JAS Meridian - Ukraine
Developed to operate in close proximity to active ground elements by way of a broad array of air-to-ground ordnance and munitions options.
SPECIAL-MISSION: SEARCH & RESCUE
Ability to locate and extract personnel from areas of potential harm or peril (i.e. downed airmen in the sea).
Aircraft inherently designed (or later developed) with an unmanned capability to cover a variety of over-battlefield roles.
Mainplanes capped with winglets, providing improved fuel efficiency and enhanced handling.
Design features ability to fly sans pilot, actions controlled onboard through programming and / or ground-based operator.
Payload supports photographic equipment providing still and / or real-time image / video results.
Maximum Take-Off Weight
monoplane / shoulder-mounted / straight
Design utilizes a single primary wing mainplane; this represents the most popular modern mainplane arrangement.
Mainplanes are mounted at the upper section of the fuselage, generally at the imaginary line intersecting the pilot's shoulders.
The planform involves use of basic, straight mainplane members.
1 x Engine driving a two-bladed propeller unit at the nose.
