It's speed is a huge factor: it can scan a wider area of the sea with it's radar. It would scan the areas in front of the naval group and inform it or attack if allowed to do so. It's 3-4 times faster than a MQ-9 and scans thus a 3-4 time larger area. So that about the value of speed here. Over horizon targeting is a must have for a blue water naval group with Iran's opponents. Range should be in the 1000+ on class even if turbojets are used instead of turbofans. I hope it gets are conformal SAR.
