The mass production of the Mohajer-6 UCAV (Unmanned Combat Aerial Vehicle) equipped with Qaem smart guided bomb was inaugurated during a ceremony on Monday February 5, 2018, attended by the Iran’s Defense Minister Brigadier General Amir Hatami.

According to the Iranian defense industry, the Mohajer 6 is a new generation of combat drone offering different capabilities. It can fulfill needs of long endurance missions; it has extreme flexibility in the battlefield and unique flying capabilities. It also has the capability to carry out surveillance, reconnaissance and combat missions within a wide operational range and wingspan with a high precision. The Mohajer 6 will be used by the Iranian armed forces to target terrorists with its Qaem precision-guided bombs.

The Mohajer-6 is the first combat UAV from the Mohajer family that is armed with a guided weapon system and is bigger than the other types of Mohajer family. The Iranian Mohajer-4 UAV have been successfully used during conflicts in Syria and Iraq. The Mohajer-6 can fly to a maximum distance of 3,000 km. It can be also armed with two guided missiles able to engage low-altitude air targets.

The Mohajer-6 is equipped with electro/optical day/night detection system and has the capacity to be fully autonomous for take-off and landing operations thanks to the use of electro-avionic subsystems.

The Qaem is a precision-guided bombs that uses semi-active laser guidance to strike a designated target with greater accuracy than an unguided bomb. These type of bomb use on-board electronics to track targets that are designated by laser, typically in the infrared spectrum, and adjust their glide path to precisely strike the target. Since the weapon is tracking a light signature, not the object itself, the target must be illuminated from a separate source, either by ground forces, by a pod on the attacking aircraft, or by a separate support aircraft.
