Israeli unmanned air system developer UVision has demonstrated its Hero 400EC extended-range loitering weapon system to what it describes as a „strategic customer“.

Conducted in southern Israel last month, the activity „proved the tracking and lock-on capabilities of the system using a moving vehicle and a human target in various operational scenarios“, the company says. It also demonstrated its precision-strike and mission-abort performance.
