IRGC obtains AI-powered unmanned vessels

The Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) Navy has developed unmanned military vessels that use artificial intelligence (AI) for combat operations, a commander said.
IRGC Navy Commander Rear Admiral Alireza Tangsiri announced at a televised program on Monday night that his forces have obtained unmanned vessels equipped with artificial intelligence.
He noted that the AI-powered watercraft can be controlled for mass attacks together with several other unmanned vessels.
The commander also warned the neighboring countries that have allowed the Israeli regime to establish a foothold in the region that any harm to Iran will draw a retaliatory response.
The general further provided information on the missile capabilities of the IRGC Navy’s vessels and speedboats, noting that the ‘Tareq’ boats can launch missiles with a range of 180 kilometers while moving at a speed of 60 knots.
He also noted that the ‘Mahdavi’ logistical combat warship has been furnished with cruise missiles with a range of 300 to 750 kilometers, saying the vessel also carries five helicopters, suicide drones with a range of 1,300 kilometers, and ‘Sepehr-7’ drones that have a flight endurance of eight hours and a range of 200 kilometers.
