Ukrainian new combat drone makes international debut at IDEX 2021

Ukraine’s navy export company, Ukrspecexport, unveiled the Sokil-300 unmanned combat aerial car at the biennial International Defence Exhibition and Conference (IDEX).

The Sokil-300 (Falcon-300) is a strike drone developed by the Kyiv-based LUCH Design Bureau. It is a surveillance and reconnaissance unmanned aerial car (UAV) growing for the Ukrainian Armed Forces.

The Sokil-300 drone is armed with 4 guided missiles with a spread of as much as 10 km. It can carry a most payload of 300 kg, has a most takeoff load of 1,225 kg, and might attain a most pace of 335 km/h. The drone has a wingspan of 14m and a size of 8.57m.


As famous by the LUCH, the baseline model of UAV consists of the MC-500B engine manufactured by Zaporizhia-based Motor Sich and a complicated model options the Austrian, turbo-charged Rotax 914 engine with a most flight time of 26 hours, a distance of three,300 kilometers (2,050 miles).

In addition, earlier in November 2020, LUCH’s chief designer, Oleh Korostyliov, stated that complete improvement prices of the Sokil-300 are anticipated to achieve 40-45 million Ukrainian hryvnias ($1.4-1.6 million), a far cheaper possibility than buying related drone techniques overseas.
