The UAV is interesting in that it has a vertical take-off and landing system. Unfortunately, @UAWeapons cannot say exactly what model this is, but presumably we are talking about a rare PHOLOS unmanned aerial vehicle. It is being developed by the British company Overwatch Aerospace and the American Ascent Aerosystems.

Such a kamikaze drone boasts an on-board optical-electronic infrared camera. As for autonomy, according to the analyst, PHOLOS is able to stay in the air for up to 45 minutes. By the way, it is likely that the United Kingdom gave us such drones. At least in April, the country's Ministry of Defense said that it would send high-tech loitering ammunition to Ukraine for pinpoint strikes.
