Saeghe (Thunderbolt) is a simple Iranian target drone.

Performance[edit]

Saeghe is a delta wing narrow pointed fuselage target drone. Control surfaces are located on the horizontal stabilizers. The drone uses a pusher-configuration engine which generates a power of 25hp which makes it able to endure for 45 minutes.[2] Some say it is MADO 275cc engine.[3]

It comes in two versions. The first one which only has radio command guidance system and the other one which has GPS guidance and IR emissions. Both versions are launched via a booster and are recovered by parachute.[4]
