Iran Unveils Its First UAV Bomber

Slashdot | Iran Unveils Its First UAV Bomber:

'Iranian president Mahmoud Ahmadinejad unveiled today the first UAV bomber produced by Iran. The drone, named Karrar (farsi for Striker) can carry various types of bombs. It can reach up to 900 km/h in speed and has a range of 1000 kilometers (620 miles). The Iranian president mentions that 'Karrar is a symbol of the progress of defence technology in Iran.''
It looks remarkably like an old German V1!

There is actually a series tie-in here. In Suki IV: Finally A Vacation, John and Suki get caught up as contractors in a war with Iran. John's son, Tag, is in the war as a soldier too.  The fan fiction that both Sarah and I wrote relates back to the war with Iran.  No connection to the new series, yet.
