The Chiefs of the General Staff Vice Admiral Themistoklis Burolias, Lieutenant General Charalambos Lalusis and Vice Admiral Stylianos Petrakis got acquainted with the exhibits in the premises of the pavilion.

The VTOL UAV of the Architas program is based on a fixed-wing platform of the class of large-scale tactical drones. According to EAB, the configuration of the UAV fuselage and power plant has now been completed. The internal placement of electronics, payload, fuel tank, auxiliary vertical takeoff and landing systems, etc. has been completed.
