Iran mans up with super-fantastic mega #Drones – an annotated graphic

Who can be bothered with all that getting dressed up and going outside to fight, getting sand in your boots and the sun in your eyes?  Let’s have this war in our pyjamas instead – we’ll get our drones to talk to your drones, m’kay?

Introducing the Fotros, Iran’s new reconnaisance and combat drone, which Tehran is proudly calling the biggest drone yet to be developed in the Islamic Republic. With a range of 2,000km, Fotros will be capable of covering much of the Middle East, including Israel. Shalom!

The detail that tickled us most about this graphic concerns the “Laser designator: for fire-and-forget missiles”. Surely that epithet only applies to the person firing the missile? We’re pretty sure the person on the receiving end won’t be forgetting it in a hurry.

Naturally, E&T news reported on this Iran drones story a few days ago, should you be desirous of more drone detail. If you like all things drone, you could do worse than search “drones” on the E&T website for a plethora of drone news and features.
