I don’t know what to make of this device. Apparently, it’s a defensive and deterrent weapon, but Ahmadinejad said that the unmanned aircraft was an:
“Ambassador of death for the enemies of humanity, [that] has a main message of peace and friendship.”
In other words, “you’re either with us, or you’re against us, and if you’re against us, we’re gonna killya.” Didn’t W say something like that at one point in time?
Anyway, they didn’t release any specs on the craft, so as far as I know, it’ll only work against people that have no radio signal jamming capabilities and no anti-aircraft capabilities either.
The goal of the aircraft is to “keep the enemy paralyzed in its bases,” he said, adding that the jet is for deterrence and defensive purposes.
The president championed the country’s military self-sufficiency program and said it will continue “until the enemies of humanity lose hope of ever attacking the Iranian nation.”
The 4-meter-long unmanned plane, dubbed the Karrar, or striker, in Farsi, was inaugurated on the national day for the country’s defense industry in a ceremony aired live on state TV.
