Slowly but surely, I am working on a scenario involving Romania and Ukraine...
Please consider adding the following RQ-7 Shadow variant:
RQ-7 Shadow 600
Service dates: 1998-present
"AAI has also built a scaled-up Pioneer derivative known as the "Shadow 600". It also resembles a Pioneer, except that the outer panels of the wings are distinctively swept back, and it has a stronger Wankel engine, the UAV EL 801, with 52 hp (39 kW). A number of Shadow 600s are in service in several nations, including Romania." --Wikipedia
"AAI has delivered the six Shadow 600 unmanned aerial vehicles (UAV) to Romania which were part of a $20-million order package. The Shadow 600s delivered to Romania were loaded with an Infametrics package that weigh around 17kg and contains a daylight color television camera and thermal imager. With a maximum load weight of 45-55kg, the UAV can carry two to three sensors simulataneously, such as the standard fit of a video recorder that permits the vehicle to be deployed beyond the line of sight from the ground control station (GCS). The Romanian Shadow 600s also includes a universal GCS that incorporates 226,000 source lines of software code."

"The AAI Shadow 400 and Shadow 600:
The RQ-7 200 is the only Shadow variant in service with the U.S. military. AAI Corporation (with limited success) also offered Shadow 400 and 600 variants. The Shadow 400 was proposed as a ship-based variant, with a hydraulic launcher and a net recovery system, designed to support naval operations. No production aircraft have been built and AAI is no longer offering this variant. The endurance of the Shadow 600 UAV is in the 12-14 hour range vs. 6 hours for the RQ-7A 200 variant and 9 hours for the RQ-7B 200. Other improvements include a more powerful 52 hp engine (the RQ-7 200 engine has 38 hp). A limited no. of Shadow 600 production aircraft were built and AAI is no longer offering this variant." -- http://www.bga-aeroweb.com/Defense/RQ-7-Shadow.html
Thanks for considering this one.
