Ukraine company presents new Yatagan-2 unmanned combat air vehicle

Secretary of the National Security and Defense of Ukraine Oleksandr Turchynov visited the  proving ground in 31 May, where a demonstration and testing of unmanned aerial vehicles, most of which were produced in Ukraine, took place.

The Alliance “New Energy of Ukraine” is a Ukrainian Non-Governmental Organization, presents new Yatagan-2 unmanned combat air vehicle.  The Yatagan-2 is designed to provide the warfighter with a back-packable, non-line-of-sight precision strike solution with minimal collateral effects.

The vehicle’s small size and quiet motor make it difficult to detect, recognize and track even at very close range. The Yatagan-2 is fully scalable and can be launched from a variety of air and ground platforms.


General characteristics :

  • Range: 3000 m
  • Active Hours: 12 min
  • Armament :1 kg warhead (Yatagan-3 have 1,5 kg)

This Yatagan-2 drone is designed to loiter the battlefield and attack targets by self-destructing into them. If a target is not engaged, the drone will return and land itself back at base.
