Ababil 3 from Iran, produced by Iran Aircraft Manufacturing Industrial Company (HESA)


Ababil-3 is a complete redesign of Ababil, with an improved airframe dedicated to surveillance, better equipment, and the ability to fly for longer periods of time. Some sources refer to Ababil-3 as Ababil-III. Ababil-3 is believed to be based on South Africa’s Denel Dynamics Seeker, specifically his Seeker-2D model. It is known to have been more widely exported than Ababil-2, and production began by 2008, with certain parts manufactured by 2006. Ababil-3 has a cylindrical fuselage with wings attached to the top and his H-shaped twin booms attached to the ends of the fuselage. The wing design is rectangular, tapering towards the tip of the wing when it is halved in length. Ababil-3 has a wingspan of about 7 meters, while Ababil-2 has a wingspan of 3 meters. Equipped with an engine made by Germany’s Limbach. Other sources suggest that Ababil-3 is powered by a Chinese or Iranian L550 clone. Certain other components within Ababil-3 were sourced from Irish defense contractors. Analysis of the Ababil-3, which was shot down over ISIS-held territory in Iraq due to an apparent mechanical failure, revealed that it was made of composite materials. The powerplant had a cylinder head with a flat surface. It is unclear whether the engine was made in Iran or China. Overall, manufacturing was “very economical” and Ababil-3 was designed to be low cost. The Ababil-3 model that was shot down also had a number of defects, which may indicate that it was poorly manufactured or poorly handled in the field. Ababil-3 is based on an airstrip on the outskirts of Minab, a town near Bandar Abbas. Ababil-3 is also known to be based at Bandar Abbas International Airport. Ababil-3 is comparable to his RQ-2. Ababil-3 has a maximum airspeed of 200 km/h (120 mph), a range of 100 km (62 miles) round trip, and a service ceiling of 5,000 m. (16,000 feet). Durability is 4 hours. As of July 2019, an estimated 217 Ababil-3s have been manufactured. In 2014, Iran announced it had developed night vision capabilities for the Ababil-3. His previous Ababil variant was most effective during the day. As of 2020, Iran has an armed version of the Ababil-3 drone, which has been widely used in the Syrian civil war. The heterogeneity of Syrian National Army units makes it difficult to determine who operates or controls them. Ababil 3 crashed or crashed in Pakistani territory in July 2019.
