Turkey is armed with disposable kamikaze drones

31
Turkey has established mass production of kamikaze UAVs. This was announced by Deputy Minister of Defense Industry of Turkey Ismail Demir. According to the Turkish edition Daily Sabah, they have already begun to enter service.


Unmanned aerial vehicles of this type are very light and simple and cheap to manufacture. They are disposable, designed only for the delivery of the warhead to the enemy and undermining it.

Turkey is armed with disposable kamikaze drones

Launch drone ALPAGU


Three models of drones were launched into production, including the ALPAGU tactical drone unmanned aerial vehicle and two KARGU and TOGAN multi-rotor drone.

ALPAGU weighs 3,7 kg, can be operated by one soldier and strike within a radius of five kilometers, carrying out point attacks on moving objects as day and night. KARGU is very similar to it, but made in the format of a helicopter.

TOGAN is slightly larger, it weighs 7,5 kilograms, and can be used for reconnaissance and surveillance missions. The drone is able to automatically identify and classify moving or stationary threats and perform flight tasks without an operator, offline.

      That's how much I do not read about these technologies, the thought all the time leads to Boeings attacking the twin towers .... what

        And the Dutch “Ukrainian” Boeing was also filled with bodies in which blood did not flow from the wounds.

      the charge is too small, hit the standing target (with a rather poor result), and if in motion or the target is in the bushes - the probability of a miss will be significant, then you can get rid of the shock next to the package as well. :)

      ... No one-time money .. Apparently the emphasis is on ordinary UAVs (and there are none) soldier

      Israel reported kamikaze drones a year or two ago, the next kamikaze drones were launched by the broads in the B. East and the U.K.R.O. “warriors" (not to be confused with dropping grenades / bombs), now the Turks have seen their convenience.
      PS.
      There was an article here about how our people studied the captured UAVs in Syria, but they sent the analytics of their use to the Turks. wassat

      Very narrow application niche. You can’t return, the range is small. Power is so-so. Guidance system is a big question. To do this is not a problem. The problem is the need for it for us, subject to limited application. There are MLRS, artillery, anti-tank systems, etc. What is already ready for use. The noise immunity of the control system also raises questions hi

        It is possible to imagine a situation where at the exit they squeezed a group of special forces and hit them with mortars. It is impossible to call for support for one reason or another.
        And here such a drone weighing a couple of kilograms with 500 grams of explosives on board would be useful.
        Those. as you noticed - a narrow niche of application, but quite necessary.
        Also, when equipped with appropriate equipment, it was a good tool against snipers.

    In my opinion, the war in Syria, and the "Kurdish question" made significant adjustments to the development of many types of weapons, which they had not paid attention to before, take the same SUVs with machine guns, or even bigger! !!

      It is more from poverty. The crew protection is zero.

    Against such a misfortune, today I see only two antidotes ... EW systems and interceptor drones.

      two antidotes ... EW systems and interceptor drones.

      But will these "antidotes" help if a missile is launched with a cluster warhead equipped with dozens (and then hundreds) of "thrush" microdrons? Si-ko-ko need interceptors one instantly? Hope for EW? Well ... And if, out of dozens (hundreds) of simultaneously emitted microdrons, only a part is activated for immediate combat use, while others "fall by a stone" and are activated later, with a series delay?

        I think against the swarm of such micro-drones, the complex operation of several electronic warfare systems will be effective, and one of them will be similar to say RTUT ...
        As for interceptor drones ... why not? Another question is how such interceptors will detect adversary drones.

            simpler than steamed turnip:
            - All drones that do not match their characteristics with their own are the enemy.
            Naturally, the interceptor drone has a list of its own.
            Characteristics (comparison criteria) can be any, individually or collectively. Appearance, sound, and more
            But this is a dead end branch. It is not worth fighting the rain by catching each drop individually. To do this, use an umbrella. Or destroy the source - disperse the clouds.

              Yes, you're right - only "dispersal of clouds", the destruction of the source of drones allows you to protect yourself from them. A drone air defense (flying) will already be for the completion of single erupted. You can recall the defense of Moscow or London from raids - only the destruction of the airfields from which the Germans took off for bombing "helped". We pushed the front line, and the British had already crushed the masses of their aircraft, but before the surrender, the Germans would still throw in the FAA.
              So it’s necessary to have your own “fleet” of UAVs that will “push” the enemy to a distance from which the launch of anything can be intercepted in a safe zone for themselves.
              Although such a thing itself is now extremely dangerous and effective. It’s like the first ATGMs from which then there was no protection at all.
              Rossi has only one chance to “defeat” the United States in the UAV war - right now, start paying for the use of such “homemade goods” by all kinds of Taliban, etc. against american troops !! To force the Americans to "request for mercy" and agree on chemical and nuclear weapons in due time.

          EW will not help since two-way communication, with a combination of autopilot.

      If for special forces - the price will not play a role, especially since they do not need much.

      You are not considering the situation correctly. Electronics is getting smaller and cheaper, which means that with bulk orders (from millions) the cost will go to the rocket itself. And now we’ll count “what we’ll pay for”: imagine that several hundred of these pieces “blew” into LDNR with the “north wind” and they began to use them - for the ukrovermaht, I will tear the squadrons of law enforcement officers from the front line. Because it really will be life with an eye on it 24 hours a day and we won’t get out of the dugouts. Even "go for little things" can turn into the arrival of a "chyumodan". So the "bad dumb", and that the cost of each such UAV can be at least under 50.000 bucks - it does not matter. Most of the shells and missiles used in the war flies "into the white light."
      Well, the last; the strike group goes to the attack position, they notice it and begin to water from all that is HERE - dozens of such “missiles” fall from the sky and the defenders no longer have the minimum calculations, neither the machine gunner, nor the BMP. Well, how do you like this “math”? good

    You won’t get down on such a bike! You can only tear yourself away from a fast motorbike. Or if you have a hole to dive into it quickly. You don’t even know which side it will fly from. Now both from the ground and from the air.

    This surprises me, everything is simple, but they are not in the arsenal of Russia. It’s just that our hucksters don’t take up such cheap work where there is no 300% profit is not a topic!

    Very promising direction. Something does not hear about similar in Russia. Or has the Russian land become scarce on talents? Did it all go off the whistle? I’ll be surprised at what ... indeed, in Russia a young man will go to the bazaar (manager, merchandiser and other village men) rather than cowards rather than a designer ... The country is dissipating the stupidity of its "elite".
