Its propulsion consists of two turbines operated autonomously by the onboard electronics of the target drone itself. The power of this configuration provides the SCRAB II with remarkable flight capacities, reaching speeds of up to 120 m/s.

The SCRAB II target drone can be used in missions that include the use of different types of weaponry, including, among others, STANDARD, HAWK, ROLAND or IRIS-T missiles. On the other hand, the system is prepared to accept a wide variety of payloads.
