Drones, even more protagonists in the upcoming war

Il Tactical Resupply Vehicle TRV-150 represents a turning point in the field of military logistics: drones are used to resupply front-line units.

With the declaration of Initial Operational Capability (IOC) last October 27 at the Marine base in Hawaii, the first six systems were delivered underlining that the USA is ready to use the system for logistics missions in advanced and “hot” operational contexts.

The TRV-150 is an autonomous drone with vertical take-off and landing capability, a cruising speed of almost 110 km/ha maximum autonomy of over 70 kilometersa flight time of 36 minutes and – most importantly – a maximum load capacity of 68 kilograms. The UAV has been tested in various environments, from arctic to scorching climates.

Beyond the possibility of resupplying troops on the battlefield, the carrying capacity of well 180 chili of the superior model, the TRV-400 (photo below), does not make the regular use of drones for operations far away Medevac (“Medical Evacuation”, the transport of injured people or people in need of medical care, whether urgent or otherwise).

Oops… does the USA buy foreign products, in this case English?

With a still limited war underway (and a huge one in sight), the USA once again demonstrates its pragmatism: it does not waste time and money to develop at home, with dubious results and final costs (Italy docet…), a System already available among the Allies. A move that would favor only three subjects: the incapable, the profiteers and above all… the adversaries!
