The source explained that currently there are three models of reconnaissance and strike drones (RSD) “Chirok.” One of these is a mock-up copy, two others are full-sized models with a payload weight limit of up to 300 kilograms.

One of the full-size copies could be presented in summer 2015 during the International Aviation and Space Salon (MAKS), in Zhukovsky city, in the Moscow Region, the source said.
