Russian Navy will receive a sea version of the Altius UAV

The Navy will receive the marine version of the latest Russian ultra-long UAV Altius. The decision to create an UAV for sailors was made at the beginning of the year. This is reported by "Izvestia" with reference to the Ministry of Defense.


Russian Navy will receive a sea version of the Altius UAV


The Russian fleet will be armed with a "marine" version of the Altius UAV. It is noted that the drone is planned to be used both for reconnaissance and for delivering strikes. As explained in the Ministry of Defense, a fundamental decision on the creation of a marine version of Altius has already been taken, and tactical and technical requirements for the drone are being developed. According to the plans of military sailors, two versions will be created - reconnaissance and strike. The main weapons the shock version will be an anti-ship missile, most likely - X35.

The Ministry of Defense explained that the Russian Navy had a rather difficult situation with intelligence aviation - it is practically nonexistent. During the Soviet Union, the USSR Navy had a large number of Tu-16R and Tu-95RT reconnaissance aircraft in service, which conducted reconnaissance over almost the entire water area of ​​the World Ocean. At present, reconnaissance is quite difficult, and the adoption of Altius UAV will be able to solve this problem, since its characteristics allow reconnaissance around the clock over a long distance.

As previously reported. UAV Altius has a wingspan of 28,5 m, length - 11,6 m, take-off weight - 7 tons. The flight altitude is 12 thousand meters, flight range - up to 10 thousand km. In this case, the UAV can be in the air for up to 48 hours. The installed equipment allows reconnaissance at a great distance. The drone can also be controlled via satellite, which makes its range almost unlimited.

    We need a network of drones constantly hanging over the ocean. But where to get the money for this?

        Your sarcasm may be closer to the bitter truth than you and I think. In the 90s, they were already collecting for the completion of ships, wrappers were lying in the post offices. We remember that "There is no money ...", but especially there is no money for the final result.

      The network is not a network, but drones are needed. The Americans were the first to feel it. Their role will be especially great in a major conflict. Now the entire precision guidance system is powered by satellites. Even if the missile itself does not have any means of communication with the satellite, the one who launches it must know its location and the point of destruction in order to correctly indicate the course.
      But if the satellites are cut down, they will have to be replaced by drones or some other aircraft with similar functions.

        I imagined Altius taking off and landing on a corvette or even a frigate ...
        On the same Gorshkov. The challenge, however!

      The network is redundant. request But on the squadron of distant drones in each fleet - it is necessary. So that each exit to the sea of ​​more than one ship is accompanied by a pair - three long-range drones. With mass production, the cost of one product will decrease. By the way, I’m sure that in the coming years, drones will replace the su24mr. Just because its functions completely overlap with them and there is no need to risk the pilot.

    This is not only a UAV network in the air that is needed. Since such a booze has gone, we need a data transmission network from the UAV network in real time. Of course, there are a lot of questions: about the number of reconnaissance channels, and about the possibility of distributing the central command to the strike forces, and about how the information flow will be transmitted in general (and it is there that the flow is needed, from your telemetry to what is clear). However, the "former" does not need to know everything. We can only hope in a good way. soldier

      With data transfer, not everything is so bad. EW and RTR work? There is a base. Yes, and the communication channels are largely worked out in aviation and air defense. There is something to work on, but ... things are not at all fatal.

    The news is good, but he will not be able to become a full-fledged replacement for a scout because of the light weight of the payload.

    He was made for this as well.
    Several dozen of these devices will provide constant monitoring of all AUG probable partners.

    Optical / IR reconnaissance equipment is standard, RL reconnaissance can be implemented in other ways

    Very timely news.
    The ships carrying this Altius abruptly increase their combat capabilities.

        just put him where on those ships

        Hydro-melts ......
        Then a crane aboard, with folded wings.
        All planes are reconnaissance aircraft in World War II, they operated in the Navy - both on cruisers and battleships .....
