The design of the unmanned aerial vehicle Meteor Mirach 26 began by Italian specialists in the field of aerospace engineering at the beginning of the 90-ies of the last century. As a preliminary basis, the designers used the Meteor Mirach 20 drone model, further improving its design and technical part, and thereby increasing the operational capabilities. Due to the use of the already ready-made base, the unmanned aerial vehicle Meteor Mirach 26 was able to make its first flight in 1992, which proved to be quite successful, due to which the device was launched and mass-produced.

UAV model Meteor Mirach 26 positioned as a reconnaissance drone, used mainly to carry out intelligence surrounding area, as well as allowing to coordinate the actions of military units on the battlefield. Due to the relatively low cost, the UAV Meteor Mirach 26 been mass production, and, operation of this unit has established itself not only in the Armed Forces of Italy, but also in the armed forces of other countries, such as Greece and Spain.

To ensure the unit high speed of movement, on the unmanned aircraft Meteor Mirach 26 installed piston engine brand Sachs SF-350, which is having a capacity of 26 hp, allows the drone to reach a maximum speed of its movement in 220 km \ h., And, UAV It may be in the autonomous flight time of up to 6 hours.
