Kalashnikov says the drone – which can last up to six hours – is an extremely accurate and very effective weapon that is extremely difficult to counter with traditional air defense systems.
After launch, the drone can hover in the air to detect a target and then attack the target from the upper hemisphere, possibly performing a vertical orbit dive.
The drone, shot down in Kyiv, contains explosives (plastids) with metal balls to inflict maximum damage on people.
