The ANSU-200 is an Unmanned Aircraft System (UAS) of Venezuelan origin. Built around the modern concept of a flying wing, the air vehicle exhibits a blended wing-body design with tailless delta planform making for a true "flying wing" design. The upper nose-mounted intake is used to aspirate the assumed turbofan / turbojet engine within the body of the aircraft - though this powerplant is of unknown make, model, and output power. A retractable, wheeled tricycle undercarriage is installed for ground-running actions.

Little is known of this drone though the design has appeared on display in a Venezuelan military parade during 2022.

It is believed that the ANSU-200 has been developed for the country with heavy assistance delivered from Iranian engineers with technologies and capabilities undoubtedly taken from the capture of the then-secret American Lockheed RQ-170 "Sentinel" reconnaissance drone which fell into Iranian hands during December of 2011. The low-observable, stealthy system was quickly rebuilt and showcased on state media to reveal its capture.

A first-flight of the ANSU-200 was said to have taken place in June of 2021. What dimensions are known include a wingspan of 3 meters and an overall length of 2.05 meters.

However, because the Venezuelan system is based on the Iranian sanctions-limited re-engineering effort of an advanced American design, it can be assumed that the ANSU-200 does not possess the same exact over-battlefield capabilities and qualities of the proven original - as is the case with most direct / re-engineered copies undertaken by various military players across the glove.©MilitaryFactory.com
