LLC Kronstadt Group published an official photo of the first prototype of the Orion unmanned aerial vehicle, which is currently being tested, reports bmpd.


The first prototype of an Orion unmanned aerial vehicle developed by Kronstadt Group LLC.

The resource recalls that "work on the creation of the Orion UAV within the framework of the experimental design work (R & D)" Pacer "is carried out by the Kronstadt Group (Sankt-Petersburg; before Trans 2015 was called Transas))" .

"Orion" refers to the class of medium-altitude BLA long duration of flight. It is assumed that the maximum duration of its flight will be at least 24 hours, and the ceiling - about 8000 meters.

Reference bmpd: “In October, the 2011 of the year, the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation concluded a contract with the Transas company for the creation of a reconnaissance drone weighing about 1 tons. In 2015, at MAKS-2015, the former president of the Transas group of companies Nikolay Lebedev reported that the actual take-off mass of the Orion UAV is 1200 kilogram, the payload mass is 300 kilogram. According to known data, flight tests of the first prototype of the Orion UAV were launched in the spring of 2016. ”

      The Russian military UAV is equipped with a Canadian engine and ..... Enough?
      Why is a UAV weighing 1 ton with ridiculous capabilities and a strike version with a range of about 250 km in real time, if it can be ten times smaller and manage, for example, MLRS with a close radius of destruction?

        Then, that there is an LCD on it, it is more efficient to control artillery fire. And the shock version is not needed at all.

      Thank God, they waited. good Let's run it faster and forward to the troops. The country has been fighting in Syria for the third year, not a single drone, We drive planes and helicopters, burn kerosene, and lose pilots.

        The proxy and his comrades-in-arms of the Israeli propaganda department, 3 weeks after the Dagger, finally crawled out with the whole crowd, crap and jump on VO))). You can check the clock with it, it can take weeks to crawl out after some events, and at the command of the whole crowd get out for XNUMX hours on VO, then something is being prepared by the Zionists))

          You can troll the Professor and all the God-chosen people as much as you like, but you still have to admit that in terms of creating a UAV, such a small and not quite super aviation power like Israel has walked us many steps forward

      All aircraft are similar, depending on the destination. Transporters,
      fighters, passenger ....., including UAVs, because they are created for a specific task. The laws of aerodynamics do not have a nationality.
      And to facilitate the tasks, any design bureau uses the available operating time of the "neighbors". This is a global practice. yes hi

          Of course, not absolutely everything. Different tasks and different weight characteristics - carry a different configuration and layout. But "classmates" tend to have a lot in common. An example of freight transport.
          - the fuselage has a cargo ramp (for loading or dumping cargo);
          - low fuselage position;
          - high location of the wing and engines (for landing on the ground);
          - high location of the tail (due to the presence of a ramp).
          - a chassis with the number of wheels providing a minimum specific load on the soil, etc.
          Now let's look at the similarity of aircraft of this type:
          An-12 and S-137 and A-400, IL - 76, An-124 and C - 5, etc.
          Different design bureaus, but they make very similar planes. hi

          the nose is the same in both photos ... it’s just on the second one ...
          Space, on a cut, light rays do not directly fall, as well as dark reflection on anything. from an object that is lit from the opposite side.

      It looks like it’s not like that, its characteristics are closer to the Hermes 900, but it looks a bit like a Hermes 450, but Orion’s completely different profile swam and the retractable chassis ... and so, from afar, at night and from separate angles ...

    This is just a patrol DRON with the ability to deliver a limited strike on terrorists and criminals in peacetime. And for these purposes, Orion fully justifies its price. It is most effectively used to protect borders: you can close areas with inaccessible terrain.

    Since when did GMZ Agat OJSC become a Canadian company, and the APD -110/120 engine became Canadian? Don’t you stop raving? And I may surprise you, but you brought data on Orion-E, that is, the export version. In addition, the range of 250 km is increased with the help of repeaters. Read less Wiki, there they write the same experts as you.

    He successfully bombed the landfill with bombs. This is a multi-purpose device, both reconnaissance equipment and strike weapons can be installed on it.

    As far as I know now, only one Russian UAV (in metal) can carry the Orion LCD, but it weighs far from 50 kg.
