Kalashnikov announced the deadline for the completion of state tests of the KYB kamikaze drone

State tests of the KYB kamikaze drone are scheduled to be completed this year, 2021. This was reported by the press service of the Kalashnikov concern.


The loitering ammunition KYB for the Russian army has completed preliminary tests, an experimental batch of kamikaze drones has been manufactured and is undergoing the state stage, which, according to the developer's plans, should be completed this year. At the same time, work is underway on the export version of the drone.

This year it is planned to complete the state tests of the KYB ammunition (...) in parallel, work is underway on the export version of the KYB-E, which is also planned to be completed this year

- Reported the press service.

The concern announced the existing interest in this drone from some countries of the Middle East, but it is too early to talk about export supplies, since the version of the KYB patrolling ammunition intended for the Russian army is not intended for sale abroad, and the export version is not yet ready.

According to the developer, the mass of the warhead of the KYB kamikaze drone is 3 kg, the maximum speed is 130 km / h, and the time spent in the air is 30 minutes. The device has a length of 1210 mm, a wingspan of 950 mm and a height of 165 mm. The complex is designed to engage remote ground targets.

      According to the developer, the mass of the warhead of the KYB kamikaze drone is 3 kg, the maximum speed is 130 km / h, and the time spent in the air is 30 minutes. The device has a length of 1210 mm, a wingspan of 950 mm and a height of 165 mm. The complex is designed to engage remote ground targets.

      The range of destruction is 60-65 km, if the maximum speed is 130 km / h, and the time spent in the air is 30 minutes. It would be nice to increase the range and stay in the air.

      ... The head of Rostec, Sergei Chemezov, said that the drone is capable of bypassing air defense systems. "The charge on this complex can be delivered to the target, regardless of its concealment and terrain - both low and high altitudes," RBC quotes him.

      The production of such kamikaze drones has already been deployed, in particular, in Israel: back in the 2000s, the IAI Harop reconnaissance and strike drone was developed in the country, which, when a target is detected, turns into a cruise missile. At the same time, when entering the target, the command can be canceled and the device can thus be sent on further patrols or returned to the base. Unlike the Russian development, the Israeli drone develops speeds of up to 185 kilometers per hour and is capable of staying in the air for up to six hours.

        elementary math doesn't work here.

        the device should operate exclusively in the area of ​​reliable signal reception / transmission.

        in case of problems with finding and identifying a target, the device either goes into loitering mode or lays down on the opposite course.

        filled with cc must be guaranteed to be returned to the starting point.

        I think we are talking about a distance of 30 - maximum 40 km from the target

        This is if the stationary, explored, with known coordinates int. And if it is mobile, but disguised, but it needs to be detected, identified, etc. That turns out to be somewhere 50-55 km. time for all this will take from 3 to 7 minutes, for the worst option - 10 minutes.
        IMHO.

    Can you launch it from your hands, without using additional catapults and launching devices?

        Accidentally anything can happen, but at one time (and probably to this day) model aircraft launched timer models with internal combustion engines, located also in the back of the glider ...



        In addition, the video of the Orlan UAV launch shows that the rotor of the vehicle does not rotate at the moment of launch, but the blades are folded, and only after the start does the engine start working ...

      Most likely not, or you need to run very fast.
      To do this, use a good old slingshot. The elastic does not take up much space, the pegs are driven in anywhere.

        Above, I posted a video of the launch of "Orlan" with hands.

        And nuance yes Your photo clearly shows that at the time of launch from the catapult (slingshot) the UAV propeller complicated, and is activated only after takeoff.

    An excellent tool for sabotage groups ... jumped to an airfield or an enemy ammunition depot and from a distance, without risking people, fired at an object ... an excellent weapon in the right hands.

        On smile tried ... the maximum takeoff weight of this thing is 10,5 kg.
        Variants can be in the form of a hybrid of an airplane and a helicopter ... in addition, it can be equipped with interchangeable warheads with various payloads, including photo and video cameras, thermal imagers, combined thermal imaging systems, gas analyzers and dosimeters, a laser designator, etc.
        That is, the weight of the device may vary depending on its purpose. hi

        This is a warhead, not an explosive charge. Roughly, 82mm propeller mine (or PG-7 head).

    Such good news on UAVs has gone the last few days! It remains only in the line of drones to close the niche of strategic reconnaissance. We know how to keep the development secret. September October last year on this issue was the finest hour of all the fighters. And now we are discussing the range, power and speed.

        Maybe you're right. The glider should be made of composite, the "internal consumption" digun should be replaced with ED with LIAB. Then you can wipe your nose by God expelled. But this is in perspective. So far, this is a tactical level of a battalion scale. Therefore - cheap and cheerful!

    A 30 minute flight is nothing.
    Full-fledged patrolling of the area will not work. And so it would be the arrival of instant karma to the Nazis somewhere in the steppes of Donbass, in order to forever discourage the hunt even to uncover their mortars, and not just shoot.

    maximum speed - 130 km / h, airborne time - 30 minutes. The device has a length of 1210 mm, a wingspan of 950 mm and a height of 165 mm. The complex is designed to engage remote ground targets.
    The news is good, but if the maximum speed is 130 km and the time is 30 minutes, then the most distant target is 65 km. Not so remote, the only thing cool is looking for it on its own.
