March 16, 2022 at 1:57 pm

The weapon, which can be controlled remotely, can be launched at a distance of 80 km from the target and destroy the entire tank

Switchblades are made by American Aerovirone and the larger version weighs about a kilo, so it is easy to carry and can be configured in 10 minutes. Designed to fly at a speed of 40 km / h in about 20 minutes, then there will be another 20 at the attack site. Its range is about 80 km / h, it falls as soon as the target is identified and it reaches a speed of about 115 km / h. For this he manages to slip like a machete towards his target, and then explodes the warship he is carrying with him.

Its control is managed by a tablet, but it can also operate automatically, thus giving its pilot a chance to escape before an attack can take place. Control by GPS takes place on an encrypted and unobstructed line.

The low price is about $ 6,000 per drone, making it a deadly tool that could cause huge losses to Putin’s military in the hands of the Ukrainian opposition.
