India’s Hindustan Aeronautics Limited (HAL) has finally initiated the assembly of the much-anticipated RUAV-200 drone, marking a significant step forward after a two-year delay. The RUAV-200, short for Rotary Unmanned Aerial Vehicle, boasts a coaxial, rotary-wing design powered by a fuel engine. This “flying mule” is specifically tailored for high-altitude logistical operations, designated as LD (HA).

This project reflects a collaborative effort within India’s defence sector. HAL has partnered with the Defence Research and Development Organisation (DRDO) and the Indian Institute of Technology Kanpur (IIT Kanpur) to bring the RUAV-200 to fruition.

The RUAV-200’s ability to operate in harsh conditions with a significant payload capacity makes it ideal for logistical missions in India’s high-altitude regions. This drone has the potential to revolutionize supply chains in these challenging environments.

With assembly underway, anticipation is building for the RUAV-200’s maiden flight, expected later this year. This indigenous drone promises to be a valuable asset for India’s defence forces, particularly in border areas with extreme altitudes.

The RUAV-200 is designed with the following key features:

  • Max Take-off Weight: 200 Kg
  • Endurance: 3 hours
  • Operating Temperature Range: -35 to 55°C
  • Payload Capacity: 40 Kg
  • Max Range: 400 Km
  • Service Ceiling: 6000 m (ideal for high-altitude operations)
  • Reconnaissance and Surveillance: Equipped with an electro-optical day/night camera
