Iranian Defense Minister Brigadier General Amir Hatami on Monday inaugurated the mass production line of the country’s new tactical unmanned aerial vehicle armed with a precision-guided bomb, local media reports.

Iran’s Mohajer 6 drone equipped with Qaem precision-guided bomb has the capability to carry out surveillance, reconnaissance and combat missions within a wide operational radius and can help the Armed Forces identify and destroy pre-determined targets, Defense Minister Hatami was quoted as saying by Press TV during the launch ceremony.

The minister noted that the new Iranian drone was capable of sending intelligence to control and command centers during day and night and could take off from and land on short runways, adding that it could help conduct aerial surveillance for a long time and hit targets with high precision.

Mohajer-6 is the first UAV of the Mohajer family that is armed with a guided weapon system and is bigger than the other types of Mohajer family. The Iranian Mohajer-4 UAV have been successfully used during conflicts in Syria and Iraq, and allegedly in Lebanon.
