UAV GAF Turana is a UAV, operated as a target for testing new weapons systems, in particular, we are talking about testing missiles "ground-to-air" and "air-to-air." In general, the unmanned aerial vehicle model GAF Turana has a very limited scope, and that is mainly due to the absence of the possibility of using various means to the outer housing of the UAV. According to the above mentioned reasons, the unmanned aerial vehicle GAF Turana had a very limited production - over a ten year period, the release was built just 23 drone of the model, and, to date, their operation officially terminated, that is mainly due to obsolescence design.
To start the jet UAV GAF Turana used a special apparatus, which in turn provides relatively high efficiency, so as inherently UAV can be run with virtually any position, provided that the marketplace will have dimensions of at least 4 sq. m.
