Thread for general discussion of Iranian drones.

Iran Haunted vultures hostile drones fair, RQ-170, MQ-1B, Hermes 200, MQ-4C
Quote:Commander of the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC سپاه پاسداران انقلاب اسلامي ايران) Aerospace Force Brigadier General Amir Ali Hajizadeh سرتيپ امير علي حاجي زاده highlighted Iran’s progress in defense industries and said the Islamic Republic is the most powerful country in the region in the field of missiles.

“Today, forty years after the Islamic Revolution, we have seen tremendous progress in various areas, especially the unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs),” Brigadier General Hajizadeh told reporters in Tehran on Saturday.

The Islamic Republic of Iran is among the top five countries in the world that manufacture drones, the commander added.

They already showed 2-3 generations (including S-129D with satcom), I'm not sure anything major is imminent in terms of next gen of s-129.

As for sofreh mahi, I have a feeling they abandoned that in favour of saeqeh/simorgh after they gained access to the RQ-170.
A blog [] published a good overview of the different Iranian drones known to the public. Some are not IRGC drones but for simplicity I will add the list here in the separate categories and add photos for each type in time.

I've heard the Samad 1 version of the Shahed 129 drone acts as a relay, allowing Iran to control other drones over large distances.
