Argus Fernfeuer - German multi-purpose military drone aircraft designed in 1939, the company «Argus Motoren GmbH.».

Design of multi-purpose UAV was deployed Argus Fernfeuer German experts in the field of aeronautical engineering in 1937 year. Developed unmanned aerial vehicle was originally supposed to operate as a drone target, however, by special order of the German armed forces, the device has been upgraded, and the bore is already fighting character, in particular, the UAV Argus Fernfeuer used for bombing, in doing so, despite the fact that bomb unit load is very low, the drone has a high efficiency, however, the actual use of it was carried out only up to 1941 years, which was associated with the implementation of the project missile V-1.

In 1939, the unmanned aerial vehicle Argus Fernfeuer successfully passed all the necessary tests, in particular, the flying distance of 70 kilometers drone successfully reset the bomb, but the UAV operation was very complicated by the fact that the device is in need of visual coordination, that it was not always possible. For this reason, in 1941, the German High Command came to the need for the launch of the rocket project V-1, which was more simple in terms of its operation, as taking into account the real speed and flight angle, she could hit the target with an accuracy of up to 20 meters .

UAV Argus Fernfeuer has a very large dimensions, in particular, the length of the device is 9,5 meters, wingspan - 10 meters, and height - 1 meter.

Management UAVs Argus Fernfeuer carried out by radio, with a maximum range of flight device up to 1 thousand kilometers (the distance limit following is for informational purposes only).
