Following the successful introduction of the Banshee Jet 80 in 2014, the Banshee Jet 80+ offers customers the opportunity to reach speeds of 200 metres/second with endurances exceeding 40 minutes at a market-leading price.
The current version is fitted with twin 45kg thrust gas turbine engines giving a total of 90kg of static thrust. This offers an increase in the maximum straight and level airspeed of up to 200metres/second. The use of an auxiliary fuel tank ensures that endurance is similar to that of the single engine version with a typical mixed throttle mission time in excess of 45 minutes. When fitted with the patented Hot Nose the target provides a forward and side-looking IR source with output in Bands I, II and III, whilst the jet engines provide a realistic rearward looking IR signature.
All other well proven augmentation devices traditionally available to Banshee can be fitted to this latest twin jet engine derivative.
