The Ministry of Defense showed the flight of the latest drone Altius-U

The Ministry of Defense has tested the latest Russian Altius-U reconnaissance drone. The tests were held at one of the military test airfields, the press service of the military department.


The Ministry of Defense showed the flight of the latest drone Altius-U


The latest Altius-U reconnaissance drone made its first flight in fully automatic mode. The drone took off, performed maneuvers in the sky for 32 minutes, and then landed.

The flight took place for 32 minutes at an altitude of up to 800 meters in fully automatic mode at one of the test aerodromes. All systems of the complex worked normally

- it is spoken in the message of the Ministry of Defense.

As explained in the military department, Altius-U is the final appearance of a drone created as a result of the development and testing of a number of prototypes within the Altair project. The latest unmanned system is capable of performing the entire spectrum of reconnaissance tasks using optical, radio engineering and radar means and is in the air for more than a day.

According to available information, the mass of the device is about 6 tons (previously prototypes with a mass of 5 and 7,5 tons were tested). A distinctive feature of the new UAV is the ability to control it through a satellite communication channel, which makes the radius of its application practically unlimited.

        Given the constant fuss around this project, it may not even get into the troops!
        Russian Defense Ministry decided to close the development of the first Russian heavy attack drone
        According to Vedomosti, more than three billion rubles have been spent on the Altair project since 2011

          I remember reading somewhere that with Orion, everything was not going smoothly either. And he flies, and there is already ammunition for him. So I understand the series does not go until the Russian engine is ready. On Altius, the German engines also stand.

            APASUS, if that minus is not mine. And so I add that Altius has 2 diesel engines RED A03 / V12 turbocharged and liquid cooled in Germany. If anyone thinks that the drone will soon be sent into the army, then at least until they build a plant in Russia, this certainly will not happen.

          So it turns out they say it right. He is now not Altair, but Altius, and even “U” laughing
          But the news is positive, we fly and land ourselves, the control from the satellite (if true), then it’s generally wonderful, there are no restrictions on radio visibility.

          How can it be shock with such a mass? There are 3 tons of kerosene alone, of course, anything can happen, but I doubt something.

            What's the problem ?
            For 100% destruction of the target, 1-2 ATGM missiles are needed. For example, the mass of the Ataka 9M120 rocket in the TPK: 49,5 kg. So I don’t see any problems in this regard.
            Quote: Pajama
            There are one ton of kerosene 3,

            Two turbocharged diesel engines of 6 liters. The main thrust is spent only on take-off, the diesel engines are quite economical, they consume not much in flight mode. Where does 3 tons of kerosene come from, and where does it cost so much?

    Tell me, can he deliver air strikes against a handful of militants in the mountainous and wooded area in the North Caucasus and the desert? Or are our Rosgvardeytsy there, and aircraft controllers from the MTR in the Syrian deserts, will continue to take risks ?!
    If not, soon not only Ukraine, but even Somalia will have strike UAVs up to 5 tons.

      It seems to me that the question should be posed as follows: the Russian army needs UAVs. Shock, reconnaissance, reconnaissance and shock with different load capacities. Desirable cheap, easy to manage. Well, in a word, competently draw up TK.

        Captain obvious? Forgive me of course for the harshness. But didn’t they talk about this after 08.08.08? Everything is needed, all UAV classes. No brainer. But things are still there. As if a conspiracy inside Russia, so that it would not have the opportunity in the usual CTO to extinguish the bearded from above in green. Let the guys from the Rus squad run around the mountains and take risks. And our aircraft manufacturers in Syria. Who is responsible for this area? How many more years to wait? Even the bearded in Syria, our base in Khmeimim, attack, albeit artisanal, but shock UAVs.

          Well, it's only you who can quickly write comments. And try to create a project first, then calculate for all the loads, create an experimental model, blow it in all modes, then make changes to the design, re-work, then submit the project to the customer, accept his comments, make changes to the design documentation again, do everything again calculations and tests, getting confused with the engine drivers, making a full-size acting prototype, putting them to tests, etc., etc., etc. Try to make at least one of this and I think it will discourage you from whining "everything is lost"

      When we have a shock UAV in the class up to 5 tone, in the field against the bearded, they will already have a pocket electronic warplane "Stinger".
      If this is not a conspiracy against the Armed and police forces of the Russian Federation, then probably a curse. Why stupidly it was impossible to fall into these projects with all the design bureaus? It’s good that even in the class of heavy UAVs there are shifts. If only in a series, even a small one launched Hunter.

    Very glad, I would rather be in a series. But I repeat what was said on the next branch - the fate of the Yak-133 UAV is very interested. its shock version began to be tested on the Irkut in September 16th, I read the confirmation in January 17th and then silence. Who owns secret knowledge - respond! The car (family based on the Yak-130) is extremely promising.

      And they write that he has a unique aerodynamic design, which seems to have not been applied at all in world practice. This is true? What does he look like? A “delta” is drawn on the design bureau’s site, it has been hanging there for 10 years already. And on the net, the pictures are painfully left ...

    If not, soon not only Ukraine, but even Somalia will have strike UAVs up to 5 tons.

    Oh, yes, without a strike UAV with a satellite channel in the North Caucasus, of course, there is nothing more to strike :-)))

    It seems to me that the question should be posed as follows: the Russian army needs UAVs. Shock, reconnaissance, reconnaissance and shock with different load capacities. Desirable cheap, easy to manage. Well, in a word, competently draw up TK.

    Captain obvious? Forgive me of course for the harshness. But didn’t they talk about this after 08.08.08? Everything is needed, all UAV classes. No brainer. But things are still there. As if a conspiracy inside Russia, so that it would not have the opportunity in the usual CTO to extinguish the bearded from above in green. Let the guys from the Rus squad run around the mountains and take risks. And our aircraft manufacturers in Syria. Who is responsible for this area? How many more years to wait? Even the bearded in Syria, our base in Khmeimim, attack, albeit artisanal, but shock UAVs.

    And they attacked a lot with their shock UAVs?

    Very "admire" Hollywood lovers who see UAVs exclusively in the hit version. Stupidity is utter. Any UAV is 1000 times more effective just in the version of the scout and long-range reconnaissance. Anyone who knows how to hit the target can always be found, but getting reliable information about the enemy is far from always. Of the hundreds of thousands of flying hours of American UAVs, strike operations account for less than 1% !!!

        Learn to read and comprehend what you read. I think in Russian I wrote that I think it’s stupid that the commentators everywhere are fixated only on the drone’s shock capabilities. When intelligence functions overlap them a hundredfold in demand. And this is a world practice! Both the Americans and the Israelis (having a good arsenal of drone drone) are why they use aviation specifically for strike missions. Percussion functions are just not the next generation, do not write heresy. It is the level of the optical station, radar, interception equipment, and other capabilities to conduct deep reconnaissance - this determines the level of the UAV. Making flying crap with the possibility of launching ammunition is much easier than putting an ols and a side-view radar of the proper level. Therefore, the question for you, Hollywood lovers, is not the first time I ask, because I read everything from topic to topic in the comments.

          How much can this nonsense be repeated? To make radars and other "proper level" you need to have a car the size of an Il-76 no less. And at the cost of AWACS. A UAV is a consumable designed to work in the field, with a high probability of death. And about how easy it is to make a drummer - it’s already got a sore mouth .. for twenty years they couldn’t do it! Only promises promised .. And this twin-engine miracle is also clearly not Ice.

          It’s time to actually do something and not to argue like you - they say it doesn’t hurt. Just like Krylov about a fox and grapes.

      In general, from 2010-11 there has been a topic of Altius-M research - research to substantiate the appearance and development of a heavy reconnaissance and strike UAV. The drone itself (the device that flies) bore the more familiar hearing name "Altair" (probably still bears, perhaps, there may be a mistake - they mixed up the topic of research and the name of the device. Or maybe not - "Altair" moved so hard that they decided to rename .. "U" is, as a rule, improved. (the letter M (modernized type) is already taken)

    The view, of course, is not particularly futuristic, especially the nacelles. As if they took a transporter as a basis. Well, God be with design, the main thing is that in the task by load weight, flight range and hover time fit into the statement of work.

        do not write nonsense. The main requirement for the UAV is not the flight speed, but the range of the combat radius. Or in other words, the time spent in the air. Learn to count the elementary - more speed - more fuel consumption - less payload - less flight range. Barrier for a long time in the control zone is a priority than to fly somewhere quickly and return just as quickly due to dry tanks. By the way, the MQ-9, on which you all breathe unevenly, has exactly the same cruising speed - 250km / h. So learn the materiel before writing

UAVs live in the air. I reminded you of the million hours of flight MQ-1, in a twin-engine UAV, this million hours will be twice as expensive.

          Incidentally, for this UAV, cruising speed was indicated at 150 km \ h. and those same 400 km \ with the Reaper are needed not to rush headlong into the selected area, but to quickly move out of their air patrol for fire support.

    Altair he was in KB them. Simonov initially. Then they called it Altius. The topic was taken from Kazan and transferred to the Ural State Automobile Plant. In VO wrote about it. Therefore, probably, the letter "U" appeared.
    And the engines of the German company RED (owned by our former compatriot), which was planning, or is already building a plant in Russia for the production of aircraft engines.
    It is clear that even in this case most of the components will be imported to them.
