Iran drones appear to be armed with modified explosives designed to cause maximum damage to Ukrainian infrastructure.

According to a new investigative report obtained exclusively by CNN, Iran appears to be modifying the attack drones it provides to Russia.

So that the explosive warheads can cause the greatest damage on infrastructure targets inside Ukraine.

Iran has provided Russia with hundreds of drones to use in its war in Ukraine.

Many of which have been used to devastating effect.

Against Ukraine’s power grid and energy facilities.

During the freezing winter months, drone attacks and Russian missile barrages have left Ukrainian civilians across the country without heat, electricity, or running water.

Last month, the UK-based investigative organization examined an unexploded warhead from an Iranian Shahed-131 drone.

Which was discovered in the Southern Ukrainian region of Odesa in October 2022.

And investigated last month by the UK-based investigative organization Conflict Armament Research.

In collaboration with the Ukrainian military. CAR first informed CNN of its findings.

The composition of the warhead explains why Russia’s onslaught on Ukraine’s energy infrastructure has been so effective in recent months.

Analysts at the group believe the 2 feet long warheads were hastily modified.

Also, with poorly fitted layers of dozens of small metal fragments that scatter across a large radius on impact.

There are also 18 smaller “charges” around the circumference of the warhead.

Which ehen melted by the blast, it can pierce armor and produce a “360-degree” explosive effect.

The combination of these elements effectively increases the warhead’s ability to shred targets like power plants, distribution grids, transmission lines, and large, high-power transformers.

They also make repair efforts much more difficult.

“It’s as if they looked at the finished warhead and thought to themselves, ‘How can we make this even more destructive?'”

Damien Spleeters, one of the investigators, stated.
