(Persia Digest) – The IRGC Aerospace Force has staged combat UAV drills in the Persian Gulf and announced that it has the largest fleet of drone bombers in the region.
Fifty RQ170 unmanned aerial vehicles were placed on show for the first time during the drills, together with a number of other combat UAVs.
This is the first time in Iran and the Middle East that these drones aim and strike at specific targets accurately from a distance of over 1000kms simultaneously.
Other models similar to the MQ1 US models were also used in these military exercises.
It must be noted that the Lockheed Martin RQ-170 Sentinel is an American unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) operated for the CIA which was captured after breaching Iranian air space in 2011 with the least damage incurred. Subsequently, Iran announced that it had reproduced the model with reverse engineering.
