How to distinguish the first strike UAV of Ukraine from the Turkish "Anka": on the appearance and characteristics

66

Ukrainian defense industry continues to present its latest developments. This time it is announced the creation of a mid-weight strike drone.


The head of the Ukrainian state-owned enterprise Luch, Oleg Korostelev, who is also the general designer, spoke about the new creation of the military-industrial complex. According to him, the first Ukrainian strike UAV, which received the designation "Falcon-200", is planned to be presented in October this year.

He will be able to carry weapons (launchers with 4 missiles) weighing about 200-250 kg. The flight duration of the car will be approximately one day. As a power plant, both a piston and a turboprop engine can be featured. It is proposed to use the RCP-360, which has already been attached to the Neptune anti-ship missile system, as a control point.

I believe that it is quite realistic to take such an aircraft into service in a year and a half. Start flying there, after nine months, and leave another 8-9 months for all test work and development

- noted Korostelev.

For our part, we note that the UAV announced by Luch design bureau is almost identical in appearance to the Turkish Anka UAV (perhaps the only difference is the presence of flaps at the Sokol-200). Moreover, the payloads of the two vehicles coincide (Anka also carries up to 250 kg) and flight duration (up to 24 hours).

You can also take into account that some types of Turkish military equipment have been delivered to Ukraine. Among them is the Bayraktar TB2 UAV, a batch of which was completely shipped in 2019. In this regard, the sale of the independent and Turkish Anka is quite possible.

As a result, taking into account the state of the Ukrainian military-industrial complex, it can be assumed that in fact we are talking either about the licensed assembly of Turkish cars, or, more likely, about their direct purchase with the subsequent presentation as Ukrainian UAVs.

UAV "Anka" and its performance characteristics:

        Bayraktars are in service and are mass-produced, how many countries can boast of this? For better or worse, it is a value judgment that depends on many factors.

            It would be nice for Russia to buy UAVs from the Turks while we are friends, otherwise we will delve into it for a long time, our scientists in science do not pay design engineers, and they don’t take design engineers as deputies, they are these design engineers who scored on UAVs, for a penny and disrespect for themselves, they will not work. And athletes, showmen, singers who are seated in deputies and massively respected do not understand and do not know the math

            How old are you? By the level of your writing you can see that not much. Design engineers in the Russian Federation do not get very bad. The Russian Federation already has a shock UAV; it is undergoing tests. You can’t bear all these nonsense about deputies. In your opinion, people become technologists, engineers or programmers to become deputies?

                  Well, without irony, in the last decade in Russia, I know about 4-5 UAV prototypes that could become shock. The C70 is being developed, it is undergoing test flights, there is no information about the use of weapons, there is not even a word about adopting it. It is rather a demonstrator of opportunities. This project is extremely controversial. The design of the flying wing has too many drawbacks. The US is slowly abandoning this type of UAV.

          This is how propaganda works. And base. It’s base, because it’s not even trying to subtly emphasize, but is engaged in primitive lies, cheap manipulations that are visible as white threads on a tailcoat. For example, the Turkish president pathetically announced the destruction of 8 armor. It would seem that providing evidence is not a problem, slay 8 videos from the UAV on the Internet, and enjoy the triumph. And what do we see on YouTube? Several fake videos in the style of a primitive manipulative video editing. In one video, instead of the Carapace, they show something muddy-muddy, shot obviously by a not modern high-quality UAV camera, and most likely being relatively old shootings of the defeat of the Roland air defense system. In another, they show three working Shells standing not far from the canopy hangar. And at this moment no one thinks to attack these Armor, there are no fools. Then they show a missile getting into a similar hangar, and something burns colorfully under it, maybe a box with ammunition, maybe some armored personnel carrier, or maybe it’s actually caught on the Shell. Unknown This is served as the destruction of 3 Shells! In the third they show the working Shell, then they show the moment of the defeat of the broken Shell. Have you noticed the pattern? Working Shells take off from afar, out of their range, and do not think to hit them, and decide to attack only when the Shells obviously do not work. The Turks so passionately wanted to denigrate the Shell that they themselves did not notice how they actually confirmed that in combat mode the Shell is not pierceable.

      Better ... Worse ...
      Real qualities can only be tested in real battles. With a strong opponent.
      Israel and the United States constantly use strike UAVs against an “enemy” that does not have normal air defense.
      During the Iraq war, strike UAVs were not used until they crushed all anti-aircraft missiles.
      And to fly up and drop the ammunition, or even make a kamikaze drone - these are the terrorists on the knee in the garage rivet massively.
      So the question remains open ... And it would be better if he remained that way.

                There is a class MALE representatives of its TB2 and MQ1. They are either reconnaissance or reconnaissance-strike (multipurpose as you put it), there are kamikaze drones like Switchblade, there is a MQ25 tanker with limited reconnaissance capabilities.

                Some purely shock UAVs simply do not exist yet (Of course, if you do not consider kamikaze drones as such), they are all multi-purpose i.e. reconnaissance UAVs that have the ability to carry and use weapons.

                  the UAV’s intelligence tasks are primarily indicated by the hardware complex installed on its board. For shock drones, in order to increase the missile and bomb load, reconnaissance equipment was dismantled (or not installed initially). There remains a primitive optoelectronic channel. To ensure the fulfillment of both those and those tasks, already at the design stage of the UAV, the load bearing aerodynamic and traction characteristics are laid in such a way as to provide an increased load. Put a full-fledged radar on TB2 (if possible) and it won’t even take off. Not to mention the combat load. So I do not need demagoguery and Wikipedia

        If you delve into the facts, you can find out that a significant part of the losses of aircraft was due to the fact that for 20 years the equipment was not completely repaired in commercial quantities, and the flight crew did not have a raid.
        Moreover, according to the LDNR anti-aircraft gunners, among the heaps of the Donbass there should be a broken Su-25 air regiment and four dozen other planes and helicopters. But there is no photo confirmation request
        This, of course, does not negate the real shots and the competent work of the calculations, but this does not say much about the real effectiveness of air defense, there is little statistics.
        Do whatever you want with this information.

    As a result, taking into account the state of the Ukrainian military-industrial complex, we can assume that in fact we are talking either about the licensed assembly of Turkish cars, or, more likely, about their direct purchase with the subsequent presentation as Ukrainian UAVs
    No, rather, we can talk about close military-industrial cooperation between Ukraine and Turkey.

Rather, with his electronics. Either rides or shoots, at the same time did not want to. And these chpok ... And everything is ready - and the electronics and orientation and control, so that even hit the target? Somehow it turns out briskly even for copying.

        How to distinguish the first strike UAV of Ukraine from the Turkish Anka

        Even no screwdriver assembly is needed. You just need avionics, the glider does not play a role, because everyone can change his configuration, as he pleases, the main thing is to have an aerodynamic quality appropriate for this type of apparatus. Considering that the Luch design bureau is also designing much more sophisticated aircraft systems, something new in creating a simple monoplane is not enough for them.
        “And why is the glider really Ukrainian and how does it differ from the Turkish Anka,” you ask?
        Yes, simply because "Anka" is high plan, and the new Ukrainian UAV (according to the image) low wing, as well as the configuration of their plumage is different. But it’s too early to say, since we were shown a preliminary model, and we will only find out how the UAV actually looks like in October.
        Why then did the author of the news not compare the Ukrainian UAV with the American MQ-1/9? Because the author of the news doesn’t “fumble” about how to make stuffing, if he wanted to, the United States somehow dragged here, but the author chose Turkey.

      And nobody has ever seen him in real life. And what glider he has is not yet known. The first picture to the article is a computer drawing. And as you know, it’s also written on the fence ... Look, there’s firewood.

    Ukraine has followed in the footsteps of China, the only question is, will mass production be pulled? Enough to buy pennies for the Armed Forces of Ukraine or is it just a project again

    I believe that it is quite realistic to take such an aircraft into service in a year and a half. Start flying there, after nine months, and leave another 8-9 months for all test work and development


    Go to the record. lol

    But Russia has nothing to brag about in the area of ​​shock drones ..
    altius is still in tests, orion falls constantly.
    But the main! and orion and altius are scouts ...
    with drums we just have trouble: ((((
    not only the Americans jumped us a long time ago, but also the Chinese and Turks
    a shame

    Songs from discos in rest houses are relayed to the pintagon dungeons ..
    In secret bunkers, non-stop sounds: "Valera! Valera! Love, hope and faith !!"
