BAE Systems has unveiled the latest member of its Unmanned Autonomous System (UAS) family – Fury.

It shares a similar airframe and some vehicle system components with the HERTI reconnaissance and surveillance UAS, which was fielded by the UK last year.

Fury is an armed reconnaissance and close air support UAS and features latest generation mission systems avionics, a newly developed stores management system and a proven weapon guidance system.

Fury was developed and trialled in partnership with Thales UK's missile business.

It is armed with the new Thales Lightweight Multi-role Missile (LMM) system, which is small in size and builds on the heritage of combat proven munitions such as Starstreak and Starburst.
