Feihong 98 took off in China - a drone based on a copy of the Soviet An-2

54
China continues to successfully use Soviet equipment and modernize it, creating new models. October 16 2018 in Baotou (Inner Mongolia Autonomous Region of China) made its first demonstration flight unmanned aerial vehicle Feihong 98 (FH-98), created by engineers from China Aerospace Science and Technology Group Co., Ltd. based on the Shifei Y-5B lightweight multi-purpose aircraft, which in turn is a licensed copy of the Soviet An-2 aircraft.


Feihong 98 took off in China - a drone based on a copy of the Soviet An-2


The new Chinese drone Feihong-98 (FH-98) is positioned as a dual-purpose drone with a tonnage 1,5, which can be used not only for cargo transportation, but also as a medical drone or in disaster management. The developers plan to obtain an airworthiness certificate for it and start production in small batches from 2019. Maximum take-off weight - 5250 kg., Payload - 1,5 tons, maximum cargo hold - 15 cubic meters, flight height - 4500 meters, cruising speed - 180 km / h, practical range - 1200 kilometers, takeoff length - 235 m (at maximum take-off mass), i.e. almost the same performance as the An-2.

The licensed copy of the An-2 Shifei Y5B aircraft made the first flight in the 1957 year and continues to be mass-produced in China today.

        unmanned passenger aircraft.


        They have chosen an inexpensive platform and are trying to understand in which direction to move, what questions arise. Well done, what do you say. Something tells me that the first artificial brain will speak Chinese. And this will be a leap in aviation worse than a jet engine, locator and missiles. It’s great to change the appearance of a glider if there is no pilot.

        As for the inexpensive An-2:
        Gasoline - B91 (dollar-liter)
        Consumption - 180 kg / hour
        Oil - MC20, about 9 l / h
        The ASh-82P engine, which needs an experienced technician.

      Yes, I have the impression that such drones are more practical than unmanned vehicles - there is less travel in the air, theoretically purely programming it, for example, for daily flights from the city to the village of Kukuyevo ... It’s possible, but saving on a pilot is not a penny, you need to learn the pilot first and it’s expensive.

        gee ... I would not want, and so wounded, to fly without a pilot in a bookcase ... kill me on the spot ... rather, this contraption under a combat drone is being done, perhaps a "kamikaze", but what is cheap (relatively) and the cargo is decent (explosives and submunitions), and can fly "belly on the ground."

      The meaning is this: the Chinese are hinting that the design of the AN-2 (designed by true professionals and verified for decades) is perfect and provides all the required characteristics. A good result without risks and at a minimum price (i.e. without cutting a boble).

      If the control system works, then it makes a lot of sense. Especially given the landing of the aircraft on a landing gear with a tail support. Even a person needs the ability to land such an aircraft.
      Several times I heard from the flyers: "He who has not flown on the An-2 is not a pilot."

    From the series cheap and cheerful. Development of technology and methodology of ersatz pilots. Today is AN-2, tomorrow MIG-17, after tomorrow MIG-29, conditionally. For a one-way flight, the technology itself is a machine from storage depots to break through enemy air defense.

    It would be interesting to compare the tactical, technical and economic indicators of the Chinese "corn truck" with a modern development of a similar carrying capacity. I remember that PO-2 light night bombers were in great demand.

      Then radars were much less common. To date, the use of this type of aircraft will only lead to their mediocre loss.

      It is especially interesting to compare with the Tomahawk. The speed of the An-2 is certainly lower, but 1,5 tons of explosives compared to the "ax" is impressive, well, with the rounding of the relief, everything is fine at SUCH speed, even quieter to make the engine and a masterpiece. Now they will say - it is a miracle that they will shoot down! Maybe! But we also shoot down the Tomahawk, but the price, especially in the Chinese version! But the motor needs to be changed!

    Last year I went to my sister in Kazakhstan. There, almost every state farm has its own AN-2, however, there are other aircraft with a mono wing. Aircraft are in storage between seeders and combines. It’s cheaper to buy a plane, and in summer to hire a pilot during crop processing. This is me to the fact that those who need, do not stand up for the price of gasoline.

    The licensed copy of the An-2 Shifei Y5B aircraft made the first flight in the 1957 year and continues to be mass-produced in China today.

    So we need to revive An-2, having modernized a bit. Yes, and in an unmanned, cargo version, it would not hurt.
