On November 7, Obretix, a defense observer on Twitter, released a satellite image revealing that at least one Iranian Mohajir-6 unmanned combat aerial vehicle (UCAV) was recently deployed in Syria.
The satellite image shows the advanced combat drone and its control station parked in the Hama airbase in central Syria.

The Mohajer-6 has full intelligence, surveillance, target acquisition, and reconnaissance (ISTAR) capabilities. The UCAV can carry a multispectral surveillance payload as well as up to two Qaem electro-optical guided munitions.
The UCAV was spotted on November 7 conducting a reconnaissance mission over the northern Lattakia countryside. A photo of the Iranian combat drone over the region was released by Iba’a, the news network of al-Qaeda-affiliated Hay’at Tahrir al-Sham (HTS).
