The commander of Iran's Khatam-ol-Anbiya Air Defense Base announced Sunday the development of a new domestically-built UAV with bombing capabilities.

According to Fars news agency, Brigadier General Farzad Esmaeili said the Hazem UAV will have three models,  short-range, medium-range and long-range. The main purpose of the Hazem was reconnaissance missions but it could also carry a payload, the report said.

Iran frequently publicizes its military achievements, and in recent months has increased its focus on promoting claims of are advances in its domestically designed and produced weaponry, including drones. However, according to analysts including the United States Institute of Peace, Iran often exaggerates about its weapons designs.
