“The drone is said to have a 7,600 meter flight ceiling, and the ability to be armed with precision-guided air-to-surface missiles or anti-tank missiles.

The drone’s outward appearance seems to be in line with design concepts found in many Western high-tech drone designs, including a bulbous nose similar to that of the US Predator drone, presumably containing the UAV’s avionics.”  AMN

This thing was supposed to have been dropped as a project at the prototype stage in 2013.  Now it is back as an equipment to be acquired in some undisclosed number by the IRGC.  Some will argue that the Iranians are bluffing.  If so, it is a good bluff.

When combined with something like the Qader anti-ship missile this could be a formidable anti-ship weapon system.

I presume that the US Navy and DIA are paying attention to this.
