“Spygun”: Ukraine tests new drone

The Armed Forces of Ukraine are testing a new domestically produced drone. The SpyGun drone is designed for deep reconnaissance but can be used to adjust fire if necessary.

“The UAV was created by Ukrainian engineers and designers at the initiative of entrepreneur and volunteer Yurii Holyk and tennis player, and now a serviceman of the Armed Forces, Serhii Stakhovskyi,” Ukrainian intelligence reported.

The system consists of two UAVs and a ground control station. A modern radio control system with a high level of protection allows the reconnaissance aircraft to operate at a range of up to 50 kilometers.

“The SpyGun drone is equipped with a system of automatic return to the take-off point, and high aerodynamic characteristics allow you to fly along the selected route with the engine turned off, saving battery power,” the intelligence added.

The maximum flight height of the drone is 1,500 meters, and the flight time without landing exceeds two and a half hours. The device can develop a speed of up to 90 km/h.

“The SpyGun UAV is relatively inexpensive and quick to manufacture with a simple body design, which allows the SpyGun to be inconspicuous in the sky during operation,” Ukraine’s intelligence reported.

After rear-end tests, the new Ukrainian UAV SpyGun is being tested in the combat zones.
