Lockheed Martin Polecat - US military multipurpose unmanned aerial vehicle developed in 2005, the company «Lockheed Martin».

The design of the unmanned aircraft model Lockheed Martin Polecat was deployed by American aircraft manufacturers and specialists in the field of aerospace systems and technologies in the early 2000-ies. The new device was supposed to be used as an air reconnaissance device, however, due to its wide capabilities, the drone could also be used for patrol and observation flights, search and special missions, and even as an independent combat unit, which provided the device with a very wide scope.

Unmanned aerial vehicle Lockheed Martin Polecat model made its first test flight in 2005 year, and due to the fact that the project could prove to be highly effective and promising, the device has been improved by the implementation of specific tasks. Nevertheless, in December 2006 years, unmanned aerial vehicle crashed, and therefore on its creation program was temporarily minimized, however, has not been abolished, it points to the fact that work on the project can be continued in the near future.

The American military drone Lockheed Martin Polecat has quite large dimensions of its fuselage, in particular, with a length of 8 meters 30 centimeters, the wingspan of the UAV is 27 meters 44 centimeters, which, to some extent, limits its maneuverability, however, to minimize this negative factor, the unmanned aerial the device is equipped with two powerful jet engines, each of which has a traction power in 13,38 kN, the total work of which allows the drone to reach the maximum speed of its movement in XN UMX km / h, while autonomous flight mode is limited to 750 hours.
