The article reviews knowledge about requirements for engines in state-of-the-art unmanned aerial vehicles and tanks. Analysis of design and operational parameters was carried out on selected turboshaft and piston engines generating power in the range of 500 - 1500 kW (0.5 - 1.5 MW). The data was compared with the performance of innovative, barrel type piston engines, which are likely to become an alternative drive solution in the target vehicle groups.
