Iran Unveils Shahed-129 Attack Drone
Iran's Revolutionary Guard has unveiled an attack drone, capable of carrying missiles and described as the unit's "most sophisticated" so far. The Guard's website, sepahnews.com, says General Mohammad Ali Jafari unveiled the drone on Friday. He is quoted as saying the all-Iranian-made drone is a strategic asset in protecting the nation's borders. The website says the drone, dubbed Shahed-129, or Witness-129, can fly up to a distance of 1,700 kilometres (1,062 miles), which puts much of the Middle East within its range. It says the drone has a 24-hour non-stop flight capability, can carry eight bombs or missiles, and hit both fixed and moving targets.
