The video shows the drone’s launch from a slingshot apparatus, which looks like it can be mounted onboard almost any flatbed truck or flat ground surface, along with rendered and live video footage of its flight, and its rapid descent toward and destruction of its target at a test range.

The UAV system boasts several advantages, according to designers, including undetectable launch, high accuracy, silent propulsion, and simple design.

Cruising at speeds of 80-130 km per hour, the drone can remain airborne for up to 30 minutes and carry a payload of up to three kilograms.

In February, Kalashnikov Concern representatives said that the kamikaze drone had completed trials and was ready for operational use.

This is a Civilized Place for Public Discussion

Please treat this discussion with the same respect you would a public park. We, too, are a shared community resource — a place to share skills, knowledge and interests through ongoing conversation.

These are not hard and fast rules, merely guidelines to aid the human judgment of our community and keep this a clean and well-lighted place for civilized public discourse.

Improve the Discussion

Help us make this a great place for discussion by always working to improve the discussion in some way, however small. If you are not sure your post adds to the conversation, think over what you want to say and try again later.

The topics discussed here matter to us, and we want you to act as if they matter to you, too. Be respectful of the topics and the people discussing them, even if you disagree with some of what is being said.

Be Agreeable, Even When You Disagree

You may wish to respond to something by disagreeing with it. That’s fine. But remember to criticize ideas, not people. Please avoid:

  • Name-calling
  • Ad hominem attacks
  • Responding to a post’s tone instead of its actual content
  • Knee-jerk contradiction

Instead, provide reasoned counter-arguments that improve the conversation.

Any way, as soon they say the system is unbeatable, no matter the country it comes from, be sure it is not!
