Sent to me by a reader of the blog, this image (that as far as I know was originally posted by the Iranian site Mashreghnews.ir) is one the few available on the Internet of what should be a Mohajer-3 drone.
Also known as the “Dorna”, Iran’s Mohajer-3 seems to be quite similar to the Mohajer-2. It is a equipped with a forward facing camera, mounted in the front of the fuselage and is believed to be able to carry TV or FLIR cameras in a new payload bay. It carries also a line-scanner that, according to some Iranian websites, is capable of a 1-meter resolution at an altitude of 5 km.
