The Pegasus 120 can carry different types of loads including heavy cameras and logistical assistance for troops in combat operations.

Israeli UAV developer Aeronautics is presenting its latest drones at the Paris Air Show this week. These include unveiling its Pegasus 120 drone, its first UAV designed for use by special forces as well as routine defense missions. In contrast with the drones used for leisure purposes, the Pegasus 120 can carry up to 75 kilograms, which provides it with major abilities in assisting soldiers and involvement in combat situations.

Aeronautics says that it can adapt the Pegasus 120 to carry different types of loads including heavy cameras and logistical assistance for troops in their combat operations.

Another new drone - the Orbiter 4 - is able to simultaneously carry two installations such as radar for sea patrols and sensors for cellular communications. These capabilities, say top executives at the Yavne based company, enable the UAV to undertake intelligence gathering missions in remote locations at a range of hundreds of kilometers at land or sea.
