In Ukraine, showed the test drone "kamikaze" "Thunder"


The drone "kamikaze" "Thunder" developed by the Ukrainian NPP Atlon Avia passed the next stage of flight tests. This is a barrage of ammunition that moves with the help of a multicopter and is capable of performing various tasks.


The test process of the new Ukrainian drone was shot on video for the Defense Express Internet resource.

During the test flight, several drone control modes and the detection of various targets were tested.

To prevent the prototype from being destroyed, a parachute was mounted on it instead of explosives.


The mass of the warhead of the ammunition is 3500 grams. It can be high-explosive, thermobaric, or cumulative.

The total take-off weight of the device is 10 kilograms. Its speed can reach 120 km / h. An UAV is capable of continuously being in the air for an hour.

An optical station with a powerful camera is able to find even small targets from a height of up to 1,2 kilometers.

Multicopter is not only a means of delivery of ammunition, but also acts as a repeater of control signals and telemetry. This allows you to expand the range of data transmission even in the face of opposition to electronic warfare of the enemy.

        Kamikaze drones are a popular modern weapon.
        A cheap one that even a student can collect.
        As the war in Syria has shown - against layered air defense is useless, but against targets not covered by air defense is very effective.

      You may have forgotten, but the war consists entirely of such tricks, knightly fights have long been in the past. And Ukraine is definitely not worth condemning for this.

      It is necessary to prepare to repel such a threat. Such drones will be tomorrow not only in Ukraine, but also in militants in the same Syria or elsewhere.

          Well then blame Russia for this, too, because non-combatants have put much more out of our weapons.

          But in my opinion it’s not the fault of the developers, but of those who use this weapon, in fact ordinary people who for some time gained power and permissiveness.

      Do not rush to get upset, this designer is "crazy hands" assembled from Chinese parts, not as much a weapon as a means of "cutting the budget." This company appeared in 2014, about the "Fury" especially good reviews are not heard, and even scared to think about the cost. This is a military secret "000"

      Good target for Shilka


      Shilka is outdated for several decades. For each Shilka such drones can be done hundreds, tired of shooting. Moreover, in order to repulse the Shilke attack, it will be necessary to be on alert 24 hours a day, and there are no replaceable / spare crews like Israel in tanks in tanks.

      The drone kamikaze is a serious threat and underestimating it, you can then get another nuisance like in Idlib with UAVs, which we do not have, and Turkey has hundreds of them, I’m not even talking about more powerful NATO countries.

      The system opposing such drones should be automatic, I think, based on a 57-mm programmed to detonate ammunition, so as not to spend a lot of ammunition on one target. Zasek, the computer calculated the range, gave the command to the fuse, the system fired 3-4 shots towards the target and while the shells were flying, it began to capture the target and so many times how many of these drones will be in the air.

      But Shilka was made for a plane or a helicopter, no one expected that there could be a dozen such goals for each ZSU.

        Everything is exactly the same, but without the "commands" the fuses can be done for the "Shilok" ...

          Maybe it can. But why? Isn't it more efficient and cheaper to fire a shot from 2-3 57-mm shells, which will be both more accurate and cheaper than a line of 4 barrels of several hundred shells and more powerful and further hit targets than 23-mm Shilka shells.

          Shilka has a big dispersion that it wasn’t critical for a plane / helicopter type target when it was created, now it has lost its relevance as ZSU even for planes and helicopters, and getting into a small drone is a completely different matter, it may take several bursts and defeat will only be at a very close range. Now imagine that there are several such kamikaze drones, and while you are hitting one half of the b / c, another 10 of these will fly at you and 10 are ready.

          The principle of Shilka’s defeat is a cloud of cheap shells, some kind of hit the target (plane, helicopter), and this drone is scanty, it may happen that it won’t get a damn into it.

          Another point is that Shilka uses a radar, that is, at the leading edge its location will be visible and it will be hit by an anti-radar missile.

          Therefore, such a system should operate in a passive mode based on OLS as the main mode of operation, and radar only as an additional one and under certain conditions.

            Well, we don’t need to send them to re-melting and we will wait for the Derivations-SV, when the troops will be saturated with it in 10 years.
            Shilka has one huge advantage that should not be discounted; even three trunks fail, it can hit the target exactly, and what happens when the Derivation-SV fails?

              I doubt that Shilka and its four trunks will hit such a target, and even more so.

              As an example, I have not heard anything in Syria or the Donbas about the successful use of this ZSU against drones.

              And so that the weapon does not fail, it must be serviced.

    The rapid development of combat drones will make the wars of the future similar to the First World War. Then the army buried itself in the trenches and bunkers, fired across the front line with mortars, howitzers and machine guns, since the attacks were useless by their lethality. In the future, soldiers will also sit deep underground and shoot drones across the front line until these drones end. Then they will come up with something else. If there is anyone.

      Moreover, the Atlantic or Pacific Ocean can become the front line, and the dugout can be in a comfortable office.
      But, by and large, the time of controlled drones is running out. In the next war, fashion will be determined by fully autonomous drones that independently choose the target and attack tactics, as well as independently decide on the destruction of the target.

        Srau remembered several science fiction films. laughing The goal is always the control center and communication stub. It is logical! In real life, everything will not be so simple. "Center", there may be a sound network of several dispersed eggs - underground, at a great distance from the battlefield, in the air and in space / supposedly not static /. Communications can be multi-level, one or more of them reserved in case of failure! Secentricity or whatever else they call it ...?! “Soncepek” will not be effective, moreover, the goal will immediately become and will be destroyed in seconds, together with the crew! Ultramodern weapons, it will be possible to fend off only those similar to the technological level! What sets new, overly complex challenges!

            "Operator" will be a mobile computer network, on the principle of neural communications. Network artificial intelligence. As you probably know, in the human brain part of the neurons can be affected, for example, with a stroke. If the defeat is not critical, the rest of the neurons take over the functions of the dead. The human operator will perform auxiliary functions, since the speed of human thought will not be sufficient to analyze information and take adequate action. Of course, this does not apply to the device in static ... laughing In the case discussed here, the operator will smoke nervously under a camouflage net, hoping that the ego will not be deflected by smoke from cigarettes and from ... well, you understand .... laughing This is the case when smoking is really unhealthy! laughing

            Everything is possible! I believe all the most advanced, top secret. We can only guess! Developments are underway, unimaginable things are being created! Nanodrons, microdrons, large-sized combat robots, zoom-trophic and human-like, reconnaissance, with different firepower, walking, crawling, flying, garaging, swimming, diving, etc. I do not exclude the appearance of a special type - biorobots / cyborgs /. Artificial intelligence will dominate!
            How can I counteract it? I believe here the role of directed energy ray systems, as well as different types of wave fields / including bio-extrasensory nature / will increase. You are right, a lot rests on energy sources, which should be compact and costly at the same time! Stationary and mobile. The role of the Cosmos will grow and become decisive! There will be fewer human casualties, many wars will be won almost bloodlessly. The main emphasis will be placed on isolation, separation, paralysis of enemy systems, ego destruction, energy, production and technological frauds, management tools, analysis, and process management. Of course, and everything related to strategic weapons! Moreover, the attacker will be able to infiltrate, even before the ego opponent realized that
            attacked him! I am sure it is already in use! Man is extremely inventive in attempts to self-destruct!

    From the diaries of Admiral Canaris:
    “I'm not afraid of death. All my life I honestly performed my duty as an officer. My conscience before Germany is clear. I am guilty of only one thing: we all relied on some mythical miracle. We underestimated the Nazis. And insight came too late. And we could not save Germany from the disaster. ”
    Perhaps this is the last entry before the admiral Shelenberg arrived.
    Does it seem logical to one to draw parallels with what is happening in Ukraine?
    All wunderwaffles invent, everyone wants to defeat the aggressor, who has no time to come to war.

    I would venture to suggest that the dictator will replace the clown zyuzyu in this nativity scene.

    More suitable for sabotage than for warfare.
    This Ukraine, it is so unpredictable. Today they bomb Donbass - and tomorrow they can start bombing Dnepropetrovsk.
    "According to an ADL poll (an American Jewish non-governmental human rights political and social organization that opposes anti-Semitism and other forms of intolerance towards Jews), which was conducted in 14 European countries, about one in four European citizens holds anti-Semitic beliefs, and such views are becoming more common in Eastern countries of the continent, reports Associated Press.
    Thus, anti-Semitic sentiments in Poland increased to 48% from 37% in 2015. In Ukraine, growth was even higher: currently, 46% of the population (32% in 2016) adhere to this view. "

        Another thing is that Ukraine still seems like no one believes even in Ukraine itself.

        Question: who is to blame will definitely come up.
        They will begin to find out what such a network (ethnic network) has actively and skillfully planted (to the delight of Bandera) Russophobia in Ukraine over the past 20 years.
        Suddenly find out.
        And as they find out, they will remember about the kamikaze shell, and about other nishtyaks, the benefit of their experience is already there.

        What do these Ukrainians have in mind request

    A serious and dangerous weapon. Some kind of stationary and autonomous air defense systems must be made against such systems. Something like our “Derivation”, so that it would not detect the radar targets but the OLS and not give out itself and destroy them with 57-mm munitions programmable for detonation.

    It may make sense to do the “Derivation” not only on the basis of the BMP, but also, for example, in the form of a trailer for the “Tiger” where the OLS, a 57-mm gun, batteries for autonomous long-term operation with remote control from the Tiger car will be placed.

    Such stationary systems would be able to cover the checkpoints of troops and prevent them from being defeated by such cheap and effective types of ammunition.

    This is a barrage of ammunition that moves with the help of a multicopter and is capable of performing various tasks.

    So, it seems that they already had this ready. wassat

    Rises in the rear to a height and drops ammunition, which is already flying to the target. I wonder what speed the garaging equipment of this "kamikaze" has? 300 km / h?

      Judging / subjectively / from the video, it is unlikely that more than 120-150 km / h. and then downhill with a dive! The propeller is dvukhlopastny, and the electric motor is probably low-speed. With all this, due to the small size, this is a difficult goal! hi

        They write 120 km / h in static, the current is incomprehensible is the speed of a multirotor or ammunition ?!

    They assembled UAVs from a Chinese store and equipped them with a charge. The weak point of such a drone is communication.

    Pretty original solutions, thanks to the author, I would have missed. With the mass production of such ammunition, taking into account the reusable device for raising and launching it, hitting the target will be very inexpensive. What can I say, not the fact that the Ukrainians will take it into service or this is the final option, but I think if the APU will have them in a large enough quantity, then they can make a rustle. It immediately seems to me that the most common will be ammunition variants with cumulative and thermobaric charge (warhead) performance. In the case of a cumulative warhead, by definition, ammunition will attack the target from above, in the least protected areas, and in theory in the case of local and mass production, it will cost less or be comparable to modern ATGMs, but it seems to me to be more effective, as it will allow to destroy for example tanks, still on the march or in areas of concentration, etc. In addition, with mass use, I think the air defense systems will be not very effective and will only slightly reduce effectiveness. Especially, for example, in the East, with all the desire we don’t have to deploy modern anti-aircraft missile systems such as the Shell, by definition, and taken separately it will not be sufficiently effective, or even it will become one of the first targets of such ammunition.

    He began to follow similar developments after the first relative mass use on the territory of the USSR during the next clashes between the armies of Azerbaijan and Armenia in April 2016.
