Looks cool!!!
…Also, surprisingly fake!
I’m bummed.
I was hoping that Iran’s leaders
were getting some
alien anal probes
in exchange for the nifty flying
saucer technology. 
After all, Iran has said publicly
that it shot down several
in 2009. Really.
It turns out that the actual device looks like this

From FARS News:  TEHRAN (FNA)- Iran unveiled a home-made unmanned flying saucer as well as a light sports aircraft in an exhibition of strategic technologies.  The unmanned flying saucer, named “Zohal”, was unveiled in a ceremony attended by Supreme Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyed Ali Khamenei.  Zohal, designed and developed jointly by Farnas Aerospace Company and Iranian Aviation and Space Industries Association (IASIA), can be used for various missions, specially for aerial imaging. The flying machine is equipped with an auto-pilot system, GPS (Global Positioning System) and two separate imaging systems with full HD 10 mega-pixel picture quality and is able to take and send images simultaneously. via
