'Sofreh Mahi': The Radar Evading UAV from Iran

Lieutenant Commander of the Iranian Army Air Force General Aziz Nasirzadeh said on Sunday that the prototype of the aircraft named 'Sofreh Mahi'(flatfish) which staged a "successful flight" passed all radar-evading tests. Iran in June successfully tested a home-made radar-evading Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) with bombing capabilities. The UAV 'Sofreh Mahi'(flatfish) has been designed and manufactured for reconnaissance and bombing missions, considering its radar-evading capability, the official said. Iran has conducted a successful test of its first domestically developed radar-evading aircraft, a senior military official said.

In the backdrop of nuclear fuel enrichment impasse between Iran and USA and the West’s suspicion over Iran’s motive this can be seen as the next in the series of the Country’s effort to add to its leverage on negotiations. Iran often makes announcements of progress in its military capabilities, in an apparent attempt to show its readiness to respond to any military attack.

On Saturday, it officially started production of two new missiles, state media said, three days after it launched a rocket which can carry a satellite.

During the Feb. 1-11 period,
Iran marks the 31st anniversary of the Islamic revolution that toppled the U.S.-backed shah.
