    the new drill is unique in many ways in the world, like it demonstrates a scenario of swarm attack on enemy positions with combination of stealth and regular drones with participation of more than 50 drones which bombed the targets 1300km far away from their air bases.
    this drill showed that iran is the biggest user of drones in ME and western asia. also it showed that iran already mass produced it's jet powered stealth drone named shahed-191 and could project it's power using them.
    the drone types used in this drill are s-129, s-191 and s-121.

    First it must be able to carry a radar. Akinci is a tech demonstrator i guess

    We have already made Mohajer drone capable of firing at enemy aircraft by mounting shoulder launched airdefence system on the drone.
    Watch below :

    Mohajer family 1,2,3,4,5,6 are not present in this drone exercise conducted by IRGC.

    Too small, although nice effort. Congrats
    Yeah it can be very very very useful against the Helicopters and drones in Persian Gulf.

    What's "lol" about it exactly? I assume you know jack all about such topics.
    Coverting such systems to be used as air to air system on such small UAV's is a very difficult task.

    it's not realistic to assume that a UAV can engage with a manned fighter jet, at least not now.

    its an big UCAV what is the size on that

    Iran and Turkey have two different UAV doctors IRGC going for stealth way to soon and they are ahead for US and Israel tech that IRGC have.

    I agree regarding Israel since they don't even have a stealth UCAV but we are not ahead of US.
    They simply have too much funding in such things and have big projects.

    They are years ahead of other nation in overall UAV tech.


    We are definitely amongst the top uav powers however.

    Imagine up to 50 Mohajer drones with enhanced engine flying in 15 Km height. And an squadron of F-14s right behind them with the newly upgraded radar which can detect targets at a distance of almost 650 Km!!!. Drones have low RCS, so drones can be used along with strong fighter jets such as F-14s. They can protect Tomcats against stealth jets which we know Tomcats cannot deter.
