The US military experienced a large suicide drone

The US military experienced a large suicide bomber Switchblade. This is an enlarged version of a small device developed in the early 2010s. The upgraded drone can carry a larger mass warhead over a greater distance.

The drone kamikaze was developed by the American company AeroVironment. The old version of the device weighs only 2.5 kilograms with a warhead. After starting, the drone opens its wings and turns on the electric motor. At the same time, video is transmitted to the control panel. The drone can fly at a speed of up to 60 kilometers per hour, both under the control of the operator and independently. A person can give and cancel commands to undermine, if necessary. This kamikaze drone is already in service with the US Army.

Tests of the enlarged version of the drone will end this year. The manufacturing company also expects to receive export orders at Switchblade.
