The HCMC transport drone successfully landed on the HMS Prince of Wales, a significant Royal Navy achievement.
- Developed by W Autonomous Systems, it traveled between Predannack and the carrier's deck, delivering cargo.
- This aligns with the Navy's plan to use drones for ship-to-ship supply transfers, reducing helicopter reliance.
- The twin-engine drone carries up to 100 kilograms, covering 1,000 kilometers with Distributed Avionics' autopilot.
- These trials mark substantial progress in unmanned aircraft capabilities on the HMS Prince of Wales.
