The drones are part of a new military aid package announced by Prime Minister Boris Johnson. The new British military package of 300 million pounds [$375 million] was announced on Tuesday, May 3.

Quadcopters have been tested by the British Royal Marines. The drones have a range of 70 km and can transport up to 68 kg of cargo. The British company Malloy Aeronautics produces Malloy T150 drones.

The T150 cargo drone quadcopter can operate autonomously for 36 minutes. The drone has been tested in various meteorological and climatic conditions. It can be controlled from a laptop using the points on the map to determine the route of the flight. The drone is quite compact, which allows you to fold it in a special case.
