Looks like a toy, doesn’t it? If all goes well, the Uganda People’s Defence Forces will own it to conduct “intelligence-gathering missions along its borders.”
This is the unmanned air vehicle, the Mini Falcon I UAV, from Israeli company, Innocon. The World Aeronautical Press Agency reports that the Ugandan government is considering the purchase of the Mini Falcon I UAC.
The Mini Falcon is capable of real-time surveillance and intelligence. It has a wingspan of five meters and has a maximum launch weight of 85 kilograms. It can operate for 12 straight hours. It is capable of unmanned take off and landing.
There you go. Another set of useless facts delivered straight to you for … well, for whatever.
You are welcome.
