Kalashnikov Concern introduced a new reconnaissance UAV ZALA 421-16EV

The company ZALA AERO, part of the Kalashnikov concern, has developed a new hybrid drone ZALA 421-16EV, designed for reconnaissance. This was reported in a press release distributed by the company.


According to the report, the new drone combines aircraft and helicopter properties. The main advantage of this model is the possibility of take-off and landing "in helicopter", i.e. vertically, which in turn does not require special sites or catapults. It is clarified that the ZALA 421-16EV can take off and land completely in automatic mode.

The new unmanned ZALA 421-16EV HD complex broadcasts the video stream in HD format (1280 * 720), which allows the ground station operator to view the video video in great detail

- declare in the company.

It is noted that the new drone has light weight (there are no exact data, but judging by other models of the company - in the region of 10 kg), cruising speed - 110 km / h, while in the air - 2 hours. The main purpose is reconnaissance, aerial photography and terrain monitoring.

The complex, before the start of mass production, passed all the required tests and successfully proved itself in the field. Among customers there are both government bodies and enterprises, as well as various commercial structures.

      Why do we need him? Even a light Turkish Bayaktar with two tiny rackets costs 10 lyam bucks.
      No, in the sense of replacing them with Syria Drying for bombing the Papuans, it will come in handy ... and what is it for? We seem to be preparing more for the Great War, and there from them - the sense of one sortie.

        Now compare how much it costs to manufacture an airplane and train a pilot. And how long can a UAV hang over a certain area and who will respond more quickly to an unexpected threat on earth? No strike UAVs are needed, but they are not yet able to completely replace manned aircraft, they can supplement it for now.

          You write everything correctly, but this is only against the Papuans with MANPADS at most .... A big drummer for dozens of lyam bucks weighing a ton and a size of more than 10 m if they do not suppress electronic warfare, so they will not scam off the biggest missiles or send fighters.
          Some niche m. in the form of a Hunter (if he has good fighter-type LTH) in conjunction with the Su-57, but this is not a thing of the near future. And something like a slow-moving Ripper - not a tenant.

            Well, to cover up our bases in Syria would be the very thing. And now there are a lot of drone UAVs. From huge, multi-ton, capable of plowing the sky for days both over the indicated squares and along the routes, and to small "kamikazes", such as those that Israel is now using against anti-aircraft weapons in Syria and not without success ...

              Well, that’s what I’m saying - in counter-popular wars, drums are needed ....
              And the Israeli kamikaze are cruise missiles with a detachable part, and the conditions of use are very specific, on equal terms, taking into account their range, the enemy would have covered the launch points, I’m not talking about the downing on the way .... in general, Israeli-Syrian gunfights are football, where only one team has an effort on goal, and the other doesn’t even run out of its own half of the field ... therefore goals in its goal will be

            so do not disdain to launch the largest missiles or send fighters
            .
            Yes, it’s better, of course, to send a manned vehicle. She's so cheap and missiles bounce off her. A pilot can be trained in a week at all, yeah.
            it's not about the near future
            - This is a matter of the present day. And the near future is when manned aircraft will complement unmanned (although more correctly, remotely controlled).
            EW is not a panacea or a magic umbrella, especially if the war is not against the Papuans. What can a large number of shock drones - the Turks demonstrate in Syria and Libya.

              Technology itself does not fight. She needs personnel who know the technique and know how to apply it. If the UAV calmly went into the dead zone of an air defense missile system and works from it as at a training ground, then no equipment will help.

              Turks demonstrate in Syria and Libya.

              Not for long, they were enough in Syria. As soon as the Syrians pulled up the Beeches and showed what they were taught by knowledgeable people, they immediately concluded a truce on very favorable terms. By the way, the Turks obviously do not want to continue the banquet.

                just enough to stop the offensive of the Syrian army along with, so to speak, assistants. What the Turks needed at that time.
                By the way, the Turks obviously do not want to continue the banquet.

                They do not want to, of course: they are quite satisfied with the situation in which the "green" foothold remains. But Assad is just not there: he understands that with the weakening of assistance from Russia and Iran, the Greens will instantly creep apart, they have help and support always close by.
                R.S. interestingly, the Turks were able to demonstrate a more mature tactically and fairly massive use of shock UAVs. The Russian army, by the way, still cannot technically realize this. I hope the situation changes.

                  You somehow selectively take this "serial experience" into account.
                  They remembered Turkish UAVs, but forgot about Iranian ones.
                  Which for some reason turned out to be quite ineffective. Only two attacks on control points of such UAVs were enough. And even the helplessness of the Israelis in intercepting drones did not help, the Iranians and their proxies refused experiments.

                  But what about the requirements for CAA to return to the old line of demarcation in accordance with the Sochi accords? And then suddenly half-kingdom agreed laughing . Probably from the fact that the Turks are strong lol . And the offensive cannot last forever. Sooner or later, resources are running out and a truce is required on both sides. Before the start of the next company. That fact. that the Turks, at the very least, have begun to fulfill their obligations, suggests that they are not very keen on the next Marlezon ballet act.
                  interestingly, the Turks were able to demonstrate a more mature tactically and fairly massive use of shock UAVs.

                  Compared to whom? Is it with Iran? So Iran did not fight in Idlib. At least I don’t remember that. Even hezbola was not marked there.
                  The Russian army, by the way, still cannot technically realize this.

                  I suspect that none of our new UAVs will take away 2 FAB500s, and without them we will not be able to solve combat tasks laughing . All mass activity ended with the appearance of something similar to army air defense among the Syrians.

          Scouts are needed. A lot depends on them. Surely, during the test, they got out from the commission and got out questions that will take into account and embody. An UAV (reconnaissance) is good, you don’t need to build an airfield for it, you can transport it in a car, and it is always unexpected for the enemy.

      So there is Orion, Altius, the same S-70 Hunter. The work is on.
      Russian Aerospace Forces will destroy enemy medium- and short-range missiles before they are launched. The arsenal of unique drone drone “Hunter” and “Altius” will replenish the bomb “Thunder”. These heavy gliding munitions are capable of hitting targets over 100 km. For their exceptional accuracy in military-industrial circles, they received the nickname "sniper". According to experts, thanks to the new product, drones will be able to disable strategic objects in the deep rear of the enemy, while remaining invisible to radars.

      As sources in the military-industrial complex told Izvestia, a fundamental decision was made to equip domestic shock unmanned aerial vehicles with powerful and high-precision gliding bombs 9-A-7759 Thunder. Tests for the dumping of their bulk models from the heavy stealth UAV S-70 Okhotnik have already passed.

      But the integration of "sniper" bombs on the "Altiuses" is not yet complete.

      It depends on which, for example, most Russian UAV reconnaissance aircraft can give the coordinates of reconnoitered targets from local landmarks or flying exactly over the target. These methods have their own, quite understandable, limitations. According to the criterion of cost-effectiveness, "the best with the help of a laser rangefinder. We, for a moment, only have one on Orion."

      Actually, now everything rests mainly on light, capacious, and at the same time cheap batteries, and to a lesser extent the element base and software, the "brains" of the UAV.

    All these attempts to create some kind of ridiculous samples resemble the boom in the development of aviation technology at the beginning of the last century. There were no attempts. As a result, through trial and error, all world aircraft manufacturers have come to understand which way to move. Unmanned aircraft repeats the same path.
    As for the UAV segment for tactical reconnaissance, they should be of minimal size, not expensive and massive. So that each company has drones available with which it could control the area entrusted to it.

          poked, I wrote you a comment on "you". And about the "muzzle", it is so easy to threaten on the Internet, the keyboard will not give change. Offended that I accidentally stepped on your American love? Does it bother you that new models of technology are being developed in the Russian Federation?

            So therefore, people like you are rude on the Internet. I doubt that in real life you communicate this way. Although I, if you could not get anything else and achieve in your life, then everything is possible.

              that is, there will be no answer? Well then, go ahead and preach that everything is bad in Russia, but good in America. Maybe there will be appreciated and "combat" will be raised for victory in the next Internet battle.

      Flight range - 100 km, ashamed?

      and who should be ashamed? Maybe you don’t know the specifics of intelligence tasks. Do you think that any UAV should have a range of 5 km like Global Hawk? Actually, for reconnaissance UAVs in the interests of the battalion unit of 100 km. that’s it. Big for him is redundant. Because it is both weight and service, etc.

          you are arguing for the sake of argument, and even being rude. The parameters of a light UAV fit within a radius of 100km and time in the air for 2-3 hours. Take for example the lightweight American UAV RQ-11 Raven, RQ-20 Puma, Israeli Skylark and others. They all have similar parameters and tasks. And you would just throw on the fan

                Congratulations on your arguments. We compared our latest with the first UAVs 15 years ago.
                RQ-11 Raven
                Weight - 1.7 kg
                Speed ​​- 95 km / h
                Ceiling - 5000 m
                Radius - 10 km
                Engine Type - Electric
                Length - 96 see
                The flight duration is 45-60 minutes.

                Complete victory! negative
                RQ-20 Puma Weight - 6,1 kg
                Speed ​​- 83 km / h
                cruising 37 km. h
                Ceiling - 150 m
                Radius - 15 km
                Engine Type - Electric
                Length - 1,4 m.
                Duration - flight 3,3 hours

                Complete victory! This unit is similar to a weapon. That's just the range .... vinrepeat with speed and flight time, how is it ?.

                  Mauritius, are you so hard? I repeat to you one last time. it light UAV reconnaissance battlefield!!!! He has enough radius and time in the air. This UAV conducts reconnaissance in the interests of the tactical echelon up to the battalion level. He does not need reconnaissance of what is being done 500 miles from the front line. It is needed to look "over the hill". With the growth of characteristics, the weight will also stretch. A more powerful control center will be needed, more maintenance personnel. Why is this at the tactical level? What are you comparing there?

    So in a big war, and the aircraft is designed for one flight. We were taught that way. But the plane has a crew, and the drone is a piece of iron. People need to be protected!

    In this photo, I see the Israeli Orbiter UAV, (operated since 2004), to which the VTOL system was screwed (amateur modellers have been using it since at least 2013). I’m embarrassed to ask, where exactly is hidden here development the company ZALA AERO, which is already part of the whole Kalashnikov concern? And why my home-made UAV, with PX4 autopilot and free QGC software, can, after pressing a single button on a smartphone, automatically take off, carry out a mission, return to the starting point and land, while the ZALA 421-16EV intended for reconnaissance by ZALA AERO, which is already whole to the Kalashnikov concern, can't that? And yes, I wildly want to see at least somewhere, at least once, the vaunted HD-link of ZALA AERO, which is part of the whole Kalashnikov concern, at a distance of at least 5 km, at an altitude of 100 meters and in cloudy weather. lol
