They included a wide-body and heavy Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) named “Gaza” that can be employed in various combat, surveillance and reconnaissance missions.

It can also be used in search and rescue operations and relief efforts after natural disasters and accidents.

With a flight endurance of 35 hours and operational range of 2,000 kilometers, the drone is capable of carrying 13 bombs and 500 kilograms of equipment.

After joining the IRCG Aerospace Force’s drone fleet, it will improve the force’s intelligence dominance and capability to counter enemy threats.

The head of the Revolutionary Guards, Major General Hossein Salami, said the new drone was named “Gaza” in honour “of those in that land who stand today against the invasion and aggression of the Zionists of Israel”.
