The GAF Turana unmanned aerial vehicle is a UAV that is being used as a target for testing new weapons systems, in particular, this is about testing ground-to-air and air-to-air missiles. In general, an unmanned aerial vehicle model GAF Turana has a very limited scope of application, which is mainly due to the lack of the possibility of using various means on the external body of this UAV. For the above reasons, the GAF Turana unmanned aerial vehicle had very limited production - only a 23 drone of this model was built over the ten-year period of production, and, to date, their operation has officially ceased, which is mainly due to the obsolescence of the structure.

To start the jet UAV GAF Turana used a special apparatus, which in turn provides relatively high efficiency, so as inherently UAV can be run with virtually any position, provided that the marketplace will have dimensions of at least 4 sq. m.

Maximum range of flight UAV GAF Turana is 500 kilometers, while the speed of flight of this device can reach 685 km \ h., Which is quite acceptable, but the high cost of the drone did not appeal to potential operators.

The power plant of an unmanned aerial vehicle model GAF Turana is represented by a jet engine of the brand Microturbo Cougar 022-01, whose working thrust is 0,24 kN.
