Here’s the background: In the early hours of Sept. 14, the Iranian Air Force launched roughly 20 drones and cruise missiles at one of Saudi Arabia’s most important oil fields and processing facilities. The drones and cruise missiles flew so low and with such stealth that neither their takeoff nor their impending attack was detected in time by Saudi or U.S. radar. The pro-Iranian Houthi militia in Yemen claimed responsibility for the raid. That was as believable as saying that Santa Claus did it.
No proof of iran did that and the only reason they don't believe Yemen army did it is WOW factor . well less than a decade ago they somehow felt the same WOW factor for us.

The Israeli sources said the Saudis had no clue something might happen. “It seems that the Americans were also in the dark, which is very worrying. A greater cause for worry, is if Washington knew and did not share the data in time with the Saudis” one of the sources said.
Maybe because there is no evidence and it was not iran work at all

The weapon systems included seven Qudas 1 cruise missiles powered by Iranian-built jet engines derived from a Czech engine. Also, the Iranians used eight “loitering” weapons (drones) that were developed in Iran based on technology acquired in other countries.
The writer of the article even don't knew what weapon was used.

agreed, they are in shock but by there reports and some Israeli reports, Israel did inspect the weapons and they did find some kind of stealth materials used in UAVs so if there reports on this were to be true then they very well could be from Iran but for now they did not show any evidence to back up there claims that those were in fact Iranian and Iranian launched missiles and UAVs.

In light of all this, Israel has been signaling two things to Hezbollah and Iran. One is that in response to any missile attacks, Israel will carpet bomb neighborhoods in Lebanon where Hezbollah’s families live and where it manufactures the missiles, and turn them into rubble, as it did on a small scale in 2006. And it will make the Lebanese economy collateral damage.
Lol Everything is fair in war I suppose? :D

It’s 2020, “stealth” materials is no longer something held by top tier world powers. So just because something was found with stealth design (reduced RCS) or stealth materials (radar absorption/scatter material) doesn’t mean a world power did it.

Just like long range drone technology in 2000 was held only by top tier world powers, today even insurgent groups field long range drones.

Give it a single weapons bay, a rocket boosted 30km range superonic missile payload, plus a autonumious search algorithm for a search range out to 800km and it may be a future concept of anti-shipping.

Two Toloue engines could let it be made large enough to carry a 600kg supersonic "kill-stage" out to those ranges at high subsonic speed.

Moving in the right direction as I said earlier on this forum regarding what Iran should do. Future is supersonic high altitude flying wing bombers that can carry long range accurate glide bombs.

So here’s opening we get a jet powered large supersonic autonomous flying wing bomber.

A bit useless and redundant, Iran’s future supersonic anti ship missile will cover the entire PG. And this UAV is ship launched, any Iranian warship would likely not survive a war against the US, let alone have luxury of launching drones.

I think is more to eventually replace Iran’s aging helicopters on its Mowj series as well as for future Iranian destroyer. I expect next phase after that to be a small Iranian UAV carrier that flies various long range jet powered Iranian UAVs.

He also said that it is made by vazarate defa. Which in itself is great news since they have a good track record.
He mentioned the size to be 6m. I am guessing he means length of the craft and not the wingspan.
Any case. Very interesting concept!

as its bigger than Karar drone can we expect at least 1000 km range on it?
