The Airbus Helicopters VSR700 in an unmanned reconnaissance helicopter currently being developed by Airbus Helicopters (formerly Eurocopter).

Developed by Airbus, the VSR700 is based on the Cabri G2 light helicopter, developed and produced by Hélicoptères Guimbal. Airbus was awarded a contract by the French Navy toward the end of 2017. With a maximum take-off weight around 700 kg (1,500 lb), it is a larger aircraft than the Austrian Camcopter S-100 which the French Navy has trialled before.

The drone is designed to eventually deploy from Mistral-class amphibious assault ship, as well as from frigates.

The prototype VSR700 performed its first flight at a drone test centre near Aix-en-Provence, France, on 8 November 2019.

Motor: diesel, 155 HP. Max. speed 187 km/h
