The Kalashnikov Group put a model of its miniature exploding drone on display this week at a major defense exhibition in Abu Dhabi, the capital of the United Arab Emirates, where the world’s arms companies gather every two years to show off and market their latest wares.

The KUB is four feet wide, can fly for 30 minutes at a speed of 80 mph and carries six pounds of explosives, the news release says. That makes it roughly the size of a coffee table that can be guided to explode on a target 40 miles away — the equivalent of a “small, slow and presumably inexpensive cruise missile,” according to a report by the National Interest website.

Whoever buys one will have the ability to steer a bomb with a high degree of accuracy unparalleled except by some of the U.S. military’s smartest bombs, said Nicholas Grossman, a professor of international relations at the University of Illinois and author of the book “Drones and Terrorism.”

We knew this was coming. I'll bet DARPA is ahead of them on this ...

Azerbadjan used a Israeli Harop loitering ammunition to kill Armenian troups inside a bus. Can be used automat or human in the loop.

Damn right there is.

Browning BPS.

I've had one for about 20 years now. It's a turkey killing machine. I'm sure it would do a number on small drones as well.

Ithaca mag 10 works well too... 2 1/4 Oz of lead does tend to break things.

6 POUNDS of explosives is going to have a pretty good kill radius, likely equal or greater than 10 gauge bird shot. Add in that it's likely coming in at a 60-80 degree dive at twice or more of that 80mph cruise speed and the chances of your bird gun stopping it are nil, even if you did somehow manage to hear it, react, and hit it.
