EADS Iris Prop - Greek military unmanned aerial vehicle developed by «EADS 3 Sigma».

The Greek military unmanned aerial vehicle model EADS Iris Prop was designed by aircraft builders from the company EADS 3 Sigma on the basis of unmanned aerial vehicle model EADS Iris Jet, which made it possible to somewhat simplify the development of such a drone, and despite the use of the already ready base, the UAV Has received a number of constructive improvements and technical changes, which allows to call this device not a modification, but relates it to a separate model. Due to the use of less expensive components and systems, the cost of this unmanned aerial vehicle was lower than planned, which in turn led to the popularization of this aircraft.

Despite the change in design and flight performance, the actual purpose of the aircraft and the scope of its operation have not changed, in particular, the UAV used in the military sphere as an air target is used as during exercise, and during trials of new air defense systems .

Drone EADS Iris Prop has a very standard dimensions for aircraft of this class, in particular, when the length of the fuselage in 3 meters 35 centimeters and a height of 88 cm, span of air tools wings of 2 meters 90 centimeters, which provides both a fairly simple transportation, and how generally does not cause problems in operation of the UAV.

As the power plant air tool EADS Iris Prop model applies a reciprocating internal combustion engine with a capacity of 38 hp, which allows the device to reach speeds of up to 325 km \ h.
