    Re: Iran unveils long-distance bomber drone



    Israel's Eitan strategic drone (SUAV). Eitan is the second largest UAV in the world and is designed for long-range missions. It has a large payload capacity with a takeoff weight of five tons. It can remain airborne for 24 hours at an altitude of over 41,000 feet with ranges exceeding 1000 km. The craft is capable of multi-platform operations. Eitan has an open architecture design which allows the introduction of new systems and payloads without major platform modifications.



    Above is an Eitan with a gondola fairing underneath which allows the rapid introduction of different mission packages. The cylinder shaped appendage beneath the nose is an electro-optical sensor which provides an unobstructed hemispherical view for thermal imaging. The IAF Eitan SUAV fleet is directed by 210 Squadron operating from Tel Nof Air Force base.

    This Iranian UAV looks like a P.O.S.

    Just sayin...
    "There is nothing which I dread so much as a division of the republic into two great parties, each arranged under its leader, and concerting measures in opposition to each other. This, in my humble apprehension, it to be dreaded as the greatest political evil under our Constitution." —John Adams

    It appears to be primitive craft without ECM and full-spectrum sensor capabilities. I also strongly doubt that it has satellite up/down links like US and Israeli drones. Reminds me of a dandied-up Scud.

    Maybe you'd like to link even farther back in history to flying carpets, and relate that to the drone.
