With the clash between Azerbaijan and Armenia continues, a video has clearly captured a strike by a Azerbaijan Harop loitering munition on a Armenian target.

The canister launched Israeli IAI HAROP is a standoff loitering attack weapon system designed to locate and precisely attack targets.

The Electro-Optically guided HAROP is controlled via a two-way data link for full man-in-the-loop operation.

HAROP is powered by a rotary engine and is capable striking targets 200 km away and endurance up to 9 hours.


It carries a 16 kg warhead and can strike with an precision of 1 meter.

The HAROP is programmed before launch to fly autonomously to the target area and loiter in the area. A live video image relayed back to the operator is used to track and attack the target.

The HAROP dives on to target detonating the warhead upon impact. If required the attack can be aborted.

Azerbaijan has widely used its HAROP fleet to strike several Armenian targets including tanks and Army trucks.

Multiple Azerbaijan HAROPs were also shot down by Armenian Air Defense units.
