Meggitt GT-400 - American drone military mission, developed by «Meggitt Defence Systems».

UAV model Meggitt GT-400 used as a military air targets at the same time the operational sphere of air tools is very limited. Despite the rather narrow and specialized use of the aircraft, it means the air is quite enjoys great support not only in the US Armed Forces, but also in the Armed Forces of Canada, and, operation of UAVs this model continues to this day.

The dimensions of the unmanned aircraft model Meggitt GT-400 are fairly standard for the means of this class and application, in particular, when the length of the fuselage in 2 63 centimeter meter, wingspan of the air vehicle is only 72 centimeter, which in turn gives the drone good maneuverability, However, in order to keep the device airborne, it must have a high speed of flight, which is perhaps the only drawback.

The US military unmanned aerial vehicle Meggitt GT-400 is equipped with a jet-type powerplant, which allows the device to accelerate to maximum flight speed in 740 km / h, which is applicable in cases of testing anti-aircraft weapons operating at subsonic speeds. However, it is important to take into account the fact that the maximum flight duration of this aircraft is rather limited, and is only 30 minutes, while the effective range of the UAV is 120 kilometers.
