UAV Codarra Avatar model is a jet-driven target applied to test new kind of arms and artillery systems, including small arms used by engineering and rocket, wave and other kinds of weapons.

Due to a low enough cost, unmanned aerial vehicle model GAF Jindivik is widespread not only in Australia but also in other countries, including the UK, US and Sweden, however, if in Australia UAV GAF Jindivik used for testing different types of weapons, in other countries, the drone was used primarily for testing new missiles "ground-to-air" and "air-to-air."

Model UAV GAF Jindivik has sufficiently large dimensions, and, shape drone certainly coincides with the form of military aircraft, which allows the best way to evaluate the results of ongoing tests to ensure getting more correct results.

In addition to the use of drone GAF Jindivik for testing weapons, the model of an unmanned aircraft is also very widely used, and the test of modern missiles control systems, in particular, we are talking about the jet engine testing, the radio control system testing, etc.

GAF Jindivik UAV is equipped with a jet engine the brand Armstrong Siddeley Viper 8, able to develop traction in 2,37 kN., Which provides a very high speed to move the drone in space, in particular, the maximum rate can reach values ​​in 890 km \ h. (Depending on the variant of the drone).
