The Zeus Defense Industries UF-05 Sniper is a vertical take-off and landing (VTOL) unmanned combat aerial vehicle (UCAV) designated to operate from naval warships and small airfields. The goal of the UF-05 Sniper is to provide a surface warfare capability for naval ships that cannot provide adequate long-range strike capabilities, as well as to provide a capable VTOL UCAV for low-intensity conflicts from airfields slightly larger than a helicopter pad.

The UF-05 Sniper is capable of carrying out tactical reconnaissance missions, fire support missions, counter-insurgency (COIN) missions and other missions deemed necessary to carry out in modern combat. Able to carry a variety of payloads all in a single stealth Vertical Take-Off and Landing (VTOL) platform, it is designed to be survivable, lethal and quick in response. Furthermore, with a maximum payload of more than 1,500 kilograms, no exposed rotors and a service ceiling beyond 7,000 meters, the UF-05 provides the safety and flexibility to perform multiple missions necessary to gain victory upon modern warfare.

Z.D.I. UF-06 Bellerophon Unmanned Combat Aerial Vehicle
Unmanned and faster. Unmanned to take the skies. Unmanned towards victory.

The Zeus Defense Industries UF-06 Bellerophon is a twin-engine multirole unmanned combat aerial vehicle (UCAV). It is the first supersonic unmanned combat aerial vehicle that has seen EIDEF service. Unlike most UCAV's, the UF-06 Bellerophon was designed with air combat capability in initial consideration - with air combat capability defined as 'the capability to engage similar manned or unmanned fighters in its tier and shoot them down'.

The UF-06 Bellerophon is the result of years of development in Zeus Defense Industries, as the Greater Eastern Imperium Defense Forces searched for a highly capable unmanned combat aerial vehicle that can take the role of air superiority. This project, later called Project Bellerophon - the namesake of the UF-06 - was given to Zeus Defense Industries, while Kronos Aerospace Corporation was to build a high-altitude, hypersonic ISR aircraft that can go well beyond the stratosphere. The result of Project Bellerophon was the UF-06 - one of the first air superiority UAV to be within service of an air force. Making its first flight in 2012, the UF-06 Bellerophon made several achievements that became the pioneers of unmanned combat aerial vehicles, and made it into service with the Greater Eastern Imperium Air Force.

Thanks to advanced control systems, high thrust-to-weight ratio and high propulsion, the UF-06 Bellerophon has a maneuverability comparable to that of the MiG-29 'Fulcrum', though it may not employ thrust vectoring as of now. Capable of going beyond Mach 2 and with high maneuverability, the UF-06 can defeat fifth-generation fighters alongside allied fighters and even shoot down fourth-generation fighters on its own. The UF-06 Bellerophon is a critical component to future air power.
Variants

  • UF-06A Bellerophon: Standard UCAV.
  • RF-06 Pegasus: Surveillance variant. Fitted with surveillance pods and systems instead of combat sensors, though all of them are modular and can be swapped with armed combat systems and sensors.
