The concepts discussed are interesting in that they are a complete reversal in thought from the 'multi-role' movement in the 70s-80s as a way to save on procurement & maintenance costs as well as overall numbers.

Here the thought of buying a new fighter every 8 years or so and retiring them after 15-16 before rebuild and modernization costs burden the project, is Intriguing; and a throwback to bygone days. It sounds like a way of staying ahead of the technology curve if they can convince budget holders that it'll work.

Photos from ceremony of transferring to IRGC Navy 188 drones, helicopters etc. It seems there are both new and overhauled\upgraded vehicles.
Among them IRGC Navy recieved 15 UCAVs Mohajer-6.

The photos are quite impressive and funny enough, made by a drone

And one has deserves a special post!
Probable Kamikaze drones. Some have an optical sight.
These UAS normally have a ground control truck. So maybe the guidance is still from the shore.

Seems that loitering munitions and UAV's are the propaganda way to go in the Armenia and Azerbeijan conflict..
Multiple SA-8's targeted (but also SA-8 decoys, as the second image).

It still surprises me that you see the search radar turning but the SA-8 is not engaging the loitering munitions..Is it the slow speed?

And/or the size, LMs are pretty small. Something like a radar controlled AAA or CRAM type would have an easier time I think

Stay tuned for the largest export (and likely domestic) arms expo in China. Will translate and report the event and showcased weapons when found.

Finally visual evidence of the H-6N carrying the CH-AS-X-13 ALBM.
It definitely looks like a HGV warhead tho.
