The United States government has donated two unmanned aerial vehicles "RQ-11 Raven" to the Bulgarian Army.

The total price of the drones amounts to USD 3 M, the daily Trud reported. Their primary purpose is for surveillance, but a weapon can also be mounted on them.

Similar vehicles were used by the US Army to track down high-profile terrorists, including Osama bin Laden.

That drone looks small and indefenceless. Nothing to worry about.

They cost $35,000 each. Where is the 3 million USD number coming from?
