Does Iran have communication satellites that can link up with UAVs SatCom ? I ask because Turkey was lacking in that area did not have enough transponders on existing satellites, so they launched TurkSat-4A, TurkSat-4B and going to launch TurkSat-5A this year.

Do you know how many of them are operating in Syria?
There shouldn't be more than a handful operating in Syria no more than 4 or 5 at max but the Shahed-129 is clearly not the only Iranian UAV operating in Syria

That said! Come on man, anyone with that information and an exact number is not likely to plaster it over the internet!
