Small, portable, easy delivery, long empty time...... For individual drones, these are all advantages.

If it is also required to be versatile, capable not only of reconnaissance and attack, but also of directing targets and even more, it is a little difficult to develop. Difficult, not impossible. The Drone40 drone deployed by British forces in Mali is proof that this is possible.

Functionally speaking, the Drone40 is a "little kid". It's made by Defendtex, an Australian company, and it's slightly longer than the diameter of an ordinary CD, less than half the diameter of a typical mouse, making it easy to carry around. It can be used either with a standard 40mm grenade launcher or by hand. Obviously, the unique design of the delivery method makes it better suited to the battlefield.

Despite their "mini" size, these small quadrotor drones can fly short distances and stay in the air for a long time. It can be fitted with a variety of small payloads, including all-electric optical cameras, high-explosive or armor-breaking warheads, electronic warfare jammers, laser designators, and smoke emitting devices. Users can use different payloads according to battlefield conditions in a timely manner, and control the satellite navigation system to carry out reconnaissance and attack, target indication, interference protection and other tasks through the use of handheld tablet computer.

Its ability of "fighting alone" is not weak, and it also has a certain potential in "group fighting". It is said to have been given the capability of "multi-aircraft simultaneous action", after launch can fly semi-autonomous formation. This means that a single soldier can launch multiple Drone40s with different payloads to attack enemy targets in a targeted manner.

The other side of an inch has its strength is that it has its strength. The Drone40 also has a "congenital defect" -- it often flies out of the operator's sight on longer missions alone.
