On November 17, 2022, Channel 3 (Iran) aired a documentary about Iran's drone industry. An unidentified IRGC member said that Iran has drones with a range of 3,000 kilometers and that are highly accurate. He also said that if there is ever a situation in which hostile warships are permanently deployed in the Persian Gulf, Iran would destroy all the American bases in the region. He explained that Iran would "leave no trace" of them in the region and that Iran would be able to do this with less than 30% of its capabilities. The documentary also featured pioneers of Iran's drone industry, as well as current IRGC drone teams.

IRGC officer: "We have UAVs with a range of 3,000 kilometers. These are precision UAVs with a circular error probability of one meter.

Interviewer: "If a day comes when the Islamic Republic faces a situation where warships are deployed permanently outside of the Persian Gulf, and they wish to attack the Islamic Republic of Iran, or if an aircraft carrier wishes to launch its planes - what will our UAV systems do? Please elaborate."

Officer: "By using no more than 30% of our capabilities, we will plow all of the bases of the [Global] Arrogance in the region. In the words of our dear General Hajizadeh, we will leave no trace of them in the region."
