The Kronstadt company will supply the Ministry of Defense with 7 sets of Orion attack drones

The Russian company "Kronstadt" will supply the Ministry of Defense with about 20 Orion attack drones. This was stated by the general director of "Kronstadt" Sergei Bogatikov.


On Friday, the Minister of Defense visited the Moscow enterprise for the production of unmanned aerial vehicles "Kronstadt", where he got acquainted with the progress of the state defense order. During his visit, he asked about the number of attack drones that the company could supply this year.

(...) 6-7 sets. Each kit includes three drones

- Bogatikov told the minister, adding that the company plans to launch a serial production of UAVs this year.

The minister demanded to increase the number of attack drones supplied to the Russian army.

Shoigu also got acquainted with other products of the company. The Minister was shown the Thunder high-speed strike UAV, the Helios-RLD radar patrol apparatus and the Inokhodets-RU reconnaissance drone.

Note that Orion is the only Russian attack drone for the supply of which a contract has been signed with the Ministry of Defense. The drone was created by the Kronstadt company within the framework of the Inokhodets ROC under a contract with the military department. The UAV is capable of staying in the air at maximum load for up to 24 hours. Flight altitude - 7,5 thousand meters. The drone has a maximum payload of 450 kg and is capable of carrying four missiles on board.

        "One-Two! Well, increase in number!" "I demand!" laughing Interestingly, and from whom he "demanded"? For those who produce? Or those who have to plan and pay for this production? How about paying for the expansion of production (if you need more)? wink Something, I did not find in the article about this ... request

    shock drone "Orion", attack high-speed UAV "Thunder", radar surveillance apparatus "Helios-RLD", reconnaissance and strike drone "Inokhodets-RU"
    it makes me happy that work is underway, just need
    to increase the number of attack drones supplied to the Russian army.

    , otherwise 20 Orion attack drones a year is not so much ...

    7 sets will not be enough, hopefully this year alone. So, for medium-intensity combat operations, 50-100 sets are needed per year, with the possibility of reaching a peak - 300 sets. Those. in peacetime, the pace is 20-30 sets

      Doubt the Orions will be built lots of: given the absolutely staggering pace of development of robotics (in general) and unmanned aircraft (in particular), I would not be surprised if, in a couple of years, the same "Kronstadt" (not to mention other firms), "will reveal to the astonished audience"something like that, in comparison, even" Orion "will seem like a" child's toy "....... request

              Have tried it. We replaced the electronics, abandoned the reservation, but the state did not pass. Samara could not only improve the engine, but could not repeat the Soviet version. After that, the people crawled to the UZGA, some to Kronstadt, and some had already died. The same Dolzhenkov in his youth worked on Yakovlev "Bee".

    The Minister of Defense demanded to increase the production of UAVs. And Stalin was inspired by the words from the telegram to the management of factories 1 and 18 of 23 .12, IL 41 planes are needed by the front like air, and today's production is a mockery of the party.

            Rotax. But there is an APD to cover it - but it will complete the state at the end of 21st and beginning of 22nd. However, a prototype flew with it. APD is a Chinese (well, Russian, without docks and license) variation of Rotax on the possibility of issuing Russian cooperation.

            - Continuing to move upward in increasing the dimension of the UAV, let's move on to the MALE-class. How did the APD-115T engine turn out for the Orion UAV? What can you tell about it?
            - Base APD-115T for UAV "Orion" is an imported analogue, modified by domestic turbocharging installations and an engine management system.

            The first engine was made on the basis of a foreign aircraft internal combustion engine with a capacity of 100 hp. By itself, this is a good engine with a decent resource. But according to the terms of reference, it is not suitable for our tasks. First of all, because of the element base (sensors, actuators, connectors) used on the engine.

            When we were just connected to work, at CIAM he stood at the stand with the turbine already installed, but did not give the required parameters. The engine control unit (ECU - engine control unit) made in the USA did not allow the engine to operate in turbocharging mode: the control system did not understand that there was an increased air consumption, and got up to self-locking. The adjustment tables were closed..

            When the bench tests of the KO-2 variant began, problems with sensors, actuators, ignition coils, electrical wiring, including connectors began to appear.

            The main problem was the transition to 27V power supply. The motor is originally designed for a nominal voltage of 12V, which, according to our regulatory framework, is unacceptable.

            And so, after about 50 hours of engine operation in bench conditions, disadvantages begin to appear. Of the most critical - piston rings sink, the edge of the piston burns, and so on..


            But I repeat, there is no emphasis on engines at all. Iran smuggles about 100 of them a year and produces its own UAVs on the Austrians. The export card of the company includes up to 400 private customers from more than 80 countries of the world. It is simply impossible to make such a motor sanctioned.

              You prefer to "wrap the fish" in that piece of the article where they write to Russians in white about the fact that all Orions are equipped with engines made in Rybinsk.

      There is nothing domestic in the global world.

      From large units, the engine - but this is not a problem at all. Even Iran illegally buys them in commercial quantities. Plus, by the 22nd there will be its own unlicensed variation of the Austrian.

      Optical station. The Argos2 set from South Africa arrives at NPK SPP, where an optical station with drives and a housing is assembled from it. In theory, this can be banned, but there is a domestic demonstrator, which is stupidly heavier, significantly (well, optics are worse). That is, by reducing the combat load, import substitution can be made.

      The rest is generally variable. Well, they will ban the supply of microcircuits from Taiwan and Malaysia, you can roll over to others from fraternal China.
