Iran has unveiled a new light-weight, long-range stealth unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) capable of flying at a maximum altitude of 10, 000 feet.

The drone was put on show on Wednesday at an expo showcasing the latest achievements by the Iranian Aviation & Space Industries Association.

Hamed Sa’eedi, an official with the association, said that, with a total weight of less than 20 kilograms and a flight time of over 15 hours, the drone can conduct such non-military missions as those for mapping, filming and

image-collecting.

He said that Iran plans to export the drone to different countries.

Earlier this month, Iran’s Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) unveiled a new attack drone, the Saegheh (Thunderbolt), by reverse-engineering a US Central Intelligence Agency RQ-170 Sentinel drone that had been captured in December 2011.

In recent years, Iran has made major breakthroughs in its defense sector and attained self-sufficiency in producing important military equipment and systems

.

The Islamic Republic maintains that its military might poses no threat to other countries, stating that its defense doctrine is merely based on deterrence.
