Iran's newest addition to the UAV family was unveiled on November 18, 2013. The UAV, titled Fotros is designed and assembled by Iran's Ministry of Defence and is the largest capable unmanned aircraft developed by the country to date. Defense Minister Brigadier General Hossein Dehqan will be present in the unveiling ceremony of the new drone. In September 2012, Iran announced that it has started using UAVs for its air defense units as part of its broader plans for strengthening the country's air defense capability. The drone can be used as a target for air defense systems. In addition, it can carry out reconnaissance missions. Furthermore, the unmanned drone can be equipped with missiles and used for aerial bombardments. Courtesy of: Farsnews and NasimNews

    There's no way that tiny 2 bladed propeller will get that POS up to altitude. It looks more suited for a micro-light.

    Interesting that in a country that professes to hate the Western World, the flags still say 'remove before flight,' and the tail still has 'no hand holds' printed in English!

    Take 20 Iranian terrorist, tie ropes onto the 'drone'. You then replace the rockets. or bombs. or what ever it had under it's wings with 2 suicide bombers. As the 20 terrorist pull the 'drone' through the desert they might just blow them self up. Isn't modern warfare great?
