At the same time, development of similar complexes, as a rule, required millions of investments and about five years, while "Horlytsya" is developed at the expense of the SE "Antonov". The drone was designed to help the Ukrainian Ground Forces conduct day and night reconnaissance in all weather conditions and transmit the received information to the command post.
