Iran’s New Drone Swarm Shahed-136

Iran has called these types of drones a “suicide drone,” or kamikaze drone. This means they fly into a target and self-destruct. These types of drones have been mentioned before but have not been shown in such close-up detail.

This was the first time this type of drone was mentioned in overseas deployment. Prior to this, Iran had built kamikaze drones, but this specific type had not been seen in public military drills.
