The MQ-12 Falcon is a rotary-wing Unmanned Combat Aerial Vehicle used by Pacific NATO forces.

Overview Edit

  • Role:
    • Observation
    • Laser targeting
    • Air-to-ground fire support
« This autonomous/remotely controlled helicopter drone is mainly used as close air support and can be deployed in the most dangerous zones thanks to its unmanned construction. The Falcon is equipped with a laser designator and can therefore handle surveillance, reconnaissance and target designation tasks. Its greatest strength, however, lies in its armament. It carries two rocket pods, each with 12 unguided rockets and six Scalpel air-to-ground missiles. MQ-12 Falcon can also use countermeasures for self-defense.

TriviaEdit

  • While the Falcon has no direct real-world equivalent, its purpose and capabilities are similar to that of Northrop Grumman's "MQ-8B Fire Scout" which is also an armed UCAV that was designed to conduct both surveillance and fire support duties.
  • On the other hand, both the fuselage and tail appear to be based on Boeing's cancelled "A160 Hummingbird" prototype UAV helicopter.
  • The Falcon is currently the only rotary-wing based UCAV of its kind in ArmA 3.
