10 List of the Most Sophisticated War Drones in the World

International Military - Drones or unmanned aircraft are the latest military technology that is popular in various wars in the world, such as in Ukraine to Yemen. Drones have a variety of capabilities ranging from launching missile attacks to intelligence gathering. Unmanned aircraft are also capable of precise target acquisition. Currently, more than 100 countries produce drones.

In fact, only a few drones have an advantage in various battles. Here are the 10 best drones tested on the battlefield.

1. MQ-9 Reaper Drone

The MQ-9 Reaper is an unmanned aircraft that has a reputation as a killer drone with the ability to launch long-range missile attacks and high-altitude monitoring. When compared to other drones, the MQ-9 Reaper is heavier, bigger and more powerful. It's no surprise that it's one of the most technologically advanced drones to date.

At the beginning of last month, the MQ-9 Reaper reportedly collided with a Russian fighter jet in the Black Sea. That suggests the drone was used in combat support in Ukraine. In addition, the MQ-9 Reaper was also the drone that launched attacks on General Qassem Soleimani from Iran several years ago.

2. TAI Aksungur Drone

Aksungur is a drone developed by Turkish Aerospace Industries (TAI) and used by the Turkish military. The drone technology developed by Turkey is better and more practical to use on the battlefield.

TAI Aksungur is also capable of transporting missiles to special equipment in dangerous missions. Ideally, the drone could be used for remote intelligence operations. The drone can also carry out maritime patrol operations to carry out humanitarian missions.

TAI Aksungur is Türkiye's mainstay product. The drone is also planned to be sold to various countries. Indonesia is an interested party to buy. Angola will reportedly also buy the drone. The sophistication of these drones in the battle in Ukraine made Asungur even more famous in the world.

3. GJ-11 Sharp Sword Drone

Hongdu GJ-11 Sharp Sword is a drone that has the ability to control lasers to launch missiles. The results of the drone attack were likened to a fighter jet. The drone also has stealth capabilities so that the enemy cannot detect it.

It was designed by the Shenyang Aircraft Design Institute (SYADI), Shenyang Aerospace University (SAU), and Hongdu Aviation Industry Group (HAIG). The drone has been in development since November 2013. The drone was introduced to the public last year on the 70th Chinese National Day.

4. S-70 Okhotnik Drone

The S-70 Okhotnik is a long drone that has stealth capabilities. The Russian-made drone is capable of collaborating with the fifth-generation Su-57 aircraft. With the ability to carry a weight of 20 tons and a speed of 1,000 km per hour, this drone is feared on the battlefield. The drone also has a cruising range of up to 6,000 km so it can be used for long duration missions.

5. EADS Barracuda Drone

The EADS Barracuda is an unmanned aircraft designed to launch air attacks. The drone is a product of collaboration between Germany and Spain. It was designed to carry 300 kg of ammunition. The EADS Barracuda is also known as the first European military drone.

6. Avengers Drone

By using a turbofan engine, Avenger has a unique feature, namely being able to store weapons. The drone is also able to reduce the capture of radar signals. It was also used to transport ammunition as it was capable of carrying 3 tonnes of ammunition. However, the drone has a cool design and is capable of flying at high speeds.

7. XQ-58 Valkyrie Drone

The XQ-58 Valkyrie is a stealth drone designed by Kratos Defense & Security Solutions. Initially, the drone was known as the XQ-222. Made with the Low-Cost Attritable Aircraft Technology (LCAAT) portfolio, this combat drone guarantees satisfaction to its users.

8.X-47B Drone

The X-47B was designed to carry out missions from aircraft. The drone produced by the US defense company Northrop Grumman is a development of the Navy's military program. The drone is capable of carrying out refueling.

9. Wing Loong II Drone

Wing Loong II is an unmanned aircraft that can be controlled remotely or carry out combat operations alone. It was developed by Chengdu Aircraft Industry Group in China. The drone concept was introduced in September 2015 at Aviation Expo China in Beijing. It is used for intelligence operations, aerial surveillance and precision strike. So far, the aircraft is capable of carrying out long-range strikes through satellite connections and carrying laser-guided bombs.

10. Dassault nEUROn Drone

The Dassault nEUROn is a drone jointly produced by France, Greece, Italy, Spain, Sweden and Switzerland. The drone is capable of carrying out medium and long range attacks. It is also predicted that it will continue to be developed and optimized in accordance with various types of the latest technology.
