Moscow, Aug 27, IRNA - The Ministry of Defense showcased one of its newest drones, “Mobin”, at the Russian Air Show.

Russian 2019 MAKS Aerospace Exhibition, with the participation of Iran and 16 other nations opened in Russia on Thursday at the Zhukovsky Aerospace Complex in eastern Moscow for five days.

Hours ago some media in Iran had mistakenly stated that the newest cruise missile made by the Islamic Republic of Iran, “Mobin”, was displayed at the Russian International Aerospace Exhibition (MAKS 2019).

The Ministry of Defense of the Islamic Republic of Iran presented the Mobin Military UAV as one of its newest products at this exhibition.

The UAV, which is three meters long and weighs 670 kilograms, can carry up to 120 kilograms of mission equipment.

According to information provided by Iran's booth at the Russian Military Exhibition, Mobin can fly up to 6,000 feet altitude and fly continuously with the speed of 900 kilometers per hour for up to 45 minutes.

Due to its ability to fly at low altitude and very low radar cross section, this Iranian UAV is also capable of radar evasion.

Deputy Defense Minister and head of the Islamic Republic of Iran's Aerospace Space Industry Organization Abdolkarim Banitorofi arrived in Moscow on Sunday to attend Russia International Aerospace Exhibition.

During his visit to the Russian Aerospace Exhibition, Brigadier General Abdul Banitorofi will also meet with his counterparts from Russia and other countries.
