DARPA Tern is an American military unmanned aerial vehicle developed by Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency.

The DARPA Tern unmanned aerial vehicle was designed by American aircraft builders from the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency to be used exclusively in the military sphere, however, despite this fact, the drone possesses very wide operational capabilities, including exploration of the terrain, observation and Patrol flights, performance of tasks related to aerial photography and aerial surveying, and in addition, and to destroy the forces of a potential enemy, for which the aircraft Arat is equipped with its own weapon system, which includes four missiles.

The DARPA Tern unmanned aerial vehicle is made by American aircraft builders in a very unusual configuration, in particular, during the flight the design of the drone is airplane oriented, while during take-off and landing, the device takes off in a vertical plane, which in turn ensures high Effectiveness of this UAV application. Nevertheless, it is important to take into account that the design of the unmanned aerial vehicle is quite impressive, which leads to some difficulties with the transportation of this device.

The power section of the American Drona Dern is represented by a single piston internal combustion engine, however, due to its special configuration, the drone can develop the maximum permissible speed in space up to 350 km / h, and carry out missions within a radius of 500 kilometers.
