LTV XQM-93 - US military unmanned aerial vehicle developed by «Ling-Temco-Vought» in 1970 year.

The LTV XQM-93 unmanned aerial vehicle is a communications drone that transmits and retransmits radio signals, which makes it possible to command armed forces at remote distances. The rather narrow specificity of the use of this unmanned aerial vehicle did not affect the popularization of the UAV, rather, on the contrary, since the US armed forces needed special means of radio communication, and therefore the drone was used for a very long period of time.

Designing communication UAV model LTV XQM-93 started by American specialists in the field of aviation and aerospace technology in the mid-60-ies of the last century. The main reason for the beginning of works in this direction served as an order from the US Department of Defense, and is in need of such devices.

Drone LTV XQM-93 has a sufficiently large size of its fuselage, in particular, at length in meters 9 2 centimeters wing span of the device is 17 37 centimeters meters that in turn to some extent affects the aerodynamic characteristics of the UAV.

Powerplant UAV represented by one model turboprop Pratt & Whitney PT6A-34, which is having a capacity of 475 hp, can accelerate the device before cruising airspeed in 170 km \ h., While the maximum length is greater than the drone flight 24 hours, which is very efficient, even by modern standards.
