The Ministry of Defense called the timing of admission to the Aerospace Forces of shock drones

The Aerospace Forces (VKS) of the Russian Federation will begin to receive multi-purpose attack drones as early as next year, said Lieutenant General Sergei Dronov, Deputy Commander-in-Chief of the Russian Aerospace Forces, in an interview with the Krasnaya Zvezda newspaper.


According to the general, the Russian army is currently armed with short-range, short-range and medium-range unmanned aerial vehicles. From next year, long-range strike reconnaissance drones will begin to enter the troops, they have already been tested, including in Syria, confirming the ability to hit targets with high-precision ammunition.

Next year, the troops will begin to receive multipurpose long-range and long-range unmanned aerial vehicles capable of not only conducting aerial reconnaissance, but also hitting enemy targets with high-precision ammunition in strategic depth.

- said Dronov, without specifying which drones will go into service with the Russian Aerospace Forces.

The deputy commander-in-chief explained that drones are used to solve a wide range of tasks, including reconnaissance, strike, transportation, etc., as well as to solve problems where the use of a manned aviation limited and ineffective.

For our part, we note that in an interview with the deputy head of the Aerospace Forces, it is unlikely that the supply of the S-70 Okhotnik heavy attack drone, since it has just recently begun a test cycle, as well as the Altius medium drone, which is also being tested, is hardly discussed. Most likely, the Orion unmanned complex is being prepared for delivery. This medium-altitude drone is capable of carrying up to 4 missiles and performing reconnaissance functions. In 2019, Orion was tested in Syria, after which it was sent to the Russian Aerospace Forces for experimental combat operation.

The long-duration UAV Orion was created by the Kronstadt company within the framework of the Inokhodets development project under a contract with the Ministry of Defense. It is assumed that it will be supplied to the troops in two versions: reconnaissance and shock.

      The military-industrial complex of Russia is arranged very simply, if there are Soviet developments, there is a real weapon, and if there are no Soviet developments, then they are talking about the "unparalleled world" and tomorrow or the day after tomorrow it will begin to enter the troops ...

          Of course, there were projects in the USSR and robots, and stealth, and starships, and warp engines and everything else. And if something did not exist and suddenly appeared in the Russian Federation, then these are all stolen ingenious developments of the USA / Israel. Whether it is China, from a poor country in 30 years has turned into a technology giant! And all by myself, without outside help! wink

      In September 1981, S.V. Dronov, being a second year cadet of the Yeisk Higher Military Aviation School of Pilots, as part of a pair of L-29 training aircraft, worked out piloting techniques in the area of ​​the city of Bataysk, Rostov Region.
      His L-29 was at an altitude of 1200 m when a bird hit the air intake of the aircraft. The result of the hit was the stop of the only engine.
      Having contacted by radio communication with the flight director, Dronov reported what had happened. A command followed from the ground to use a counter launch. After several attempts to start, the engine will not start.
      The option of ejecting the pilot was ruled out, due to the location of the aircraft over the residential area of ​​Bataysk, the fall of the car would inevitably lead to casualties on the ground.
      After assessing the situation, cadet Dronov decided to land the plane with the landing gear retracted on a mowed field outside the city. After requesting permission from the flight director, the pilot proceeded to a systematic reduction. Landing on the field was rather smooth, the overload was 1,2 g. With the landing gear retracted, the aircraft landed safely on its belly, plowing several tens of meters along the ground.
      By the decree of the Presidium of the Supreme Soviet of the USSR, cadet S. Dronov was awarded the Order of the Red Star for his courage and heroism. It was a rare occasion when a cadet was awarded the order.

    It turns out in half a year, approximately, you can expect shock workers in the troops. Not bad, however.

            I saw him, I have an oil pipeline next to my house, regularly either Robinson or Ka-26 flies with inspection, and then suddenly it's a miracle, I thought that the oilmen had replaced the turntable with a drone. It turned out that the tests were taking place, it is so big and moves at very low speeds, as a result, it crashed in our area

          On the contrary, it is easier. There is no deviation from the oblique flow around the fuselage with a swirling jet from the propeller. Most training models are made with a push prop.
          And nothing flickers from the front, it doesn't interfere with the cameras looking forward.

                Let me explain - the plane has 6 degrees of freedom and it turns in space thanks to the elevators, directions and ailerons. They require a certain amount of air flow on these rudders to be effective. When the propeller is in front (pulling), it itself creates a flow of air on the elevators and rudders, due to which it is possible to control at speeds below the stall speed.
                With a pushing propeller (propeller at the back), it is necessary to maintain a certain flight speed so that the air flow on the elevators and directions allows them to be controlled. To put it simply, the front propeller itself creates the necessary air flow, so the landing speed can be kept lower, and therefore safer.

                  The problem is solved by using a long wing with mechanization, plus the fact that the autopilot controls more accurately than a person - there are enough surfaces that are there.
                  They fly normally, in general.

      Already changed - taking into account the use of UAVs for reconnaissance purposes.
      The state order for the development of shock workers would not have arisen without an analysis of the opening opportunities and the development of relevant doctrines and guidelines. And since there is a state order for the development and purchase of Orion (and it was developed on an initiative basis only at the first stage), then - rest assured - everything necessary has been done, especially taking into account the development of the developed procedures on Orion with targeted use on the expected Altius and the Hunter. Moreover, during its development, testing, certification, creation of a military modification and preparation of mass production, there was a lot of time to carry out the corresponding changes.
