With the arrival of the 21st century, the combat mode of modern warfare has undergone great changes, including the widespread application of drones. Drones have made breakthrough progress in the new era and have made many appearances in many wars. , and won repeated military exploits, countries began to realize how important drones were in war, so they began to develop drones one after another.

Isn’t this the birth of drones with speeds exceeding 1,000 kilometers per hour? It’s just that among the advanced military drones that have appeared in recent years, none of them are at the top of the list. It can be seen that there are no truly advanced drones in the field of drones. The country is still in the United States, and Turkey also has representative drones. Today let us take a look at some of the most advanced drones in the world.

1.RQ-4 Global Hawk UAV


The Global Hawk UAV is a UAV developed by the United States. It entered service in 2000 and is currently in service with the U.S. Air Force and Navy. It can provide commanders at the rear with the ability to survey the battlefield or monitor detailed targets. It is equipped with a high-resolution synthetic aperture radar, which can see through clouds and sand, as well as a photoelectric infrared module, capable of long-range and long-term dynamic monitoring of the entire area.

And this surveillance range is also very large. The surveillance area during the day exceeds 100,000 square kilometers, which means that a city can be monitored easily. Therefore, in wartime, the Global Hawk drone has a very large Functional.The cost of the Global Hawk UAV has reached 70 million US dollars, its maximum speed has reached 740 kilometers per hour, its maximum range has reached 26,000 kilometers, and its flight altitude has reached 18,000 meters. In every aspect, its performance is It is very superior, and it has also become a major reform in the drone industry. Although such advanced drones have been in service for 20 years, there are very few drones that can surpass it.

2. X-47B UAV


The X-47B UAV is actually a type of experimental UAV in the United States. It is also the first tailless, jet-type unmanned aircraft in human history that does not require manual intervention and is completely controlled by a computer. What is interesting is that , it is also the first stealth unmanned bomber to take off from an aircraft carrier and land on its own.

According to data released by the United States, its length is 11.63 meters, its wingspan is 18.92 meters, its maximum range is 4,000 kilometers, and its cruising speed is Mach 0.9. Even though it is an experimental aircraft, it is faster than most drones in the world. It's too advanced.

Interestingly, the appearance of this X-47B drone is similar to the B-2 stealth bomber. It seems that the United States is full of expectations for this drone.

Although it was just a test aircraft, it also laid the foundation and paved the way for the subsequent drone industry. You must know that it is not easy to build a stealth drone bomber.

3. MQ-9 UAV(Reaper UAV)


The Reaper UAV, also known as the MQ-9 UAV, is called the Reaper, which is enough to show that the United States recognizes the strength of this UAV.

This is an unmanned combat aircraft developed by the United States in the 1990s. It can perform intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance missions. The Reaper drone has a wingspan of 20 meters and a maximum speed of 460 kilometers per hour. The endurance time is Then it is 15 hours.

The US military has also put it into actual combat. During wartime, the main task of the Reaper drone is to provide close air support for ground troops, and can perform surveillance and reconnaissance missions in mountainous and dangerous areas, and can also be used according to the situation. , can be ready to fire at any time according to demand. In 2007, the United States sent the Reaper drone to Afghanistan to perform combat missions and entered actual combat.
