Amebo-II: Made-in-Nigeria Unmanned Aerial Vehicle
Made-in-Nigeria rocket pod
I think its time to deploy this AMEBOS to BH and Militants infested areas, to test their effectiveness and further fine tune them.
Depends on their payload, although off the shelf cameras are relatively cheap, they could be effective in monitoring borders, demonstrations trouble spots etc
Dey shud build more of dis tings nd deploy dem 4 effective use in our borders nd d creeks in d Niger delta. I also thought dey wanna fit-in ammunition nd missiles in d UAV, dat wud go a long way in dealing wit terrorists in Niger, Chad nd Mali.
God Bless Nigeria.
Beegeagle I have photos of Amebo II and III as well as photos of the Air Force Special Forces team. How do I get these to you?
Naija de Great..a great Nigerian indeed. O’boy, how now? Come around more often.
I am ready to receive the photos
Mr Beegeagle, can u pls share wit us d capability of d Amebo nd if d rocket is being put 2 use
@Eniola. The technical details have yet to be released anywhere. Perhaps that is still classified.
@ OGA naija de great, send the images to ” firstname.lastname@example.org“. And the general would receive it.
@naija de great thanks a lot sir, please keep more coming.
That 2nd picture seems to be a Made-in-nigeria 250 to 270 kg bomb. Nice !!
I wonder if they came make cluster bombs ?
I don’t think its a bob it doesn’t look aerodynamic enough most likely and under wing rocket pod
Noo..these ones came from our new Air Marshal – JK. He has been following quietly for a long time but stepped up for recognition yesterday.
His hands are on the plough, I see.
The bomb in the foreground appears to be high explosive free fall type bomb, while the dark shade one in the background is certainly a sub-munition dispenser. General container for small-sized sub-munitions is designed to dispense small caliber bomblets and air deployed mines. The sub-munitions are placed in the dispenser in cartridges, carried in specialized slots. The dispenser doors are pneumatically actuated (other means can be fitted) to dispense the sub-munitions.
Free-fall bombs lack any guidance or control system. They follow a ballistic trajectory that is affected by the releasing aircraft’s speed and dive angle. The number in the designation refers to the bomb’s approximate weight (in kilograms). These bombs are effective against ground objects, equipment, defensive installations, bridges and fortifications. The airspeed at the moment of bomb release may be 500 – 1000 km/h.
Exactly xnurr44. Well said.
you mean the dark coloured one shebi?
It looks like a bomb but I couldn’t see any arming mechanism or a fuse, Oga JK can you light candle and shed some light please.
The Amebo drone looks like a recon drone. The mission profile will be interesting to know. Any info on the sensors payload, endurance, range?
Beeg. there was a “fair” organized by the NAF exhibiting indigenous hardware a couple of months ago. Do you have any info on this?
Are you talking about the Air Expo 2012 which held last May?
This was before the air expo. It was aired on NTA news. I’ve been digging around for details but I have been unsuccessful.
Nice nice PHEW I cannot leave this place for ONE FULL DAY ALL HELL BREAKS LOOSE!
