The Darter AR-2 is a miniature remote-controlled quadcopter perfect for reconnaissance and surveillance. Darters are agile, silent and hard to detect. The ability to hover in one place and use the camera to observe a location is invaluable in setting ambushes. An OPFOR arms manufacturer was able to reverse-engineer the Darter's construction and now produces a similar vehicle. The OPFOR quadcopter is labeled as the Tayran AR-2.
The AR-2 Darter appears to be based on the "AR.Drone Version 2.0" manufactured by Parrot SA of France.
Despite being battery-operated, the AR-2 can "refuel" itself from civilian gas terminals or military fuel trucks.
The AR-2 is currently one of the two rotary-wing UAVs available in ArmA 3, while also being the sole Small Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (SUAV) of its kind that is compact enough to be deployed via a backpack.
