Iran has developed a new attack drone for Russia's war in Ukraine and appears close to providing Moscow with surface-to-surface missiles, an informed security source has claimed, APA reports citing Sky News.

The Shahed-107 was described as an "explosive and reconnaissance" unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV), possibly fitted with technology to seek out high-value battlefield targets such as British and American multiple-launch rocket systems used by Ukrainian forces.

The source told Sky News "a few units" of the specially-designed drone may have been offered to Russia in a deal estimated to be worth more than $2m.

This reflects "the significant force design work Iran is engaged in to support Russia's interests regarding Ukraine", the source said.

Ukraine and its western allies have previously accused Tehran of supplying Moscow with hundreds of one-way attack drones known as the Shahed-131 and Shahed-136 - dubbed "suicide drones" because they fly into targets and explode on impact.
