Armenia displays fresh loitering munitions at Abu Dhabi expo

The Armenian defense industry showcased new loitering munitions for the first time during the IDEX 2021 exhibition in Abu Dhabi, Shephard Media reports.

Privately owned company Pride Systems exhibited two models of its own design at the show: a fixed-wing drone with variable-sweep wings and a pentacopter (pictured).

Both compact drones can be armed with high-explosive or high-explosive antitank warheads.

The report comes days after pictures from the Abu Dhabi IDEX-2021 International Defense Exhibition & Conference emerged showing the Armenian pavilion empty. The country's Ministry of High-Tech Industry explained later that the delay was allegedly due to logistical problems during transportation.
