Vietnamese unmanned systems company RT Robotics has unveiled an unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) system that is capable of dropping up to nine grenades per sortie.
The system, which has been dubbed as the Hera ‘individual combat drone’, is man-portable and propelled by four rotor-wings.
RT Robotics is a subsidiary of Vietnamese conglomerate CT Group, which also has business in real estate, finance, construction, and technology sectors.
“Compared to similar UAVs manufactured by Israel, US, and NATO countries, the Hera is the most capable [in terms of the number of grenades that can be carried]. It is also more portable as it weighs only 9 kg and is the lightest [in the class of similar UAVs]”, Quoc said.
