V-Bat - US military unmanned aerial vehicle developed by «MLB».

The unmanned aerial vehicle V-Bat has a rather narrow scope of application, in particular, the drone can be used as an intelligence or observation aircraft, and can also perform tasks directly related to cartography, aerial photography and aerial surveying. Due to the narrow specificity of its application, this air facility among the US military commanders did not find much support, and only a few copies of this UAV were produced during the entire production period.

US unmanned aerial vehicle model V-Bat has a relatively small size, particularly, when the length of the device 0,7 meter wingspan and constituting 3 meter height UAV is 2,4 meter. Due to the relatively high altitude, to ensure a stable landing of the aircraft, it requires a specially prepared site, strictly and precisely aligned in the horizontal plane, with dimensions not less than 2,5 on 2,5 meters, which to some extent complicates the task of the UAV operation, since it does not It allows the use of a drone in the field.

Unmanned air vehicle carries takeoff and landing vertically, thus, in the course of the flight device unfolds and moves in a horizontal plane, allowing it to carry out flight on a fairly high speed. As the power plant is used piston gasoline engine, which is able to disperse the UAV to a top speed of 145 km \ h.
