IAR-Brasov, a Romanian defence corporation, and Israel Aerospace Industries (IAI) have agreed on unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs). The collaboration agreement will allow the two firms to deliver UAV solutions in Romania based on IAI’s Tactical Heron. The unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) systems will be built in Brasov, Romania. In addition, IAI will create a school in Romania to teach system operators and technicians for UAV systems.


The Tactical Heron is a UAV that is primarily used by land troops for tactical battlefield missions. The UAV can carry out several missions with various payloads and is equipped with IAI’s technology. This UAV is a member of the IAI UAV family. It is designed based on IAI’s knowledge in the UAV field acquired over nearly 50 years.
