MOSCOW, February 28. /TASS/. A drone enclosed in a projectile of Russia’s Smerch multiple launch rocket system will be capable of reconnoitering targets at an altitude of 500 meters during 20 minutes, according to a video presentation shown to TASS at Splav Enterprise (the system’s developer) on Tuesday.
As it follows from the presentation, the drone is designated for prompt target reconnaissance.
"The aerial vehicle’s hovering altitude is 500 meters and the hovering duration is 20 minutes. The aircraft can reconnoiter an area of up to 25 square kilometers," the accompanying text says.
A rocket with a drone can be fired to a maximum distance of 90 km.
As Splav General Designer Nikolai Makarovets said earlier on Tuesday, the Enterprise has already carried out work on this drone at its own expense and expects orders for the aerial vehicle in the imminent future.
