Iran’s president unveiled the country’s first domestically built unmanned long-range bomber.

Mahmoud Ahmadinejad on Sunday revealed the drone prototype, called Karar, on a state television broadcast, according to reports.

“The jet, as well as being an ambassador of death for the enemies of humanity, has a main message of peace and friendship,” Ahmadinejad reportedly said during the unveiling.

“The main message of Karar bomber is to prevent any kind of aggression and conflict” against the Islamic Republic, he said. 

The high-speed drone can carry two 250-pound bombs or a 500-pound precision missile, according to Iranian state television.

The unveiling comes a day after Iran began loading uranium into its Russian-built Bushehr nuclear reactor, ahead of the activation of the power plant.
