drone, and is not a combat aircraft. However, it is possible that the military version would also be manufactured based on the Army’s needs.
The Islamic Republic is now in possession of a broad range of UAVs that can be used for both civilian and military purposes.
Back in May 2014, the Iranian version of the US advanced RQ-170 drone was unveiled in a ceremony attended by Supreme Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyed Ali Khamenei.
The IRGC Aerospace Force manufactured the stealth drone through reverse engineering. A US made Lockheed Martin RQ-170 sentinel unmanned aerial vehicle was captured by Iranian forces near the city of Kashmar in northeastern Iran on December 4, 2011.
