Analysis of the drone wing elements makes it clear that the Armed Forces of Ukraine destroyed the Iranian UAV for the first time. This was namely a Shahed-136 long-range kamikaze UAV.
At the end of 2021, Iran demonstrated the multiple launch possibility of these loitering munitions from a launcher disguised as a cargo car container.
There are no exact characteristics of the Iranian Shahed-136 loitering munition, however, the Western countries assume that their effective range can reach up to 2 thousand km.
Previously, the Commander of the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps confirmed that Iran was supplying weapons to the Russian Federation.
