14X - Brazilian unmanned aerial vehicle developed in 2012, the engineers and scientists of the Air Forces of Brazil.

UAV 14X is a specialized drone, operated in the research and military purposes, in particular. This device is used for studying the aerodynamic properties when moving at supersonic speeds and to deliver a near-earth satellites space, thus performing the role of the booster module.

Design of unmanned air 14X model means Brazilian scientists began in the mid-2000's and initially tested this drone were to be held in the year 2010. However, for various reasons, they were really only held two years later, to the same, due to the fact that the device was not able to fully meet the requirements applied to him, work on the project continued.

Brazilian unmanned aerial vehicle has a fairly compact dimensions - with its length in meters 2,6, the device has a wingspan in 2 meters, however, due to the use of special materials, weight of the device is very high, in particular, the empty weight of the drone 250 kg.

Drone 14X equipped with means of telemetry, which allows to control its movement, thus, the UAV launch is carried out in a fully automatic mode.

As the power plant on the unmanned air vehicle 14X model applied reactive hydrogen engine, which allows the drone to accelerate to a maximum speed of flight in 12000 km \ h. However, with all this, the UAV has a very limited period of the power plant.
