Turkish aircraft have adopted a new shock unmanned quadcopter Songar

The Turkish army will soon receive a new unmanned shock unmanned quadcopter Songar. The first batch of armed drones is preparing for delivery to the troops.

Turkish Armed Forces are preparing to adopt the new unmanned quadcopter Songar manufactured by the Turkish company ASİSGUARD. The Songar strike drone was first shown at the 14 International Defense Industry Exhibition IDEF-2019 in Istanbul.

The drone is equipped with a rifle weapons (assault rifle, machine gun) and is capable of dropping small bombs. Declares the development of a variant with an 40-mm grenade launcher. For aiming, the drone uses data from sensors, cameras and a laser rangefinder, and a special design on which a machine gun is mounted is able to minimize recoil after a shot.

The drone has passed a series of trials recognized as successful. During the tests, the drone aimed fire from a distance of 60, 100 and 150 meters. Currently, work is underway with the sights of the drone, after which the drone will be able to hit targets from a distance of 450 meters.

The drone weighs 55 pounds (almost 25 kg), range - 10 miles (16 km), flight altitude - 9200 feet (2,8 km). The drone is equipped with a day / night camera, which transmits real-time video, providing damage assessment after the drone carries out an attack. It can use both American GPS and Russian GLONASS navigation systems.

The drone is controlled by the operator using a special remote control. It is stated that from one remote control it is possible to control several drones at once.

    The commercial is very optimistic, it is clear that in this situation, the soldiers will not be able to use the drone because they will be busy flying to the moon along with what remains of the car.
    Therefore, everything looks somehow unnatural and leads the viewer into fornication, they could come up with some more plausible scenario - for example, operational blocking of the enemy’s escape routes, adit.

      It would be plausible if the drone flew up to the machine and shot it. The reversion application is more suitable for him.

        Wow. US cartridges + glushak and at night.

          Most likely, this drone is imprisoned for the fight against the Kurdish partisan movement inside Turkey. what

    We will follow the information. I think he will soon "show up" in some known conflicts.

      And heroically die! Aiming fire can from a distance of 60 - 150m ... believe me - it’s more difficult to shoot a goose (live) than this Carlson. The only advantage that I see is the presence of a night camera ... to call this miracle a shock quadrocopter, boldly!
      The idea of ​​fastening a machine gun to a quadrocopter is far from new ... Mattress makers even screwed a flamethrower to them ... it makes sense to use them as scouts, no more.

        Their danger will increase when they can rivet cheaply and in large quantities. After prolonged hostilities, a shortage of people will be felt, but drones, with a normal production base, will not.

      In urban conditions, it’s not an interchangeable thing, when you have one street, and the position of terrorists in another. With the help of this drone, you can scare them from their position and save the lives of their soldiers.

    Very interesting, but ours may or may not be worth it.

      They can, but ours is called the fight against drones)))

        I'm talking about using two navigation systems.

          Yes, now almost all navigators can do this, only it doesn’t suit the military, they can chop off GPS or give distorted data at any time. You can work with the Chinese, they are now developing BD well.

    Here she is fiction in reality. Kevlar still paste. And I wish you luck with 300 meters in a shootout.

    An interesting idea, it will obviously find application in the troops. The night regime for him and in general not a single DRG will pass through the front line.

    this is not serious, in the best case, this craft can be used as a security drone of the base, it’s not suitable for more

      ALIGNMENT-SHOOTING WILL NOT APPEAR THERE. This machine will always have a problem with accuracy, since it is necessary to routinely measure the point of impact and sights. So I put everything "tama" right in the vise .. This does not happen. And the spread will be such that it is necessary to fly at close range. Although the idea itself is a good one.

      Does the firing axis pass through the center of mass? Judging by the layout, no. Instead, they made an active inertial stabilization system to compensate for a reversal during recoil. On the one hand, it’s a masterpiece, on the other, if you attach your head to the layout, rather than make patterns, a decent base for weapons can work.

    from 150m from a female broadcaster from DShK it will be very difficult to get through it, but it will be possible to get across a broadcaster mobile from such a drone. or throw a grenade. Or fly up to the building and shoot at the window. I think this device will find its niche

    And how do you like the drone-convertiplane of the Urus machine technology group? And both in the elegantly streamlined, and in the budget-brutal versions. Universal, powerful.
    Takes off vertically from any platform. And high-speed flight "on the wing" allows you to deliver cargo much further in the same time and fly longer than traditional copters. At the same time, the wing unloads the engines, making their work much more reliable.
    But the traditional "copter" control has been kept as the most convenient and simple.
