Russian military proposed the drone in the form of an owl (5 photos)

Military aircraft of many countries are actively developing and developing unmanned aerial vehicles. Russia is also not far behind. At the Army-2019 exhibition, the ERA technopark of the Ministry of Defense presented a rather original reconnaissance drone. An unusual model made in the form of a polar owl. The developers assure that the similarity with this bird makes their device less noticeable. A flying device weighs five kilograms. The gadget itself clarifies the coordinates of the target, highlighting it for artillery and aviation with a special laser target designation system. The owl is equipped with a silent electric motor. It can be in the air for about 40 minutes. But our military did not stop there. They created another drone in the form of a falcon. It was equipped with a speaker. The development is designed to scare away birds from airfields, imitating the screams of this predator. As they say in the media, both new products were originally created for discreet guidance.
