Locats - South African military unmanned aerial vehicle developed by «BAE Systems Land Systems».

The unmanned aerial vehicle was designed by aircraft manufacturers from BAE Systems Land Systems for use solely in the military field, where the drone to all other, has a rather narrow specificity of its application, being exploited as an air target (during exercises, for training personnel of air defense systems And missile defense, for testing new weapons systems, etc.). Due to the rather narrow specificity of its use, this air vehicle did not find much popularity, and the production of the drone was rather limited, although as of mid-2016, this aircraft was not removed from production.

Unmanned aerial vehicle has dimensions comparable with most types of drones, particularly when the device is in 3,5 meter length, the magnitude of its wings 3,2 meter, thus, the mass is different aircraft higher value is about 52 kilogram.

Launching UAV made by means of a special pneumatic catapult, which is able to give the initial impulse device, providing a nominal speed to perform the flight, while the planting is done by parachute system.

The power unit of the aircraft presented a piston engine with a capacity of 38 kw., Which allows the device to reach a maximum speed of movement to 300 km \ h., At the maximum flight duration 1 hour and the effective range of repetition in 80 kilometers.
