UAV "Chagala" created in Kazakhstan is at the final stage of testing

23

Developed by Kazakhstani scientists and created in Kazakhstan, the Shagala reconnaissance UAV, which means “seagull” in Russian, is at the final stage of testing. This drone aviation the complex was tested near the city of Nur-Sultan. The tests were personally attended by the head of the country's defense department, Nurlan Yermekbayev.


This was announced today by the press service of the Kazakh Ministry of Defense.

The development of the apparatus was carried out by specialists of the National University of Defense named after I. The first president of the Republic of Kazakhstan, and the customer was the country's defense department.

At the moment, the drone is undergoing the final stage of testing. The unmanned complex consists of ground equipment and the UAV itself. According to a representative of the press service of the Ministry of Defense, it is a high-tech system and has several degrees of protection.


It is argued that in terms of its characteristics, it does not lag behind foreign counterparts, but at a much cheaper price.

In the process of operation, the drone performs reconnaissance functions, that is, it determines the coordinates of ground objects and sends them to the operator. Its maximum flight range is 30 kilometers. The drone moves at a speed of up to 110 km / h and is able to climb to an altitude of 3,5 thousand meters.

    The aerodynamics of the nose is rather weak.
    The first drone is lumpy.

      She's not there at all, that aerodynamics))))
      The main principle is to show that they can too))))

      For a car speed of 110 km / h, it is quite normal. KamAZ, for example, has no better aerodynamics

    Strange, such a small and twin-engine ... well, the owner is a master

      Strange, so small and twin-engined

      What kind of freak is minus you, the question is literate, the efficiency is lower for two small-diameter screws.
      Here is another.
      A free nose is needed under the camera. We would have had to sculpt a screw at the back, the rudders would not be blown out (less efficiency at near-zero speeds), and a couple of spaced rails for the start would be made. Only screws of different rotation could be supplied for complete symmetry of the machine. This is not a problem for an electric motor.
      But landing from a flat spin on the "airbag" is an interesting thing. Well done.

        They didn’t come up with it, it seems like the first projects were from Israel, and even in the Russian Federation the eagles also land ...

    Two, maximum three hours in the air. It’s not enough.
    It is interesting how the electronics and especially the battery will behave under conditions of a decent daily temperature drop.
    If the price is really low, then it is possible for each platoon to use a UAV.

      It should be borne in mind that this is their first own experience. Astana was not built immediately.

      the platoon does not need such UAVs, the point is not even that you need to carry a catapult, antennas and consoles, but that the platoons need UAVs with VTOL (VTOL) to inspect small objects from difficult angles (for example, inspecting the windows of buildings in urban settlements for snipers / machine gunners / spotters).

      The launch rail looks like it was made of timber.
      Cheap and cheerful.

      Well done, a long way begins with the first step.

      The usefulness of this UAV (reconnaissance) is determined by the parameters of the camera.

    Well done Kazakhs! The vaccine has been created, the defense industry is being developed, science is also developing, especially after the EXPO exhibition held on its territory. The Kazakhs were lucky with the leaders and it's great.

      For the vaccine I have not heard I will not write, but for the defense, is a drone from the category of the simplest this forward movement ??? Are you talking about it now ??? In my opinion this is an attempt to catch up, plus it is not clear otkel components? The Turks also do strike drones, but they cut off supplies and their optimism diminished, plus there is no data on its at least some use in conditions of post-interference interference, so it takes time to understand what it is, bravado or a workhorse.

        What's the difference where the components and stuff come from? The main thing is what they do! Developing! Other countries of Central Asia, for example, cannot create anything of their own, even up to the standard of living, as they are far from in Kazakhstan. For the vaccine, read it on the internet. They created their own vaccine KazVak based on the developments of Soviet virology. Moreover, it is of very high quality and without side effects, like the Chinese one. Even Israeli journalists interviewed the creator of the vaccine and praised the Kazakh specialists.

        By and large, for Turkey in terms of drones, these sanctions have not created insurmountable problems.
        They have a whole line of drones and in each case they are solved differently. One of the drones has a gasoline engine that is massively used in civilian life - there is no difficulty in purchasing gaskets through some kind of company.
        French-Canadian camera, made our own, it turned out to be larger in size and weight, but better in terms of performance.
        There is a problem with engines for new large shock drones, let's see how it will develop with motors. I suppose that Turkey is not satisfied with the production option in Ukraine, they will try to steal and buy technology and, as a result, organize production at home.

      Well done Kazakhs! IN

      And the fact that in Kazakhstan Russian "to the fig" is already not worth remembering? Until 1936 there was no Kazakh state or Kazakh nationality! There was Kazakstan (Cossack Stan) and the "collective" name "Kirghiz" of nomadic tribes (clans) from the Caspian Sea to Altai! Artificially created "state education" ("autonomy") of the Kazakhs appeared at the will of the Bolsheviks until 1936 and were originally called "Cossack * formations *" and inhabited them by "Cossack Kirghiz"! Again, "thanks to" the Bolsheviks, the "Cossack-Kyrgyz" were renamed into "Kazakhs", and "Kazakstan" into "Kazakhstan"! The reason, it seems, was the fact that among the "Cossack-Kirghiz" some kind of clan (maybe a tribe) with the name Kazakhs was wandering! In 1936, again by the will of the Bolsheviks (by the will of Stalin), the union republic of Kazakhstan was formed by incorporating Siberian, Orenburg, and Ural Cossack lands into the territory of the "state"! Russian lands! The Kazakhs then turned out to be less than the Russian population! The Russian population was given to the "Kazakhs" as serfs! The Kazakhs "acquired lands dozens of times larger than what they had! After the liquidation of the USSR and the acquisition of" independence "by Kazakhstan, various discrimination and oppression fell upon the Russians! A massive outflow of the Russian population began ... and it was then that it became clear that the Kazakhs themselves the best way to sit in a teahouse and slaughter sheep! Only Russians worked in more or less technologically advanced industries! In the management of the economy and science, the Russians played the first violin! As a result of the outflow of Russian (Russian-speaking) specialists, the leading industries began to decline! then the Kazakhs came to their senses ... like Kazakh nationalism began to become more expensive! Russian (Russian-speaking) specialists began to be held back ... the manifestations of nationalism at the "official" level softened ... But on the whole it does not mean that the problems of discrimination Kazakhstan disappeared! What is the replacement of the Cyrillic alphabet in the Latin alphabet in the Kazakh language!

    I think this is just the beginning. In combat conditions, even old technology can play a role. If you take your ingenuity to help. In the recent war, the Azerbaijanis used ordinary corn trucks as drones.

    Judging by the photo to the article, it is cheaper than "foreign counterparts" only because of the launch pad, which is made of Kazakh boards. Everything else is Chinese. yes
