Iran unveiled on Thursday a new drone, dubbed the Epic, capable of carrying out both surveillance and attack missions, the Mehr news agency reported.

Defense Minister General Ahmad Vahidi was quoted as saying the Epic, which can fly at high altitudes, is a "stealth aircraft that cannot be detected by enemies."

On April 18, Iran made public three other models,

The Throne, also a stealth model, has a long range and is equipped with air-to-air missiles, said General Amir-Farzad Esmaili, commander of anti-aircraft operations.

Esmaili said Iran had already produced and used dozens of them.

The Hazem-3 (Solid) and Mohajer-B (Migrator) are "tactical and combat" models and also capable of reconnaissance, the general said.

GabbyMarch14, you have a partner in harrier, another top achieving graduate of the Military Academy of West Point and an authority on intelligence matters. I am surprised you still find the time to enlighten us through the pages of Naharnet! How humble of you.

maybe if they actually cared about their PEOPLE, people would sit up and take notice. all the so called religious leaders care about is resurrecting the persian empire, no matter the cost. and they used gullible idiotic people to make israel the enemy to garner support. it used to be that the us was the great satan--but israel seems to be much more emotional than the us so they are going with that.

if it is a drone why it has a glass cockpit?

Thumb jabal10452 10 May 2013, 14:36

Very relevant question, delta. Why add the drag of a glass cockpit if the drone is unmanned?

They are so inventive and creative in Iran that they had to copy the American F-14 TOMCAT model of the 80's ... they want to beat the USA and they still cant copy well a 30yrs old plane model

Actually - nothing wrong in using plastic-based composite materials in the building of drones. They are lighter and have much lower radar signature.

But that does indeed look like a model. It is not aerodynamically sound for a small plane. It is made to look like the US stealth fighter. Drones should have wide wing spans.
