Toward the end of June the Argentine Air Force announced its first independent unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) programme since the cancellation of the SARA project, which had pooled the resources of all three services. The Vigia 2A is a medium-altitude, long-endurance UAV controlled by a Cloud Cap Piccolo II autopilot that can handle take-offs and landings. It also has satellite and radio datalinks. The UAV is powered by a Japanese twin-cylinder HKS 700E engine that produces 60 hp at 6,200 rpm for three minutes for take-off, 56 hp continuously at 5,800 rpm, and can handle a payload of 50 kg.
