Government official attends first show of Hungarian-developed drone

The development of the Hungarian Armed Forces is only possible with the development of Hungarian defence industry, the state secretary for defence innovation said on Monday, at the inaugurating flight of the first Hungarian-developed drone.

The ProTAR drone was developed specifically for defence purposes, and boosts the air defence capability of the country, Imre Porkolab said at the inauguration at an air base in Hajmasker, in western Hungary.

Zsolt Molnar, the CEO of developer Rotors and Cams, said the drone could fly in formation at a maximum speed of 500 km/h. It can fly at 6,000 meters high and operate for 60 minutes before needing to be recharged, he said.
