An upgraded version of Farpad hand-launched drone that was inducted into the Iranian Army’s Ground Forces, has electronic warfare capabilities.
“Farpad is equipped with autopilot and portable ground control station. The drone is also capable of participating in electronic warfare and is also capable of detecting targets via imaging,” IRNA quoted Brigadier General Kioumars Heydari as saying on Wednesday.
Heydari said Farpad will be operated in reconnaissance and border surveillance missions and other relevant operations, adding that the unmanned aerial vehicle will also be used in equipping mobile combat brigades, rapid reaction forces and intelligence units.
Last month, Iran showcased two versions of “Kian” drone, reportedly capable of swift tracking, identification, and for precision strikes on distant targets.
