The Oryx Handbook of Iranian Drones


The goal of this list is to comprehensively catalogue Iran's past and current inventory of unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) and their armament. In an effort to streamline the list and avoid unnecessary confusion, this list only includes military drones associated with Iran's defence industry or military-grade UAVs with at least some chance of entering service.

Notes:

- If several configurations of a drone with one designation are known, they are added as such.

- The part within the apostrophes refers to other designations or an unofficial designation.

- UAVs that did not enter service or have yet to enter service are located in the prototype category.

- When a type is dual-capable, it is added in both respective categories.

- Dubious claims are referred to as ''claimed to be capable''.

- The foreign service section of this handbook only includes UAVs confirmed to be in service with a state or non-state actor other than Iran, not those operated by Iranian personnel inside Syria or elsewhere.

Although a great deal of effort has been put into ensuring the accuracy of this list, any updates or corrections to this list are most welcome.
