Defense Ministry will receive a new reconnaissance drone

The Ministry of Defense can get into service a new multifunctional helicopter-type drone. As follows from the materials of the Aircraft Builder of the Year contest, a contract for its delivery to the RF Armed Forces is expected in the near future.


Reportedly, a new helicopter-type drone, dubbed the Grach, was created by specialists from the Arzamas Instrument Design Bureau (APKB LLC, a subsidiary of the APZ) under the scientific supervision of the Voronezh Air Force Academy (VVA). The UAV was created according to the classical scheme of a helicopter with one main and tail tail rotors. Petrol engine.

In the near future, after testing, it is planned to assign the letter "O" and conclude a state contract with the Russian Ministry of Defense for the supply of the first multifunction helicopters as part of the state defense order

- said in a statement.

It is stated that this drone can be used both as a reconnaissance and as a transport cargo. With its own weight of 100 kg, it is able to lift cargo weighing up to 40 kg and deliver it to a distance of up to 400 km.

The previous version of the UAV-VT “Grach” UAV was shown at the Army-2018 international military-technical forum. The UAV could deliver 50 kg of cargo per 300 km, the flight altitude was called 3,5 km, speed - 160 km / h, while in the air - 6 hours. Since then, the drone has been modernized: the weight of the carrier and payload has been reduced to increase the range and flight time. The designers also improved the shape of the direction finder so that the helicopter becomes more maneuverable and resistant to wind.

Currently, developers are preparing for testing and licensing the drone in accordance with the Air Code of the Russian Federation.

    Not a word about detection and communication channels. Okay, there is something to suggest on your own. But why write about one glider at all? Not licensed, not tested. But the Ministry of Defense will receive it. What is the article about?

      As always, in the headline there is a loud - "GET", and then, in the article, a modest - "may receive" (or may not receive) request

    And whose engine is on it? Can they get it, but most likely they won’t get it because “you don’t have enough money?” How many more fairy tales will the army and the country hear from the promise? ??

        And I already thought that turbo and direct injection. Well, or an economical diesel.

    UAVs recently developed as armored cars - eyes run wide. We should already make a choice.

          Then a scout, you can put a couple of ATGMs, then a shock one, only by a postman he is probably more needed.

              The drones provide the ability to connect and control reconnaissance means, they will drag the ATGM sight and trigger.

              You can attach a couple of Bumblebees and Pechenegs, as an option. Moreover, Pecheneg does not need additional rods for gyro-stabilization.

                I'm still talking about ATGMs. How are you going to control the guidance of ATKRs to the target? By wire, by radio, by infrared radiation of the target? Also on machine guns. You can't do this from the sofa, I think.

                  the drone has its own location visualization. if it is called to suppress certain positions, then signs of these positions are given.

    Very familiar performance characteristics. One to one - the Austrian Camcopter S-100, aka "Horizon Air S-100".
    Pominitsa, "Horizon" wanted to put the same faces on almost every PSKR - but something went wrong. Maybe even with a localized version it will work better.

      He also has a helicopter propeller.
      The obviously damned regime stole it all from the USA.

        Russian hackers tried. laughing

        Seriously, there is nothing surprising in the appearance of the domestic version of the S-100. Ships for the original have already been built, but there are not enough UAVs (and there are problems with the Ka-226). The border guards even ordered Fireflies again without a helicopter / UAV pad - simply because there was nothing to put on it.
        So you need something that will fit into the Procrustean bed of the old TK on a shipboard helicopter-type UAV. Which means that the TTX of the replacement will be approximately the same as that of the S-100.

    I know several enterprising guys who have been carrying their UAV assembled from Chinese spare parts for eight years at any exhibitions, hoping that either the Ministry of Emergencies or the Ministry of Defense will buy their development from them .. But at least there weren’t any snot from the outside .. and here. .

      And you know in the Moscow Region they don’t know what they want! There is no concept, no requirements, no understanding of why and what UAVs are for ... Why do we need UAVs if there is a soldier in a warrior with an archer ... Well, a bunch of them will die, but it’s clear how heroically they will fulfill their task ..

      Oh, someone didn't like the word snot? And what is there, excuse me, under the fuselage of this pepelatsa? Look you, transport-cargo ... it is important as much as 40 kg can carry ... a skinny shepherd dog, if it is transport, or two cans of alcohol, if it is cargo?
