Test of new drone’s capabilities at air base

The technical capabilities of the MQ-9 Guardian drone were demonstrated Thursday at the Larissa air base. Manufactured by US firm General Atomic Aeronautical Systems, the MQ-9 can fly for more than 40 hours, has a thermal camera and a daytime camera and a radar range of 250 km. Last week Defense Minister Nikos Panagiotopoulos said Greece is to acquire three drones from the US with surveillance capabilities ranging as far as Libya. [ANA-MPA]
