Designated as the Hemaseh in Farsi, meaning 'epic' in English, Iran's latest reconnaissance-combat drone was unveiled during a ceremony attended by Defense Minister Ahmad Vahidi.Brightly painted in the colors of Iran's national flag and sporting what looked to be two dummy missiles under its wings, the domestically built drone is said to possess stealth capabilities that would allow it to evade enemy radar.
