Unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs), including heavy reconnaissance drums, are undergoing flight tests in Russia, they will end in a few years, RIA said News on Monday, the vice president of the United Aircraft Corporation (UAC) for combat aviation Sergey Korotkov.


Currently, four companies are operating in Russia to create unmanned aircraft complexes: MiG, Sukhoi, Simonov Design Bureau and the Kronstadt group. They are developing a line of reconnaissance-impact UAVs weighing from one to 20 tons.

UAC: tests of domestic UAVs will be completed in a few years


At different times, work has begun (on the creation of various UAV complexes - approx.), But now, approximately, at one stage are (drones). Created samples, they fly today, confirm the characteristics that they identified. I would say, successfully for today
- said Korotkov during the work of the international aerospace exhibition Dubai Airshow 2017.

According to him, when creating a UAV, many questions arise that are not related to the UAVs themselves, but, “for example, with air traffic control”

These are generally the problems of the whole world. Our colleagues from America also solve these issues at the highest level for ten years.
- noted the vice-president of UAC.

We are now talking about the creation of an unmanned aircraft system
- stressed Korotkov. According to him, in the interests of the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation, UAVs weighing more than 10 tons are currently being built.

      Soon, only cats will be born. Reliable UAV control, the most difficult problem. The drone is worthless, control of which can be intercepted or disrupted.

      On Saturday morning, Israel shot down a Syrian “drone” of Iranian production (presumably a Mohajer-4 UAV) with the PATRIOT air defense system, spending about $ 3 million to destroy a drone worth $ 400-600 thousand.

        AND? And for our military in Syria, AK-47 terrorists shoot, which cost $ 700 with bullets that cost $ 1.

      If I were the president, I would build a training ground somewhere far from cities, one hundred small hangars with workshops, in each hangar a group of young people, ten people.
      In two years, at least twenty out of a hundred groups will do something interesting.

      And the way this is being done with us now, rather, the second coming will come sooner.

    Yes, all the same, the lost time makes itself felt in the 90s and 00s ... now it is necessary to catch up with the USA and China and Israel .... well, taking into account our experience in aircraft manufacturing, I think we’ll catch up and overtake.

      This is not the first time I have met comments, here is de Gorbachev, Yeltsin, 90s, Mr. Lord, look at the calendar, we are already almost in 2018!
      The problem is in modern government, there is no ambition, there are no national ideas, there are no people with ideas.
      Crisis of managerial personnel, agenda number one.

    Losing time and money. It has long been necessary to buy Chinese, they quietly dig Western technology, and when we buy from them, we legally acquire these technologies. And it’s not necessary to buy at all, we have so far to offer barter. Nothing of the road will come of our own; all the others have gone too far ahead. An example of AvtoVAZ - if it weren’t for Renault, they would still ride in nines and dozens.

      Why buy? We must also dig, already with the Chinese. Congenial!

    This development has already been going on for about 10 years. We bought, shot down, disassembled, assembled. Understood the principle and forward. Sawing all that?

    A week ago I watched Mikhalkov's Besogon. Only 15% of Sukhoi and Mikoyan shares belong to the state, and the remaining shares to representatives of enemy states. And this applies not only to these two enterprises.
    There is no excuse for this lag. 3-4 years ago, the Persians planted the Amer UAV and based on it made their own. Even the Arabs have their own drummer. I am sure what is happening at our enterprises, ordinary sabotage, of interested states.

      Only 15% of Sukhoi

      You do not confuse GSS with Sukhoi AOA .. UAC almost completely owns the shares of Sukhoi and Ilyushin .. And dada in the GSS, the share of Italians sharply decreased after the capitalization of the company.
