According to sources, “Songar” will be able to hit targets as tiny as 6-inches from distance upto 650-feet. It will be featured with fire 5.56 x 45 mm NATO class bullets.

This military drone can be flown of up to three in groups, all of which can be functional by a single controller.

It will also come featured with a camera to make its effective for surveillance and scouting missions. GPS will be used for its navigation and its vision system will be functional day and night.
