The Polish military will soon have “Bee” drones’ accompanying its “Wolverine” (Rosomak) armored personnel carriers.

A Polish firm says it has developed incredibly tiny drones that can fly on battlefields for 30 minutes. WB electronics adds that its “Bee” drones don’t just offer surveillance capabilities — they can attack small targets with explosive charges.

“There is no other head this small in the world with two in-built cameras and which is also electromechanically stabilized by a gyroscope in two dimensions. This is an absolutely unique solution,” the company’s Director For Research and New Technologies Wojciech Komorniczak told Reuters on Tuesday.

WB electronics teamed up with another firm, Optimum, to develop the drone’s offensive capability. Once the drones are close enough to their targets, they can explode.

“This is about a communications system, which will operate very well in battle conditions despite dense urban development,” Mr. Komorniczak said, Reuters reported.

The “Bee” drones work on networks provided by the Polish military, Mr. Komorniczak added.
