Poland’s WZL-2 unveiled its Dragonfly vertical take-off and landing loitering munition system at the recent MSPO defence industry exhibition in Kielce. The quadcopter has 5.5m wingspan and 3.2m vehicle length, a maximum take-off weight of 80-90kg, including a 20kg payload such as an electro-optical/infrared sensor and synthetic aperture radar. After locating a target and actuating its video-tracking mode, the Dragonfly can conduct an attack mission, even continuing this if the communication link is lost. Program director, Tomasz Gugala, said the firm is close to launching mass production for Poland’s military forces.
