‘Flying nightmare’: Russia makes aerial shotgun-wielding drone

Published 2019-04-03 12:15:25 by News Desk in World-News

Russia’s Moscow Aviation Institute has presented an unnamed drone that can shoot 12-gauge ammunition to take down rogue drones.

According to a video uploaded to YouTube, the drone starts at an uncommon vertical upwards-looking position. Its frame hull is built entirely around a Vepr-12 semi-automatic shotgun. The Vepr — much like its direct competitor to Izhmash’s Saiga-12 shotgun — shares a lot of similarities with the famous AK assault rifle, but instead shoots 12-gauge rounds. Naturally, the shotgun installed on the drone lacks stock and pistol grip, since drones have no shoulders or hands. “The use of a shotgun instead… Read on ->
