Ukrainian authorities captured a Russian spy drone in eastern Ukraine, security officials said on Friday.

The clunky aircraft has the look of a high-school science project gone bad. But Ukraine’s SBU security service claims it is a modification of Russia’s Orlan-10 drone that has 3D mapping and real-time battle monitoring capabilities.

It can carry a thermal camera for night vision, a stills camera, and a geo-stabilized video camera, depending on the specific build, the SBU said.
