The GAF Turana unmanned aerial vehicle is a UAV operated as a target for testing new weapons systems, in particular, we are talking about testing surface-to-air and air-to-air missiles. In general, the GAF Turana unmanned aerial vehicle has a very limited scope of application, which is mainly due to the lack of the possibility of using various means on the outer hull of this UAV. For the above reasons, the GAF Turana unmanned aerial vehicle had a very limited production - only 23 drones of this model were built during the ten-year production period, and, to date, their operation has been officially terminated, which is mainly due to the obsolescence of the design.

To start the jet UAV GAF Turana used a special apparatus, which in turn provides relatively high efficiency, so as inherently UAV can be run with virtually any position, provided that the marketplace will have dimensions of at least 4 sq. m.

Maximum range of flight UAV GAF Turana is 500 kilometers, while the speed of flight of this device can reach 685 km \ h., Which is quite acceptable, but the high cost of the drone did not appeal to potential operators.

The power plant of the GAF Turana unmanned aerial vehicle is represented by a Microturbo Cougar 022-01 jet engine, the operating thrust of which is 0,24 kN.
