The American company Kratos has launched the Air Wolf tactical drone: it can be used one-time because of its low cost.
The new Air Wolf drone is the latest development from Kratos in a series of inexpensive vehicles that you can use only once. The drone can be launched pneumatically.
Earlier in the line of inexpensive devices that can be sacrificed during the battle, there were: the unmanned slave XQ-58A Valkyrie and UTAP-22 Mako, on which a prototype of an artificial intelligence system for unmanned slaves was tested.
Now little is known about Air Wolf: until 2020, it was developed as part of Project F, funded by a secret military client.
Flightglobal suggests the Air Wolf is similar to the MQM-178 target drone. It is the smallest air target 3.3 m long and 1.9 m wide.It is launched from a pneumatic launcher, with a maximum speed of 772 km / h. Air Wolf was first tested in Oklahoma: the flight was successful, but no details were disclosed.
Previously, Kratos developed a drone for restricted and denied access and maneuvering zones: it can fly at transonic speeds.
