    The first picture is quite certainly some kind of wing or control surface.

    I was really hoping for a bigger punch for the Sadid but It did the job. With regards to precision, this bomb is really good for minimizing civilian casualties as it doesn't seem to have a very large explosion. What I'm curious about is whether or not the sadid has the weight to punch through the top of a tank.

    They can make a variant with a shaped charge (HEAT) warhead for the anti-armor roll if they have not done so already!

    Hello dude
    What is your speculation about wight of Sadid ????
    I remember 35 kg from forgotten source in net but explosions were bigger than 35 kg guided bomb and probably different bombs used for different target
    also shahed 129 carry 8 sadid bomb base on below videos



    and that mean 8*35 kg(at least for each Sadid) = 280 kg
    but I think Sadid is weight around 50kg
    which mean
    8*50 = 400 kg lift weight for Shahed 129

    any opinion ???????

    I found this video in YouTube about exact weight of Sadid bomb


    Edit : so weight lift of Shahed129 is just 280 kg :(

    what's so sad about it , Shahed 129 is in class of MQ-1 Reaper and as it use Rotax 914 if you look at reaper spec you'll see that the spec for that uav is also as such
    508 kg for fuel and armament

    Hardpoints:
    2 and provisions to carry combinations of:
    another successful drone in this class is IAI Heron that also use Rotax 914 and carry up to 250kg of ordnance
    So as you see if your calculation is correct Shahed-129 carry twice weapon as MQ-1 and equal to Heron

    The explosions are in line with the 20-25kg HE-frag warhead of the Sadid PGM.

    I already said that this destructive power is sufficient for 70-80% of any potential target in a war.

    I'm really glad to see Shahed-129 Proving itself in real life scenarios, along with Sadid. I never had my doubts but its always good to see its effectiveness, their is alot of equipment made in Iran but we aren't able to see them at work.
