Australian defense technology firm DefendTex has developed a drone munition that can be fired from an M320 handheld grenade launcher, which is sure to increase the lethality of infantry troops in combat.

After being fired into the air, the Drone-40 transforms into a hovering quadcopter equipped with a camera that can be fitted with various payloads including high explosive fragmentation, smoke, fuel-air bomb, and anti-armor shaped charge.

The advanced ISR munition is said to be cost efficient and is capable of loitering for observation missions for 20 minutes, or 12 minutes of maneuvering flight time.
