The manufacturer UADCOM offers the SkyFist drone - this project has been implemented by ATO / OOS participants since 2016. According to the developers, the drone has already confirmed successful combat use. Thus, one of the units of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, thanks to SkyFist, once destroyed the fuel depot of the Russian occupation forces, located along the line of demarcation, which was recorded on video.
According to the project, SkyFist is a reusable drone, as it returns to base after the launch of 2 kg or 3 kg of ammunition. This scheme makes the task of one strike much cheaper compared to the use of kamikaze drones, because the most expensive part (glider with control and navigation systems) remains. The range of the drone is 45 km, speed - 20 m / s, the declared accuracy of impact - 4 m. The time required for recharging - 3 minutes. Due to its small size, this UAV can be used for special operations or prompt delivery of goods (eg medical supplies) to hard-to-reach places. It also reduces the visibility of SkyFist (including audiovisual and thermal), making it difficult to combat.
