The BAS-200 unmanned helicopter has a maximum take-off weight of 200 kg and a flying speed of 160 km/h. It can be used for terrain monitoring, cargo, search and rescue and agricultural operations. The aircraft can carry a payload of up to 50 kg and fly for 4 hours at an altitude of 3900 meters. The ground control complex can communicate with drones within a range of 100 kilometers. The Mil&Kamov National Helicopter Center (Mil&Kamov) is responsible for its project development and flight testing.

The VRT300 unmanned helicopter is designed by the Russian helicopter company VR-Technology. It has a maximum take-off weight of 380 kg, a payload of 70 kg, a maximum flight speed of 130 km/h, and a range of 325 km. The actual flying height of the aircraft can reach 5800 meters, and the battery life can be as long as 5 hours. It can be used for terrain monitoring, cargo, forest protection, search and rescue and agriculture.
