ZALA is a Russian helicopter and airplane-type UAV manufactured in Izhevsk by ZALA AERO GROUP. They are mostly small in size, but there is also an airplane model with a wingspan of 6 meters and a range of up to 120 km.

After Russia's full-scale invasion of Ukraine, Zala Aero Group increased production and sells drones worth billions of rubles to the Russian Armed Forces. According to Russian media, the company imports Western components, using intermediary companies from Uzbekistan and other countries to circumvent sanctions.

The Zala Aero Group itself, as well as its owner Alexander Zakharov and his family members, are subject to Western sanctions.
