The Berkut UAV aircraft is the unmanned version (UAV) of the Berkut platform. The UAV version has been designed to fly ISR (Intelligence, Surveillance, and Reconnaissance) operations of low-medium altitude and long-endurance (MALE).
The aircraft can host a wide variety of remote-sensing equipment in its central cargo bay and side pylons. Built using the same frame or main structure, with an open architecture flight management system (FMS), the solution minimizes construction costs maximizing operational flexibility.
