According to several sources, the armed defendtex D40 drone can be linked with other drones and can carry out the swarm attacks. It will have a devastating effect on the enemy. We don’t know yet how this sync gonna happen, but if it does, then this tech is definitely going to be very useful for defense forces.

There is no certainty as such till now; we only have to wait to see what exactly other options are available by the company. But, it would be really cool to see the tech like this available in multiple formats.
Flight Duration & Range
As it is getting launched in the air by the launcher itself, no battery power is consumed in its take off and which allows it to have a better flight time. It gives you the 20mins of loitering and 12mins of flight time, which is really decent considering its capability of carrying the different payloads.
Apart from having a decent flight time, it also gives you the long-range access, which is around 10km. As, these kinds of drones are mostly going to be used in defense technology, having a good range like this changes the game. For more information, you can visit here.
