DRDO Rustom-II - Indian military multipurpose unmanned aerial vehicle developed by «Defence Research and Development Organization» in 2016 year.

The design of the DRDO Rustom-II unmanned aerial vehicle was carried out by Indian aircraft manufacturers from the Defense Research and Development Organization based on the DRDO Rustom model, which made it possible not only to reduce the production time of the drone, but also to reduce the cost of the project itself, which in turn should provide the prospect of using this device in service with India and other countries, since the aircraft is also designed for export to other countries.

Unmanned aerial vehicle models DRDO Rustom-II, as well as its predecessor DRDO Rustom, performed in the airplane-type configuration, and, drone has very large dimensions, which requires a specially prepared strip to run devices, however, given the fact that the UAV DRDO Rustom-II is used for purposes such as exploration areas, the implementation of observation and patrol flights, aerial photography and aerial photography, it pays for itself and it is not a problem.

Its first flight unmanned aerial vehicle model DRDO Rustom-II produced in 2016 year, and due to the fact that the first stage of testing successfully completed, the experts expressed confidence in the prospects of this project, which, however, is scheduled only 2018 years.

Power section Indian unmanned air means DRDO Rustom-II model is represented by two piston engines providing device to filter at a speed of about 210 km \ h., At ranges up to 100 kilometers.
