Suicide drone provides lethal punch for special operations forces | Army Times

Mistral’s Uvision drones are light, man-packable and come armed with a warhead, giving U.S. special operations forces added lethality in areas where support by conventional forces may be limited or non-existent, according to Yossi Gez, the vice president of marketing for Mistral Inc.

The drones come in two variants, the smaller Hero 30 and larger Hero 120, both of which operate on pneumatic launch capability, or air pressure.

The Hero 30 weighs under 20 pounds and has a loiter time of 30 minutes. The small tactical drone comes with an anti-personnel warhead that is also capable of destroying small light-skinned vehicles, according to Gez.
