Made in Russia: on the Orion long-duration drone

Unmanned aerial vehicles are playing an increasing role in both the military and civilian spheres. The armed forces of a number of countries around the world use flying drones to perform a range of tasks and operations, including combat. UAVs allow tracking enemy positions, monitoring the situation in the theater of operations (theater of operations), transmitting data to the command post. Attack drones can be used to deliver pinpoint strikes - up to the elimination of a specific enemy.


Russia is one of the countries in the world where drones are produced and are increasingly used by the troops. Among other Russian UAVs is the Orion long-duration drone.

A feature of the Orion UAV is that its airframe is almost 100 percent composed of composite materials. They provide lightness and strength of the structure.

Another important component is that only Russian materials, components and assemblies are used for the production of the Orion UAV. And reducing dependence on imports in the field of military production is an important component not only of the import substitution program, but also of the security system itself and the development of advanced technologies in the military-industrial complex.

    Such companies are vital that can create equipment for the army and subsequently for the Russian economy!

    Unfortunately, we are still lagging behind in engines. The resource of our engines is less than that of Western counterparts, which means that after each long flight of those. service, and this is time and costs! But in Orion they managed to cram a radar with a phased antenna array. I think the next Orion will be even better!

    Thank God they did it! And then it became completely sad to see how the Turks use what we do not have!

    Is he percussion? Not! How many decades a normal drummer cannot pile. In the same Syria, an irreplaceable thing. The sloppy Turks, just first-class drummers, to whom we, like before Kamchatka, have cancer, how many troubles the CAA have done. And we have all the models, such as a circle of aircraft modelers of the house of pioneers fly.
    PySy: the engine on this, which has no analogues in the world and the universe, whose miracle? German go.

    The main thing is not how much Russian in this Orion (although this point is also important), but how many sets will our native Defense Ministry buy from Kronstadt? We have invented a lot of things, but did not get into the army. Look that only after purchases by a foreign customer, the Ministry of Defense drew attention to the example of the Terminator or TOS. So the floor is for the Russian Ministry of Defense!
