Although Iran and Russia have consistently denied the use of Iranian built Shahed-136 kamikaze drones, these drones (Russian: Geran-2) became a notorious component of Russia's attacks on Urkaine's energy infrastructure on 17 October 2022. Their efficacy has been questioned widely in successfully hitting targets and are predominately used as a weapon to terrorise civillians as they omit a specific buzzing noise right before they hit their target.
