The Serbian government has set in motion plans to make 5000 kamikaze drones called “mosquito” which come with a warhead in the front of the fuselage.

During a recent tour of the Military Technical Institute, President Aleksandar Vučić reviewed kamikaze drone prototypes including the “Mosquito” drone of which the goal is to have 5,000 such UAVs - the President of Serbia said.

The mosquito drones are said to feature an aerodynamic body to aid their quick flight to the target. They can loiter and be called back to  base if the target is not acquired within their endurance time.

Another drone presented to the President was the “Vrabac,” a shorte range UAV used for reconnaissance and surveillance missions at distances of up to 25 km.

During the visit, President Vučić took the opportunity to request speeding up the development of UAVs and stressed that the government would invest more money to hire additional staff to make sure that these UAVs enter service by the end of the year.
