The IAI Scout (known in Israel by its Hebrew name ???? - "oriole") is an unmanned reconnaissance vehicle developed by Israel Aircraft Industries in the 1970s, As a competitor Israel turned into a Tadilan Mastiff. The project is led by Charlie Attali, David Harari and Michael Shaffer, all recipients of the 1981 Israel Defense Award.
In response to the Israeli military's growing interest in drones on the battlefield in the 1970s, IAI management eventually decided they were also interested in the concept. The Scout has a similar configuration to the Mastiff, with propulsive propellers and twin cantilever tails.
