Bulgarian army to acquire drone system by 2018: official
SOFIA, Nov. 30 (Xinhua) -- The Bulgarian army would acquire one unmanned aerial system consisting of four drones by 2018, the country's Air Force commander Major General Tsanko Stoykov said here on Wednesday.
The drones would have a flight range of 200 km and 10 to 15 hours of flight duration, Stoykov said at a public lecture in the Central Military Club.
Through the implementation of this project, Bulgarian Air Force would build a new air defense capability for monitoring and reconnaissance with unmanned aerial systems, Stoykov said.
This would help the army's involvement in activities such as participation in combat search and rescue operations, and the fight against terrorism, he said.[ Editor: 刘家铭 ]
