The unmanned aerial vehicle GAF Turana is a UAV, used as a target, to test new weapons systems, in particular, it is about testing ground-to-air and air-to-air missiles. In general, the GAF Turana unmanned aerial vehicle has a very limited scope, which is mainly due to the lack of the possibility of using various means on the outer shell of this UAV. For the above reasons, the unmanned aerial vehicle GAF Turana had very limited production - in the ten-year period of production only 23 drones of this model were built, and today their operation is officially stopped, which is mainly due to 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.
