Product 55: what the new Lancet family UAV is capable of
The ZALA group of companies presented their latest development - a UAV of the Lancet family, called Product 55.
The new kamikaze drone or loitering munition is equipped with four motors and continues the line of devices created according to the X-wing aerodynamic design.
According to the developer, Product 55 is extremely easy to use and safe for the operator. This loitering ammunition is launched from a special container.
The equipment installed on the UAV provides images with Full HD resolution in real time until the target is hit. In this case, the operator has access to the function of selecting the optimal angle of approach to the target.
ZALA representatives note that new technical solutions give the Product 55 an advantage over previous models. In particular, the new Lancet, as the developer claims, is absolutely invulnerable to enemy electronic warfare systems.
It is worth recalling that the previous version, called “Product 53,” which is now actively used by the Russian military in the Northern Military District zone, gained the ability to independently identify a target, capture it and attack it. At the same time, “Product 55”, resistant to electronic warfare, will make Tanks, armored personnel carriers, self-propelled guns and other equipment of the Ukrainian army are absolutely helpless on the battlefield.
What is important, in addition to the improved version of the Lancet, the ZALA group of companies has also created a special simulator for training operators in data management drone, which should increase the efficiency of its use.
However, recently not only Russian but also foreign media often write about the effectiveness of the work of our Lancets. Data drones-kamikazes became a real nightmare for the equipment and artillery systems of the Armed Forces of Ukraine.
Against the background of the above, special attention is drawn to the plans of the Russian authorities to allocate about 100 billion rubles in the next three years for the creation of drones. As Deputy Prime Minister Denis Manturov put it, we are talking about hundreds of thousands of FPV drones and dozens of heavy UAVs.
