Design UAV model Curtiss-Wright KD2C Skeet started by American specialists in the field of aviation and aerospace technology in the first half 40-ies. Suffice narrow specificity of application of this unmanned aircraft, has not led to the fact that this unmanned aerial vehicle enjoyed low popularity, but on the contrary, the drone is very actively used to test new weapons systems (mostly we are talking about small arms - author's note.) And also for training pilots of military aircraft.

Despite the relatively high efficiency of this unmanned aerial vehicle project in 1949 year it was officially closed, however, during the period at 1945 1949 year was built about 30 of aircraft of this model. Considering the technical equipment UAV model Curtiss-Wright KD2C Skeet, this device is largely ahead of his time, which made it possible subsequently to develop drones precisely on the basis of this UAV.

UAV models of Curtiss-Wright KD2C Skeet has a fairly large size - with a length of the fuselage in 5,2 meters, wingspan of this drone is 3,2 meters, however, thanks to good wind component unmanned aircraft Curtiss-Wright KD2C Skeet has a good maneuverability and can accelerate to high flight speeds.

Powerplant UAV Curtiss-Wright KD2C Skeet represented by one Pulsejet that allows drone to reach a maximum speed of its flight in 540 km \ h., While the maximum length of time in the air at this drone is 30 minutes.

Yes, I confirm this is their development, MR do not agree that it all goes according to plan, many military used this technique for other purposes and for personal gain such as the use of explosives to blow up the telecommunications lines of communication and other sources to spoil broadcast political programs .. .
