The Sokil-2 is a tube-launched unmanned aerial vehicle, designed to be launched from combat vehicles that are also equipped with anti-tank missiles. It is fully encapsulated in a launch tube that has a small booster charge at the bottom. After firing, the wings spring open.It carries a Japanese manufactured camera that searches for enemy tanks, vehicles or other targets. The remotely controlled aircraft uses GPS to navigate and mark the targets. It does not carry a laser designator. Once an enemy target is spotted, then the home combat vehicle can deploy its anti-tank missiles. A command-and-control center can also monitor its video feeds.
It is currently being evaluated by the Ukrainian Armed Forces and not yet available for export.
