Aug 9, 2023

After the rear tests, the new Ukrainian SpyGun UAV was transferred to the combat zone for testing.


This was reported by the Defence Intelligence of Ukraine.

The SpyGun drone is designed for deep reconnaissance, but if necessary, it can also be used to adjust fire.

The UAV was created by Ukrainian engineers and designers on the initiative of entrepreneur and volunteer Yuriy Holyk and tennis player and now a serviceman of the Armed Forces of Ukraine Serhiy Stakhovsky.

The complex consists of two UAVs and a ground control station.

Thanks to a modern radio control system with a high level of protection against electronic warfare interference, the reconnaissance aircraft can operate at a range of up to 50 km.

The SpyGun drone is equipped with an automatic return to takeoff point system, and its high aerodynamic characteristics allow it to ply the selected route with the engine off, saving battery power.

  • The flight time without landing is 120-160 minutes.
  • The maximum flight altitude is 1500 meters.
  • Operating altitude - 500-600 m.
  • Speed - 90 km/h.
  • Cameras - online course camera and GoPro.

Photos and videos are recorded on the onboard storage device.

The SpyGun UAV is relatively inexpensive and quick to produce with a simple body design that makes the SpyGun invisible in the sky during operation.
