TV just showed it, I couldn't record it but I will post pics as soon as they are out.
It's relatively big (it shows the reporter and commander standing besides it) and a new model was also among them (a little bit larger than the S-129 that was displayed last year and also seemed to come with a retractable landing gear). They can carry 8 Sadid missiles, 24h flight endurance and it will be massively used in borders to fight drug trafficking and other smugglings.

Edit: Thanks Soheil :)
