China "swung" at the creation of UAVs with a carrying capacity of more than 20 tons

33
New Chinese company Tengoen, specializing in the creation of unmanned aerial vehicles, announced the beginning of work on the creation of a drone with a record carrying capacity. It is assumed that he will be able to deliver tons of payload to 20 kilometers to 7500, reports dronelife.com


China "swung" at the creation of UAVs with a carrying capacity of more than 20 tons


Stated that it will be an eight-engined drone, with a wingspan of more than forty meters. The drone fuselage is supposed to be made of carbon fiber to reduce the overall weight of the structure.

Currently, the technology demonstrator is already being manufactured at Tengoen's Chengdu factory. It is expected that for the first time this huge transport drone can take off already in 2020.

The company Tengoen already have experience in creating drones, although it is mostly military drone drone. In contrast, the transport unmanned aerial vehicle under construction is intended for civil and transport markets.

    Surely the development of our engineers. For UAVs in the world, we are in the top three. And for heavy and superheavy there are no equal to us.
    When I worked at the factory, we also decided to make UAVs. But then they postponed it. Now I look at this model - it looks like our drawing ...

      This is sometimes seen on the comment spots from the cooling emulsion from a lathe. We plowed.
      By UAV in the world we are in the first three.

      By tryndyuzh you, personally, in FIRST place.

      A huge drone, the Buran, was already made in the USSR.
      And the Tu-95 may become a drone.
      There are many opportunities !!!

        Once even the MiG-23M became an attack drone.
        July 4, 1989. The USSR Air Force MiG-23M fighter flew from the Kolobrzeg airfield in Poland, but it suffered a temporary interruption in engine operation. After engine failure, the pilot catapulted, and an uncontrolled plane flew 901 kilometers over the territory of the German Democratic Republic, Germany, the Netherlands and Belgium and fell on a residential building near the Franco-Belgian border.

            The airplane was controlled by a political officer, and catapulted due to the appearance of smoke in the cockpit.

            How could he fly with a failed engine 901 km

            At the 41st second of the flight, a sudden decrease in engine speed occurred, the pilot noted a pop in the left air intake, a drop in thrust and a decrease in the aircraft. The spontaneous afterburner shutdown occurred perceived as an engine stop, informed the flight manager of his decision to eject and after receiving the appropriate command made an ejection.
            As shown by the data of the "black box", 6 seconds after the bailout, the engine began to gain momentum. The fighter stopped the decline, switched to horizontal flight.
            The pilot was a 1st class pilot, flew over 1700 hours, served as chief political department 239th Fighter Aviation Division in the Northern Group of Forces. On that day in the morning, he already made a control flight to restore the skills of piloting technique after vacation.

    And why is a drone a transporter. Such a shortage of pilots? Technology can always fail. The cost of cargo plus the cost of the UAV itself, and in which case it can fall where there are a lot of people.

      As practice shows, most of the broken sides were destroyed exclusively by their crews. The robot - such problems are mostly cured. As a last resort, it’s much cheaper to maintain a technical center where-thread in Shanghai - where remote control will be adjusted by remote control than 100500 pilots. For cargo UAVs, the future and in this future are actively investing money in the west and now in China.

        Very correct words. If in the era of auto = trailers everyone already believes and fears, then cargo UAVs are still a new area and the Chinese have no competitors. good Well done, they’ll not only provide for themselves, and the point here is not the “lack of pilots”, but rather the novelty and progressiveness. It is clear that the West will try to build obstacles for them to access its airfields, but even if they are hard-wired, they will be able to take revenge. good
        And to "unbelievers" I recommend finding an image of a spinning wheel or a "machine" on which weaving what the hell and finding a video of a modern weaving workshop laughing good . When one girl looks after a dozen if not several dozen automatic machines.
        So the “cargo UAV” is no longer fanatic, it is a harsh reality to which we (not believing in it) have survived. belay good

        20 tons of iPhones, iPads and other goods are loaded into it in standard containers and he carries them to the USA / EU. Cheaper than Boeing747Cargo.

        Really, why?

          Yeah, and in case of some problems (well, for example, you need to go around the route due to weather, or the airport doesn’t take it, or the local radio fans hammered the control channel) everything submerged quietly disappears ....

            Not. Rather, the pilot - who will ignore the testimony and will fly the plane along a faulty horizon, directly into the ground, more likely.

            Operations such as changing the route, withdrawing to another airport - have long been carried out. In particular, by the same Americans, and on this site every day there is news about how the heavy drone of the 4-6 watch revolved around the borders of the Russian Federation. And the radio channel - radio amateurs do not clog them, that's the trouble.

            The bottom line is simple - which thread center in Shanghai can drive hundreds of such cargo UAVs around the world, constantly solving problems, making adjustments, etc.

            Falls are inevitable. But how many planes have fallen before? How many now? There is always a chance to lose a plane and cargo.

              But actually, why should there be a fall? Few people know the same B-2, or even worse, the F-117 (flying iron) so generally flew exclusively thanks to computer control, otherwise this dermo simply was not able to stay in the air. It is also seen from the experience of Merikas - drives, a car flight by gps or even by inertial are quite worked out for themselves. good
              And what’s more important - the automation will exclude just the opportunity to “negotiate” and cram beyond measure. negative Which just leads to the main cases of not taking off and to the mess of trucks. Also remember the incident of a collision in Switzerland when their stupid person, the controller "stuck" our passenger side in an American truck? Here it simply will no longer be from the word at all !!! good When automation will decide, it will itself and unequivocally choose the option "to disperse" in advance.

    Damn, he imagined how this flying Kamaz collects grandmothers on hang gliders. Well, and, on Friday, I recommend a Chinese film in the "special attention zone" style with a ramming mirage in a jiffy.

      Dear, excuse me, people on the same C-130 can do something if grannies on hang gliders appear front from some kind of zdobula? The answer is yes, they will just “collect” them. Because for Smart people there are air traffic controllers and Zones !!! In which to poke around all hang gliders and other crap - FORBIDDEN !!
