    رای نخستین بار تعداد ۵۰ فروند هواپیمای بدون سرنشین تهاجمی ۱۷۰ RQ ایرانی همراه با تعدادی دیگر از پهپادهای تهاجمی و رزمی شرکت کردند.

    این برای اولین بار در کشور ما و نیز کشورهای دیگر است که این تعداد پهپاد همزمان در یک عملیات تهاجمی - رزمی، در فاصله بیش از هزار کیلومتر دورتر از هدف همزمان پرواز و در یک زمان مشخص با حضور روی اهداف از پیش تعیین شده آنها را با دقت بالا مورد اصابت قرار داده و منهدم کرد.


    Iranian UAVs carried out operations from more than 1,000 km away

    For the first time, IRGC aerospace force deployed 50 armed drones including RQ170 variants in a single mission during a war game dubbed "toward Beitol moghadas (Jerusalem)" in Persian gulf.

    a variant of MQ1 has participated in the war game as well !

    They said MQ-1 size ... Which means S-129 !

    And the only similarity between Iranian S-191 drones and RQ-170 is their shapes ... Nothing more !

    S-171 is a copy of RQ-170 which also have a lot of differences inside ...

    Keep it coming!!!

    You guys think with a sufficient power plant we could see bigger drones carrying larger payloads, maybe even long range missiles?

    Hajizadeh said flight of drones Similar to MQ1 is a slap in the face for Americans.

    He could say Shahed129.

    The new S-129 variant with SATCOM link is basically a MQ-1 in terms of overall parameters. It can even be said that the S-129 is the better engineered design. So it would make no sense to go for a MQ-1 copy.

    Copying MQ-1 makes no sense ... He means S-129 for sure.

    50 armed drones from Khuzestan, Fars, Bushehr and Hormozgan provinces reached the designated area in the Faroor koochak island simultaneously and destroyed the targets with high precision.

    General Hajizadeh described the mission planning for simultaneous flight of these drones over a small geographic area as the dawn of a new air power in Iran.

    This is too cool!!

    Any word on if Iran is linking drones to fly in formation (sharing data with one another) and delivering coordinated bombing runs? Or was this essentially that?

    Apparently Recent IRGC exercises in the Persian gulf is an answer to new plots from some regional Arab countries.

    for sure, IRGC is working on UAVs a lot

    well they said over 50 drones in 1000 km so we must have some data sharing via satellite but as you know IRGC dose not say what capabilities they have.

    this is really huge. in a war case scenario this swarm of 50 stealth drones could cripple enemy air defence and pave the way for AF to take out hard targets with qassed type bombs. well done IRGC.
