South Korea is developing the first indigenous tilt-rotor-type unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV), Defense Acquisition Programme Administration (DAPA) head Noh Dae-rae confirmed.

"We’re one of only a few countries in the world developing a tilt-rotor UAV," Dae-rae added.

The UAV will have the same vertical take-off capability of a helicopter and the speed and range of a traditional winged aircraft.

The aircraft is expected to be used to conduct reconnaissance missions.

Korea Aerospace Research Institute (KARI) will be working on the development of the tilt-rotor UAV, according to Yonhap News Agency.
