Israeli loitering munitions house, UVision, has added a new, extended-range variant to its Hero family of loitering systems: the Hero-400EC.
A development of the earlier Hero-400 concept - which was equipped with a gasoline-powered engine and fixed planar wings - the 400EC [electric, cruciform] features a new electric motor, which delivers high-speed transit and low-speed loitering, with much lower acoustic and thermal signatures. A modified mid-section deployable cruciform wing configuration provides for improved endurance, lift and manuverability, and precision terminal engagement accuracy against static or moving targets, or targets in confined urban environments.
While the focus of earlier Hero 400 was primarily on the intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance (ISR) mission, the new configuration of Hero-400EC is optimised for the loitering munition role, where the deployable wings allow for high or low angles of attack, and the electric motor delivers improved stealth.
The system retains an ISR capability, but the 8 kg high-explosive (HE) warhead on the Hero-400 is replaced with a new, heavier up to 10 kg multipurpose warhead (tandem shaped-charge with HE) for engagement of a broad range of target sets, including main battle tanks.
The new system is 2.1 m in length, has a wing-span (tip-to-tip) of 2.4 m, and has a maximum take-off weight of 40 kg.
While North Korea is busy building obsolete ICBM's the rest of the world is building stealth unmanned fighters and bombers.
Buy a clue Kim shi.
