Iran secretly handed over improved strike drones to Russia – as reported
Recall recently it became known that Iran secretly imported into Russia attack drones with increased range. There is information that Russia has purchased and received 18 attack drones of a new type – 6 Mohajer-6, as well as 12 Shahed 191 and 129.
It was reported that, unlike the more well-known Shahed 131 and 136 drones, which the Russian Federation regularly uses against Ukraine, the new models are attack UAVs, and not loitering ammunition. These drones are capable of launching air-to-ground missiles and dropping bombs.
