The smart Qa'em precision bomb is said to be able to destroy different fixed and mobile targets in day and nigh missions and can infiltrate various types of installations and facilities. The new drone is able to conduct different reconnaissance, patrolling and combat missions in distanced areas and enjoys high flight endurance. It will be delivered to the IRGC Ground Forces.

In 2014, Commander of the IRGC Aerospace Force Brigadier General Amir Ali Hajizadeh already underlined the country's capabilities in building different types of Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs), adding that the range of Iran-made drones has increased to 3,000km, a major step in the self-sufficiency of local defense industries.

The Islamic Republic has so far unveiled various domestically produced drones, including Ababil, Fotros, Hazem, Karrar (long range attack drone), Mohajer, Sarir, Shahed 129, Yasir and Zohal.
