Rheinmetall Defence and its partner Israel Aerospace Industries (IAI) have successfully tested their Wabep unmanned weapon system.

 

Defined as a "weapon system for stand-off engagement of individual and point targets", Wabep consists of a Rheinmetall-made KZO unmanned air vehicle and an IAI Harop attack drone.

 

According to the companies, the KZO and Harop were flown in a networked mode in a variety of operational scenarios during test flights.

 

The latter received data from the reconnaissance asset via a combined system computer. This included a large number of landmarks and infrastructure installations, as well as stationary and moving targets.

 

The Harop has an extended loitering capability, and can be used to engage high-value targets with extreme precision, IAI said.

 

When linked with the KZO, it is possible to abort an attack mission just before impact.
