IRGC Displays New Suicide Drone

TEHRAN (Tasnim) – The Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) Ground Force unveiled a new homegrown drone used for suicide operations.

The unmanned aerial vehicle, dubbed Me’raj-504, was put on display at an exhibition held by the IRGC in Tehran on Sunday.

The suicide drone, manufactured by the IRGC Ground Force experts, can carry a payload of 2.5 kilograms of explosives within a range of 100 kilometers.

Known as an upgraded version of Me’raj-214, the new aircraft is propelled by a powerful piston engine.

The suicide drone, used as a target for air defense systems, has been manufactured at a low cost and is currently in service.

On Saturday, the IRGC unveiled two cavernous military bases accommodating missiles and unmanned aerial vehicles.

The subterranean bases accommodate ground-to-ground missile systems with new advanced equipment as well as assault drones capable of penetrating into the enemy’s radar and air defense networks.

The new base is furnished with homegrown drones with a range of 2,000 kilometers, twin missile launch platforms, and platforms for the launch of multiple drones.
