Senior Prom - US military unmanned aerial vehicle developed in 1978, the companies «Lockheed» and «Skunk Works».
Design of UAV models Senior Prom was deployed by US aircraft manufacturers and experts in the field of aerospace systems in the middle of 7-ies of the last century. Due to the fact that the experts as the reference base used is already finished construction of a military aircraft, the development process is able to minimize, as well, and reduce costs, which in turn provided the drone Senior Prom high promise.
UAVs model Senior Prom is a reconnaissance and combat air vehicle shall be equipped with weapons that can destroy the enemy and destroy his position. Initially this device was launched with a special ramp (chassis, as such, is not in the drone), or else to accelerate other aircraft, as a result, the UAV Senior Prom positioned as a single drone use.
American drone Senior Prom has made its first flight in October 1978 year, however, despite the fact that the first testing device has passed quite successfully, for the past four years, the project turned out to be completely closed, which was due to the lack of opportunities for improving the configuration of the UAV .
Powerplant UAV Senior Prom presented a turbojet engine, which allows the drone to reach a maximum speed of its movement in 850 km \ h. However, due to the relatively small supply of fuel, the maximum flight range of this device is limited 350 kilometers.
