There will be a way to counter these drones quite easily just jam GPS, and use spoofing EW against drones.

Few excerpts from IISS publication April 2021
Open-source analysis on Iran’s missile and UAV capabilities and proliferation


Uninhabited aerial vehicles
Iran already operates UAVs across most weight categories. In NATO terms, air vehicles between 15 and 150 kg are considered Class I and are sometimes described as small, 150 to 600 kg are in Class II and often considered medium, and those above 600 kg are Class III and often considered heavy. For example, within Iran’s Mohajer family, the Mohajer-2 is a light UAV, the Mohajer-4 medium, and the Shahed-129 is within the heavy class. Size matters in that in broad terms this determines the maximum weight of the payload, sensor suite, communications and, depending on the role, weapons that can be carried, as well as the operational radius of the air vehicle.
UAVs are operated by all three services of the regular armed forces and by the IRGC.

Iran uses UAVs in part to supplement or replace roles traditionally associated with combat aircraft that it cannot maintain. But beyond that, recent exercises show the breadth of roles for which UAVs and loitering munitions are now being used. In January 2021, a UAV exercise billed as the largest one yet carried out by Iran’s armed forces included ISR and ground-attack missions, as well as the use of loitering munitions and attack UAVs.

The widespread adoption of UAVs in the Iranian inventory also supports the development of a range of small air-to-surface munitions designed for UAV applications. As with the air vehicles there is a multiplicity of designs, the development and service status of which is not always certain. Small glide-bombs such as those in the Qaem/Ghaem and Sadid families, and small missiles such as the Almas (externally similar to the 1.5–4 kmrange Israeli Spike) and the Qaem 114 (externally similar to the 11 km-range US AGM-114 Hellfire), are all associated with UAV applications. Electro-optical, infrared and semi-active laser guidance have been employed among these classes of weapons.

Iran's weapons are not the problem. It is its rogue behavior that will get it what it deserves, eventually.
How can its rogue behavior be so impossible to contain if its weapons were not also a "problem"? you're contradicting yourself bro!

thats not been proven in the battlefied, even though everybody says it....fact is that IRan has done surprisingingly enough damage with primitive and simple weapons against US and its allies in Iraq..even those 107mm rockets...simple, yes, but effective nonetheless, and some of you are denying that, but let me say this- if you are on PDF saying IRan's drones are primitive, FOR EXAMPLE @Titanium100 , you are nothing but an IRAN HATER.

Iran is in top 3 of world drone masters. If you dont agree, there is a good chance you're an Iran hater, cuz u have to hate when the truth is right in your face, so its not about the truth. not all US bases have C-ram, and obv Iran and its PMU allies in IRaq seem to have good effective intelligence on different ways to exploit US base vulnerabiliy..US bases get hit EVERY WEEK, and nothing really happens....stop pretending and living in fake world. lol

All I'm saying is that with every advancement there is a counter, laser systems seem promising and GPS spoofing.

It is a game of cat and mouse, every advancement leads to a counter and that is a never ending cycle of human nature. Who knows what kind of systems will be used in 20, 30, 40, 50 years for example but I can guarantee you that for every single one of those systems a counter will be thought of and implemented.

GPS Hacking was indeed the technique used by Iran to force land the RQ-170 in the Iranian desert..
Russian technology , not İranian

RQ-170 guidance have been targeted by 1L222 AVTOBAZA jamming and deception system supplied to Iran by Russia

The weapons are easily countered. Iranian support to terror groups is not. There is no contradiction in what I have said above.

The Iraq war 2003 left the US deteriorated from war, war weary and in major debt with no clear victory, they removed Iran's enemy and put Shia ISIS to rule Iraq.

The IRGC dancing to this means nothing, all empty threats with a state which would crumble when facing true military aggression.
