Drone bomber: Drones being used to drop bombs in Iraq and Syria (Iraqi forces pictured)
Depraved Daesh has created an improvised explosive device (IED) which could even be launched by a rifle, according to an arms monitoring group.
ISIS has proved to be capable of creating primitive weapons on the battlefield, even making their own canons.
But they have also showed progression in their ranks with technology, especially after it was reported they were testing driverless cars.
Conflict Armament Research (CAR) said the militant group was "promoting the development of ‘own-brand' weapons" to provide its insurgents with otherwise unavailable armaments.
CAR said: “The (IED) can be thrown, launched from an improvised rifle attachment, or in its most recent phases of development, dropped from a commercial, off-the-shelf unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) or drone.”
Iraqi forces have been using bomb dropping drones since at least March of this year.

The findings suggested ISIS was centrally managing the design and production of improvised weapons with the ability to test its systems on the field and refine them as well as use new technologies such as drones.
The report said the jihadi terror cult was using the battle for Mosul to field-test different types of ordnance, an important step in any weapons research and development programme.
It stated: ”Evidence of research and development by IS forces, compiled by CAR since 2014, suggests that such adaptations are likely to continue and will result in further UAV innovations in the near future, potentially for use in theatres other than Iraq."

In Mosul, ISIS has been known to booby-trap houses and surround villages with tens of thousands of mines.
They have even been reported to fit bombs to puppies in Syria.
The CAR findings of the report were released following visits to Mosul in November, February and March.
ISIS in Raqqa – Killers developing home-made weapons to attack
Iraqi military and elite counter-terrorism forces launched a sweeping, US-backed offensive in October to retake the city, ISIS' last major urban stronghold in Iraq seized in a lightning offensive in 2014.
They have retaken most of Mosul, including its half east of the Tigris River, and surrounded the militants in its northwest quarter including the Old City, home to the Grand al-Nuri mosque where ISIS declared a "caliphate" over parts of Iraq and Syria.
CAR, which identifies and tracks arms and ammunition in war zones, reported in December that ISIS had been making weapons on a scale and sophistication matching national military forces and that it had standardised production across its realm.
