The drone is equipped with fully functioning Kalashnikov AK-47 housed inside a set of wings, with the gun's barrel jutting menacingly from the front, according to The Moscow Times.
The 23-kilogram drone is capable of flying for 40 minutes and staying aloft while shooting. The drone is equipped with an autoloading Kalashnikov rifle with a 10-round, box-type magazine.

The drone can continue to track a missed-target without the need to manually adjust its flight path, the aviation institute said.
