Ahhh these Iranian liars... Ready to do everything to promote their productsNo, Iranian secret special forces went their ahead of time and planted explosives in the site the night before.
Yes,sadly tho` it just hasnt been used for anything....at least not yet.This UAV project's existence has been known about since years.
There are 2 confirmed losses (probably a third but it's disputable). However, it is eviscerating Ukrainian targets mercilessly and the majority of claims of them being downed are false.View attachment 884256
Yesterday, the Shahed-136 Geran-2 kamikaze UAV visited the Ukrainian army ammunition depot somewhere at the front, which can be understood from the characteristic boxes in the background. The Ukrainian military again claims that they managed to shoot down the drone, but judging by the fact that only the MD550 engine remained, the drone worked properly.
By the way, the Ukrainian air defense is still losing dry to new drones: for the entire time of using these toys, not a single Shahed has been shot down. The Ukrainian military also claims that the UAVs operate in pairs.
Here is a video from the same company six years ago, they have been working on the AI swarm in the past few years.Salam. This appears to be a version of the switchblade series called feihong-901 with reportedly 10 times larger payload than it's western counterpart, deployable from a truck mounted launcher and helicopters.
What about Iran develops one of it's own that an infantryman can launch from a portable tube pack but can also be deployed from vehicle launchers and helicopters?
