A new development unfolded for Iran’s drone program, as its Army received more than 200 new strategic drones equipped with strike capabilities and electronic warfare systems.

State media Islamic Republic News Agency (IRNA) reported Thursday that the Iranian Army received “more than 200 long-range strategic” unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) from Defense Minister Mohammad-Reza Ashtiani as part of the country’s effort to enhance its combat readiness.

IRNA said these drones were initially designed and intended to perform various combat missions, such as “surveillance, radar evasion, detection, interception, and combat, among other things.”

Moreover, modifications to these UAVs will enable its forces to conduct strike missions, utilizing them as a platform for lethal munitions, including air-to-air and air-to-surface missiles, standoff, and smart bombs, as well as electronic warfare systems capable of disrupting or disabling enemy communications on the battlefield.
