The combination of a modern stealth system and profound acceleration capabilities enables the 4-kg "Sarallah Drone” to duck missiles, developer Hassan Akbari Layeq told FNA.
Another feature that protects the drone from targeting is its flight altitude. The "Sarallah Drone” can rise as high as 8,000 meters, DefenseWorld.net says.
The drone can accomplish a one hour-long flight at the speed of 160 km/h. However, the safety system limits the flight to 40 minutes, if activated.
Iran has been placing high emphasis on UAV development and has made several remarkable achievements. Its drones can move at supersonic speeds, carry air-to-surface missiles, accomplish surveillance, reconnaissance, offensive and defensive missions, and participate in environment monitoring operations, FNA conveys.
