Slovenia-based aerospace firm Pipistrel is to develop a version of its latest unmanned drone for the defense sector in partnership with unmanned aerial systems company C-Astral Aerospace.

Pipistrel’s hybrid-electric Nuuva range of cargo drones was launched last September, consisting of the Nuuva V300 — a design that aims to be capable of carrying a payload of up to 460kg (1,014 lbs) and the Nuuva V20, which will have a 20kg (44 lbs) payload capacity. The company said first deliveries of the V300 will take place during 2023.
