The new UAV is equipped with a 50-kilogram warhead. The specifics were disclosed in an interview with the semi-official Tasnim news agency on Sunday by the organization’s leader, Ali Kouhestani.
Kouhestani claims that the Meraj-532 UAV can fly for three straight hours at a maximum altitude of 12,000 feet and has a phenomenal range of 450 kilometers.
The Iranian official claimed that the Meraj-532 simplicity of assembly and flight preparation is one of its primary strengths, making it ideal for quick response missions.
