German Navy starts Skeldar V-200 tests

19th August 2020 - 16:30 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


The German Navy is conducting static and dynamic shipboard tests of the Skeldar V-200 VTOL UAV on the corvette Braunschweig.

Social media posts from senior serving officers showed two V-200s (known as the Sea Falcon in German service) being winched aboard the German Navy vessel.

In August, 2018, the German defence procurement agency BAAINBw announced it was buying Skeldar V-200s for deployment on the Braunschweig class.

Data from Shephard Defence Insight shows other  European orders from Belgium and the Netherlands (six apiece, confirmed last month), as well as Norway and Spain (two each).
