Israel Buys More Drones From Elbit

The Israeli military is buying , for $50 million, more Hermes drones from Elbit Systems. While many of these will be Hermes 450’s, some will be Hermes 900, updated versions using the same command and control system as the Hermes 450 . See youtube video of Hermes 900 flight here.

There is no doubt some of the development of the Hermes 900 was stimulated by the billion pound deal with the UK to build the Watchkeeper drone, based on the Hermes 450.
