Footage of the launch of the Russian kamikaze drone "Lancet" has been published. There is very little information on the drone, the manufacturer ZALA AERO provides only a minimum of data. Loitering ammunition "Lancet" is available in 3 types. A reduced version of the Lancet-1 drone, the warhead of the drone is high-explosive fragmentation weighing 1 kg, the flight time is 30 minutes at a distance of up to 40 km at a speed of up to 110 km/h, the take-off weight of the drone is 5 kg. The second version is the Lancet-3 drone, it is larger and heavier, the take-off weight of the drone has increased to 12 kg. The warhead of the drone is supplemented with a variant with a shaped charge weighing up to 3 kg. The flight time, depending on the load, already reaches 60 minutes, at a distance of up to 70 km, at a peak speed of up to 300 km / h. The third version of the loitering ammunition, the Lancet-3M drone, an upgraded version that received an X-shaped wing and small X-shaped plumage in the tail. There is no data on this model, as well as on the Lancet-5 and Lancet-10 drones of which information sometimes appears. It is not clear whether the Lancet-3M will replace the Lancet-3 version, or whether they will be released in parallel, one thing is for sure, the drone is constantly being improved. All drone models have an electric motor, and the drone itself is made of plastic and composite materials, which makes it difficult for air defense systems to detect it. The operating altitude of the drone is from 50-500 meters, in practice, as it turned out, it can fly below 50 meters. Drone "Lancet" contains three types of interchangeable guidance systems - coordinate, optoelectronic and combined, there is also a television communication channel that allows the operator to visually aim the drone at the target. The UAV can be equipped with a laser target designator, a target search sensor, a gas analyzer and a radiometer. The drone can operate in the “aerial mining” mode, which means patrolling the airspace and destroying other UAVs; there are no shots of its operation in this mode yet.
