In fact, the unmanned aerial vehicle was supposed to replace the operation of manned aircraft, which in turn would reduce the cost of using aircraft in patrol and observation missions.

His first flight of an unmanned aerial vehicle Petrel model has made in 2015 year, and due to the fact that the device has successfully coped with the task, the project began to prepare for the beginning of production, however, we are talking about the release of a few instances of air tools, due primarily to the lack of demand in other structures.
