Director of the design office "BP-Technologies" (part of the "Helicopters of Russia"), Alexander Okhonko, said that in Russia began testing a multi-purpose drone VRT300


Russian Helicopters began testing the multi-purpose VRT300 UAV


To date, we have defined the functional appearance and technical requirements for this helicopter, and also carried out a great deal of work on the selection of suppliers for the main systems and units of the VRT300. The beginning of bench tests is a kind of reference point, and if everything goes according to plan, then by the end of the year we will come out for flight design tests.
- he said.

Okhonko noted that all the components of the drone, except for the engine, are created and manufactured in Russia. He noted that the power plant for the VRT300 comes from one of the western countries. At the same time, the head of BP-Technologies emphasized that the company had initially abandoned the option of installing American or British engines in order to avoid possible complications in connection with the sanctions.

The VRT300 complex is being developed in two versions: Arctic Supervision - with side-looking radar for conducting ice reconnaissance and operation in the Arctic and Opticvision - with increased flight range for monitoring and remote sensing tasks. The mass of the target load drone - 70 kilograms, reports RIA News

          avoid possible sanctions complications
          - The USA will include our manufacturer in the sanctions list and everyone will abruptly refuse supplies

        Yes, the problem is that there is no goal to become independent, free, to build their factories, production, officials put bolts on everything, maybe wherever the river takes, there we will be.

      But without a foreign engine, this VRT can be used as soon as imagination allows.

        It’s not really a helicopter, it’s a toy. And that not only was designed in Georgia, but just a little redone from the serial American RotorWay Exec 162F. This was written by bmpd earlier: https://bmpd.livejournal.com/1319357.html

      China is an eastern country, not a western one.
      although in Russia the trend has gone to call everything imported Western.
      easier to call "from there"

    And I thought it would be dragged through the exhibitions for another 5 years. But it turned out after 5 years they remembered that the tests had not yet been carried out.

    We have dozens of models make such light! Why, as always, produce a variety of one-shot unnecessary things? For seven years, at least, we have been testing shock drones, feeding the army promises, more and more new models of shock drones have been massively tested for years! And the results are zero! !! The army today does not have what it has been promised for many years! !! Maybe it’s time to kick someone out, and actually plant someone to get a shock drone already tomorrow maximum? ???

    Either the fifth column above is enough, or the designers are lazy and do not want to work. We would not be dishonored even with the purchase of engines from the west, with the purchase of an engine for a simple drone. What has Mr Putin been doing for 18 years? we don’t know how to do drones, we cannot build corvettes, destroyers, aircraft carriers, we are building a frigate for several years. Why are you there in the Kremlin, have eaten pancakes from a shovel?

        But where did some unknown company get its own production. The designer is going to assemble from the details that the civilian market can provide, the software is bought and ready. Typically, such companies are headed by a worthy son of someone who will provide him with a fat contract for delivery to the state consumer.

          I'm more interested in what's with the RHV-35. He started flying in 2016 ... But he’s annoying that in Skolkovo there’s a bottomless pit of the budget ...

    Everything is fine. Made? Well done.
    But how long will this outrage with names continue? Why the hell did you use English abbreviations in the name? Here is this "VRT300" why? Could not be called in Russian? Not enough words? Yes, drop it! In Russian, that language did not find a word reflecting the essence of the thing? Sucks looking! Or are they thus trying to initially increase export potential? So you need to put it in the performance characteristics, and not in the name.
    It’s high time the world has been accustomed to the fact that the Russian language is and must be reckoned with. And you need to start with yourself.

        And the fact that imported components - but what to do? Anyway ... The Union’s electronic components base has been ruined for a long time - but it can somehow be restored ... but it’s still not lost ... I won’t speak for Russia, but for example, the Japanese use Belarusian chips themselves do not buzz - well, very satisfied. This is an allied backlog. I mean, they can if they want. We need a good such magical Pendel - immediately there will be motivation.

    Well. In the USSR, Gorbach and in Russia EBN destroyed and dispersed the enterprises producing small engines. Yes, a lot of things were destroyed. And Chubais - he is our inflexible! And how is it that the colonel attempted illiterate to organize! Was there not enough money for normal grenade launchers? And how to lay in an ambush for days in the mud - you had to learn from Thessaloniki ...

    The engine there is Rotax 912 or older, which already opens up great prospects for it. At MAKS I approached them at the stand and was curious of professional interests. And there people without a piece of paper could not even say the name, therefore they answered as intended: just fly. In my joke - how many people can just fly on it, even offended)

    I do not understand how the words
    the company initially abandoned the option of installing American or British engines in order to avoid possible complications due to sanctions
    coincide with
    "Okhonko noted that the innovative design bureau of the Russian Helicopters holding (part of Rostec) has the task, first of all, to develop and produce export-oriented products -" therefore, we are working to ensure that our devices comply with the requirements of foreign flight regulators, like European and American. "
    ? fool
    Excuse me, which of us is "balabol" here? If, on the one hand, the refusal of a spare part from the West is due to possible sanctions, on the other hand, is an adjustment to American standards. Here forgive the "classic" about cowards and a cross. I would like to ask right away - and the positioning system there is "whose whose, is it, our al-American?".
