Ariete can launch UAV from the 120mm gun


Recommended Posts

I suspect it occupies a space normally held by a round though.

 

Also presumable somewhere in the vehicle is the UAS's controller / data link?

 

If all that is in a different vehicle then that C2 vehicle might as well launch it. Given the range presumably the launcher can be in dead ground, doesn't need to be under armour, etc.?

Loitering munitions come to mind.

 Loading it with HEAT or ICM capable of taking out an armoured vehicle, would mean it wouldn't have much of a loiter time. maybe at most 3-10 minutes before batteries run too low. 

it'd probably be better paired up with artillery or mortars for precision guidance of artillery fire.
