Carcara II - Brazilian military tactical UAV, designed by «Santos Labs».

When developing an unmanned aerial vehicle, aircraft designers from the Brazilian company Santos Labs used a model of the Carcara unmanned aerial vehicle as a reference base, which proved to be very successful and promising. Actual changes in the design of this drone were few, however, specialists were able to significantly improve the technical part of the drone, thus providing him with higher operational and flying performance. Due to such an unorthodox approach, aircraft builders managed to significantly reduce the terms of implementation and cost of the project, which allowed the device to be quite in demand, both in Brazil and in neighboring countries.

With its length of the fuselage in 98 centimeters wingspan drone Carcara II is 2 meters, which enables the system highly compact, allowing it to transport even in a car Military car. Problems with the launch of the device also does not arise, since its weight in kilograms 4 (maximum take-off weight of the device), start it can be done even with the help of muscle power, however, often used for this accelerating pneumatic catapult.

The power plant of the Brazilian multi-purpose unmanned aerial vehicle is represented by one electric motor, which is why, at the maximum speed of its movement in 90 km \ h., The drone can be in flight for only about 1,5 hours, which, however, is enough to perform the tasks on the tactical intelligence areas.
