    "One drone in a formation flight will carry microwave weapons, including guided electronic munitions while another drone will carry radio-electronic suppression and destruction means and a third UAV will be armed with a set of standard weaponry. Each specific task is solved by different armaments," he said.

    "The use of microwave weapons is highly problematic for a plane with a pilot due to the need to preserve his life. But if we develop an additional system of protection against our own microwave weapons, we’ll lose even more space and the weight margin. Besides, even the most complex and effective system can be insufficiently efficient," Mikheyev said.

    KC390 complete world tour
    The KC-390, Embraer’s new multi-mission military transport and tanker jet, concluded a successful 40-day demonstration tour this week, during which it flew over 19 countries and was presented to nine nations in Europe, Africa, Asia and Oceania. In total, 130 flawless flight hours were recorded, including several demonstration flights with representatives of potential operators.
    [...]
    100% of availability throughout the tour, in which 52 landings were made in 18 different countries. In total, the KC-390 covered 49,537 nautical miles (91,743km), equivalent to more than two turns around Earth over the equator. During demonstrations, the aircraft was evaluated in high-temperature and high-altitude take-offs, in low-level navigation (flying at 120°F, or 49°C, ambient temperature) and in simulated operational conditions, such as paratrooper dropping.
    [...]
    This is a Brazilian Air Force (FAB) owned project, which hired Embraer in 2009 to develop the aircraft. The KC-390 test campaign is advancing in an extremely satisfactory way, meeting all aircraft requirements and validating all performance and capability objectives determined through the use of advanced engineering tools.
