This is the Power of the Switchblade Drone that Russian Tanks Fear
The AeroVironment Switchblade is a miniature-sized loitering munition drone developed by AeroVironment. It is designed as a “kamikaze drone”, being able to crash into its target with an explosive warhead to destroy it. Two variants exist, the Switchblade 300 and the Switchblade 600.
The lighter Switchblade 300 is intended to kill people in the open and passengers in a vehicle.
The most powerful of the two Switchblades, the Switchblade 600, weighs 50lbs and can hover over a target for 40 minutes before darting down at speeds of 115mph, piercing armor and destroying a tank.
Both Switchblades are designed to be easily portable, fitting into a rucksack and fired from a tube set.
