The drone was launched from the Hercules transporter. The drone spent more than an hour and a half in the sky, RIA Novosti reports.

The Gremlins program involves the use of a large number of inexpensive drones operating in a swarm to mislead enemy air defense systems.

Each of the drones will receive a turbojet engine and will be able to fly at a distance of up to 1 thousand kilometers. After completing the task, the transport aircraft should catch drones in the air.

In 2018, the Pentagon has already published a video of the launch of the UAV from the Gremlins series. The newspaper VZGLYAD wrote in detail how drones will change the air battle of the future.
