At the beginning of the year 1989 jointly by French and German designers began developing a fundamentally new model called unmanned KZO. Yet in 1995, the French refused to cooperate on the project, the final fine-tuning of the UAV conducted a German company Rheinmetall DeTec, which produced the first car of this class in 1998 year.
The first order of these machines carried the Bundeswehr in 1998 year, was ordered immediately 8 UAV platoons, each platoon contains 10 2 vehicles and ground stations to control, which are based on the chassis of trucks.
The first unmanned KZO platoons to serve in the army only arrived in late autumn 2005 years, this was due to a number of technical problems that have been associated with the construction. The remaining ordered platoons came to 2007, after which began operation in actual combat conditions. External parameters are very similar to an unmanned vehicle manufactured in the US under the symbol StrategyPage.
The total mass of the German KZO unmanned during takeoff is 161 kilogram, while on the machine can be placed up to 28 kilogram payload. This aircraft can be used effectively to enemy jamming and electronic intelligence. Depending on the task on the device or install equipment Fledermaus Mucke. Also installation of radar device or infrared sensor. This UAV has installed cameras that allow you to observe the territory from a height in real time. The range of the drone from the control reaches 150 kilometers, in addition, the air can be up to KZO 6 hours.
