Iranian Shahed 129 Drone over Damascus


The Aviationist has posted footage filmed in Syria, reportedly spotting an Iranian UAV, “Shahed 129”, over Damascus today. (The Aviationist, 10 April)

In September 2013, Iran unveiled a version of Shahed 129 modified to carry weapons, making it a lethal UAV, so-called Unmanned Combat Aerial vehicle (UCAV). However, the video today does not show the aircraft carrying any weapon.  In 2012, an Iranian Yasir UAV was also spotted over Damascus.

This could be a game changer if deployed in enough numbers...

Up until now everyone said Iran's UAVs were photoshoped hoax's. Also they say its based on an Israeili drone that was copied. Doesnt this imply that Iran has captured an Israeli drone? I mean you have to have something in your posession in order to clone it.

That's the UAV some ridiculed last September for the prototype displayed to the media missing a couple of pieces of hardware at the front of the sensor dome, as well as mistakenly asserting there was no proof of Iranian UAVs being employed in Syria.

Hate to say it but one such misinformed detraction occurred right here by another poster at Uskowi on Iran.

The Shahed-129 seen over Syria seems somewhat different with antenna on the top and an enlarged bulge

what ever the IRANIAN General tells you about the Nation military tools- you will have to believe and trust for one reason- Its Iranian military tools against the West in Syria and as you can see the RATS are holding on the ropes which justifies the pride on the Iranian military Officials .
