Iran prepares drone
Iran’s Revolutionary Guard has built a new attack drone, similar to a US drone captured five years ago, according to state media. The semi-official Tasnim news agency reported yesterday that the Saegheh drone was built by the Guard’s aerospace division and is similar to the RQ-170 Sentinel spy drone. The report did not elaborate on the new drone’s range. Iran claimed to have shot down an RQ-170 drone in December 2011 and broadcast footage of the recovered aircraft.
