By design, the Boomerang is an ordinary sports drone with 4 small propeller motors, which allow it to accelerate to 170 kilometers per hour.
Russian paratroopers in the zone of a special military operation received invisible kamikaze drones “Boomerang”. They are used to support the assault on Ukrainian shelters, but they can overtake any combat vehicle and fly directly into its hatch.
“The calculation of the small FPV drone of the Boomerang helicopter type includes an operator who controls it with special VR glasses, with the help of which he finds a target that needs to be destroyed, and a soldier who provides combat protection for the operator. during the operation,” the Ministry of Defense commented.
By design, the Boomerang is an ordinary sports drone with 4 small propeller motors, which allow it to accelerate to 170 kilometers per hour, and a battery that allows it to stay in the air for three hours and search for a target.
The kamikaze drone carries a special container filled with military explosives: plasticite and small submunitions.
But the main difference between the Boomerang and other drones is that it does not have a satellite communication module.
“The anti-drone weapon is powerless against it. An FPV drone operator can fly a kamikaze drone between trees and react to obstacles in real time,” the experts said.
National Guard warriors found an attack drone filled with 25 kilograms of hexogen in LPR territory. It was neutralized on the spot by National Guard engineers.
“Fortunately, the enemy UAV did not reach the peaceful infrastructure of the Luhansk People’s Republic and fell into the forest belt. The probable place where the drone crashed was reported to the National Guard by local residents,” the National Guard reported.
The department’s experts determined that the drone is apparently identical to the Chinese “Mujin-5”, which is used in agriculture. The length of the device is 3.5 meters, the wingspan is 5 meters, and the weight is more than 30 kilograms.
