Bird of Prey
Russia has designed a new combat surveillance drone that has the appearance of a snowy owl. The drone was just unveiled at the Defense Ministry's annual military expo in Moscow.
UAV that's Laser Equipped
The drone is an unmanned aerial vehicle. It's equipped with a laser in its tail that can guide artillery, laser-guided bombs and aircraft to swoop in for an attack. Russia's Defense Ministry says it will be able to spot targets without being detected.
This new device weighs only 5 kilograms and can be handled, carried and launched by one person. It can fly up to 40 minutes and has a range of 12 miles. It's one of Russia's new military assets now on display at the expo.
