Default RAN Unmanned Aerial Vehicles - UAVs

The RAN has taken its first minor steps in acquiring rotary wing UAVs. These are seen as vital for future capability development.
The navy has previously operated Scan Eagle but most new ships are planned to embark either 2'helos or more likely 1 x MH 60R and possibly Fire Scout.

A smaller UAV such as the Schiebel could also Extend the reach of the future OPVs
