Checked in the tube. TsAGI is completing dual-purpose UAV tests

TsAGI, wind tunnel


The tests are carried out in the subsonic wind tunnel T-101, transmit RIA "News". Chevagi noted that he could not disclose data about the customer of the test or report any details of the project.

A tailsitter is a vertical take-off and landing vehicle capable of landing on the tail, performing horizontal flight “in an aircraft-like” manner. The development of a dual-purpose aircraft, tailing the Pheasant, became known in December 2016. It was reported that the take-off mass of the drone will be up to 500 kg, cruising speed - about 350 km per hour. The rotax912 XHUMX horsepower engine will be used as the power plant.

A similar device is being developed in the USA. According to media reports, testing of sea tailsters, which Northrop Grumman is working on, is scheduled for the beginning of 2018. Such a machine is convenient to use on ships equipped with helipads.

          laughing Well, I don’t know about what.
          Chevagi noted that he could not disclose data about the test customer or provide any project details.
          By the method of scientific poking, provided that the apparatus weighs up to 500 kg and vertical take-off, the mass of the combat load is likely to be up to 100 kg. request

    An interesting drone ... only with a mass of 500 kg it will probably not be a strike, but only a scout ...

    How good it was before. Nobody knew anything before the adoption of technology in service. Now everything, from the general designer to the test driver, upload their comments and photos on the Internet. Do we have anything left from special departments?
