Heres a very interesting pic that I found,its probably the first appearance [2014] of the drone that would go on,in modified form,to become the airforces Kaman 12 ucav.

Later on the nose would be enlarged and the landing gear modified.

Before finally being modified again with a larger nose,a larger engine and prop,and some extensions to the tail and wingtips.Possibly the tail booms have been modified and strengthened as well.

Its crazy how much bigger the nose has gotten,and I certainly dont think that these modifications have improved its looks any.

Heres one of the small single cylinder powered delta wing mini drones.

These would be ideal drone for swarm type tactics,just imagine a jet powered version using the little amt micro jet engine

fun fact about flying wing. They actually have lower RCS the BIGGER they get. That’s why something as massive as B-2 has such a lower RCS.

I found some more pics of the mohajem 92 and Kaman 12 forerunners and it now seems pretty obvious that both of these have been very heavily modified ftom the original.


We can now clearly see just how much has been modified in the mohajem 92.In addition to the new taller landing gear and larger nose we can also see that the tailbooms have been lengthened as have the vertical tail surfaces,also the angle of the verticals is far less and the winglets on the bottom of the verticals have been cut back to match.It looks like the wings have been lengthened as well.


We can see just how far both the nose and tail section have been lengthened,plus the extra reinforcing on the tailbooms,in addition both the vertical and horizontal stabilizers have been lengthened as well.

This is a giant increase in IRGC-N's surveillance capability in the Persian Gulf. Don't forget most of these UAVs have a dual use as "suicide UAVs". Moreover. all these systems greatly increase the number of targets the enemy has to deal with in case of a conflict. Like I have said previously, Persian Gulf is in Iran's pocket and this will be maintained. We now need to work on greatly expanding our access denial area.
