Silver Arrow Micro-V
The Silver Arrow Mini-V (originally named the Micro-V) is a small reconnaissance UAV developed in Israel in the 1990s.
It is powered by twin 3 kW (4 horsepower) piston engines, one in a nacelle on each wing driving a pusher propeller. It has no landing gear. The Micro-V appears to be too small to carry a full sensor turret, carrying a miniaturized imager in a transparent section built into the middle of its fuselage.
