The Mohajer-10 has a payload of up to 300 kilograms (660 pounds) of cargo, double that of the previous model, allowing it to carry “all kinds of bombs and ammunitions”.

This is twice the weight and flight time of the ‘Mohajer-6’, which can carry 150 kilograms of weapons and fly for 12 hours. The previous model also had a lower flight altitude of 5,400 metres, and a speed of 200 kilometers per hour.

The unveiling comes a day after Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu blamed Iran for financing and encouraging the shooting attack on Israelis in Hebron in the occupied West, along with other recent attacks against Israelis.
