Iran unveils homegrown drone 'Kian' with ALLEGED pinpoint accuracy

170 days ago, 2146 views
Iran unveiled an indigenously developed jet-propelled drone it said is capable of finding and attacking targets far from the country’s borders with precision.Dubbed the “Kian,” the unmanned aerial vehicle was designed, produced and tested by experts of the air force within about a year, Iran Air Defense Force commander Brigadier General Alireza Sabahifard said on Sunday, September 1.

The drone comes in two models capable of “surveillance and reconnaissance missions and continuous flight for precision missions,” state news agency IRNA quoted him as saying.

“This drone can undertake any drone missions we entrust it with … it can fly more than 1,000 km [620 miles] and find its target with precision,” he said.

The newly launched UAV can carry different munitions and can climb to an altitude of 5,000 meters (15,000 feet), according to state television.

“This unmanned aircraft is capable of hitting targets far from the country’s borders and undertaking air defense from the enemy’s territory,” said Sabahifard.

The unveiling comes at a time of rising tensions with the United States, which have escalated since last year when U.S. President Donald Trump withdrew from a 2015 nuclear deal with Iran and reimposed sanctions.

I knew it was going to happen. Didn’t think Iran would have the doomsday weapon so soon. Hope none of y’all made long term plans because we’re fucked.

the liar commander of #Iran Air Defense Force, Brig. Gen. Sabahi-Fard misrepresented a target drone as Loitering drone and falsely claimed it can fly thousands of kilometers and hit its target precisely. As a matter of fact, Kian is just a target drone for training.

Seems like the red would make them highly visible and tactically less valuable. Perhaps the red is just for the grand opening.
