Inside the Iranian IRGC's Secretive Drone Unit

(Jerusalem Post) Seth J. Frantzman - Col. Akbar Karimloo, head of the Iranian Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps drone unit, spoke in a recent interview about its new "stealth" drones capable of waging war across the region. He said the drones had been tested in operations against Kurdish resistance groups. Iran has built long distance attack drones that behave like cruise missiles. It used 25 drones and cruise missiles in an attack on Saudi Arabia in September last year. Iran has harassed U.S. ships with drones in the Persian Gulf and it has delivered them to Hizbullah and Syria. In February 2018, Iran flew a drone into Israel from the T-4 base in Syria. Karimloo has spoken about a new "Fotros" stealth drone that can fly up to 2,000 km., meaning it can strike Israel.
