Kalashnikov is undoubtedly best known for its AK-47, but these days the Russian manufacturing giant has its fingers in all sorts of pies. Joining a hoverbike, an electric all-terrain motorbike and a retro-inspired electric car in its portfolio of future-focused projects is a sacrificial military drone designed crash into the ground, taking targets down remotely with it on impact.

   The fixed-wing drone was developed together with fellow Russian aerial vehicle outfit Zala Aero Group and has been dubbed KUB-UAV. Describing it as a "high-precision attack unmanned aerial system," Kalashnikov says the aircraft is designed to remotely destroy ground targets by delivering a presumably explosive 3-kg (6.6 lb) payload to a set of coordinates or an imaged target.
