No, Iranian secret special forces went their ahead of time and planted explosives in the site the night before. 😂
Ahhh these Iranian liars... Ready to do everything to promote their products 😂

We can also see on the videos, the explosions looks unnatural, i'm sure the Iranian propaganda terror sponsor regime used After Effect and photoshop to edit the videos...😂

This UAV project's existence has been known about since years.
Yes,sadly tho` it just hasnt been used for anything....at least not yet.
Ironically it was originally intended to be a target drone for the fakour 90,but then the airforce changed their mind and unveiled it as part of their new drone force.
This would potentially make a pretty good bomb truck or perhaps a carrier for smaller drones/loitering munitions.
This is where old airframes like these could have a potentially very useful second life as essentially a type of cheap loyal wingman conversion.One could easily imagine all of the interesting possibilities for countries like the dprk with a large force of well maintained,or at least flyable,obsolescent airframes at their disposal.
I`m honestly surprised that the iriaf has not seen the potential,but then again just look at how long it took them to actually get serious about drone tech.........,so this might be one for the irgcaf.

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.

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.

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?

Here is a video from the same company six years ago, they have been working on the AI swarm in the past few years.
