What might we know about this new drone? Must we depend entirely upon Iranian claims? Or could we all get a glimpse of it's capabilities beyond the puffery? We might, but then, for reasons that are hard to fathom, we might not be allowed to know. The photo of the 'killer' drone shows it flying away, so that the intake for it's propulsion is masked. In Arab News today a photo was published showing a factory floor, with a bright red, not grey, drone in the fore-front. It had a clearly sub-sonic intake for the engine. Way in back was another drone, a grey one like the one in the photo on this page. It is near head on, and it shows a major difference between the red drone. It's air intake is round, with a shock cone in it. Clearly a super-sonic aircraft. Speed, increases the problem and reduces the time during which defense systems may respond. it appears that Iran does not want us to know the real capabilities of their system or the publicity photo would not be positioned to hide the shock cone intake. Clearly this observation causes some concern with censors. Not just Iranian censors.
