The development of the BAE Systems HERTI unmanned aerial vehicle was started by British specialists in the field of aircraft construction and military aerospace technologies at the beginning of the 2000-ies. Initially, the drone was intended for carrying out tasks related to reconnaissance, patrol and observation flights, aerial photography and aerial photography, but later, thanks to some modernization of the UAV, the device was used for a wider range of tasks, for example for special missions, as Independent combat unit and others.

Unmanned aerial vehicle has a very large dimensions, in particular if the drone fuselage length is 5 meters, the scale of this device is the wings 12 meters. In turn, it is important to clarify the fact that the UAV BAE Systems HERTI differs quite acceptable maneuverability, due primarily to a number of features of the drone designs that give UAVs good aerodynamic properties.

The power plant of the BAE Systems HERTI unmanned aerial vehicle is represented by one Rotax 914 piston turbocharged engine, four working cylinders of which provide the drone with 100 hp thrust, which allows the device to reach a maximum flight speed of 250 km / h.
