The development of an unmanned aircraft designed for military purposes was carried out by Belarusian scientists and engineers-designers on the basis of civil UAV Petrel model that will significantly reduce the cost of the project, as well as the timing of its implementation. In fact, unmanned aerial Petrel MB model unit is an independent fighting unit, capable to apply precise strikes on enemy positions, which are in service with several drone missile, capable of inflicting serious damage as a lively force of the enemy, and armored vehicles.
For drone Petrel MB higher flight-technical qualities, design and technical equipment of the unmanned aerial vehicle has received a number of improvements that raised the maximum take-off weight of the UAV to 250 kg, it increased the maximum speed of the flight, as well as the effective range of applications.
The first flight tests of an unmanned aerial Petrel model MB unit has been exposed to 2016 year, and due to the fact that the device has produced the desired effect and successfully cope with the task, the project began to prepare for the beginning of its production. It is assumed that in addition to the delivery of unmanned aerial vehicles into service of the Belarusian army is also possible export drones to other countries and states.
Belarusian drone MB Petrel is equipped with electro-optical and infrared cameras, that allows you to receive objective information about the study area and locations of the enemy position.
Powerplant drone Petrel MB is represented by one piston engine, the Rotax, which at its facilities in 65 hp, can accelerate the UAV to a maximum airspeed in 250 km \ h.
