Ukraine announced the launch of a new drone capable of flying "thousands of kilometers" by the end of 2022

By the end of this year, Ukraine is going to put into operation an unmanned aerial vehicle of its own production. This was announced by the manager of "Ukroboronprom" Oleg Boldyrev.


According to a company representative, the drone will be able to fly "thousands of kilometers" and carry up to 75 kilograms of combat payload. According to Boldyrev, the device has a take-off weight of more than 200 kg.

To date, the first tests of an unmanned vehicle have already been carried out. Ukroboronprom is confident that the UAV will “definitely fly” in the foreseeable future.

Until now, the Ukrainian military has mainly used Turkish-made Bayraktar UAVs and old Soviet Tu-143 Reis and Tu-141 Strizh drones, with which various incidents were associated in the early stages of the special military operation.

For example, one Tu-141 fell right in Croatian Zagreb. There are also actually Ukrainian developments, for example, the Leleka 100 UAV for reconnaissance purposes, the Furia UAV. Now Ukraine is concerned about the creation of heavy attack drones that could inflict significant damage on Russian troops.

The launch of a new Ukrainian drone does not mean that Ukraine will be able to produce such devices on an industrial scale, especially against the backdrop of the destruction of the energy infrastructure and defense industries. But you need to be aware that, under the guise of its own strike UAVs, Ukraine can also use those delivered from abroad. In this regard, Ukroboronprom will act only as a screen.

      .According to a company representative, the drone will be able to fly "thousands of kilometers" and carry up to 75 kilograms of combat load. According to Boldyrev, the device has a take-off weight of more than 200 kg.


      This is the performance characteristics of BBP Geranium-2. They stupidly copy it.

      . The main reason for a possible new threat to Russia lies precisely in the primitiveness of such weapons. I don’t even doubt that Ukraine, stung by its suddenly revealed impotence, is literally capable of riveting something like the Russian Geraniums out of “shit and sticks” literally in a matter of months. Also - in hundreds or thousands of copies. Suppose - to establish the production of the simplest kamikaze drones in the workshops of the world-famous manufacturer of aircraft engines and engines for cruise missiles of the Motor Sich plant in Zaporozhye. It is possible - with the help of the Antonov Aviation Design Bureau, which remained in Kyiv, which once made the best military transport aircraft in the world. And what happens - to send it to Russian cities. Perhaps even to Moscow. Why not, if there are only 700 kilometers from Kharkov to the capital of the Russian Federation? And in the form for the progenitor of "Gerani-2" Iranian Shahed 136, let me remind you, the maximum flight range of 1000 kilometers is indicated. Then we will already face the same problem that the best minds of the Ukrainian sky defense organization are unsuccessfully struggling with today.

        In the UAV of the declared range, the most important thing to do is the satellite constellation, which leads it to the target throughout the entire path. The rest: wings, wheels and tails - the level of an ordinary workshop. Consequently, Ukraine can make such toys only focusing on the owner's companions and with his consent.

            Okay, let's say the gyrocompass has an error of only 0.1 degrees. After 2000 km, the drone will make a mistake in azimuth so that it will not get into the city. This is if there is no drift from a crosswind or from the effect of a propeller or other factors. Add to this the path error. And the need to maintain altitude while skirting the terrain.
            When you solve these puzzles .., cheaply, efficiently and without satellites - you will receive an order at least.

              For long-haul flights, a correction is needed, and if it is 30-50 km, there is not a very large deviation ..

      In fact, making a Shahed 136 UAV is very simple. Everything is available on the open market.

      Case - on an industrial 3D printer
      Controllers, actuators, GPS receiver, INS sensor, etc. - in the radio electronics market
      Engine - ICE or electric from moped/motorcycle/washing machine options on the market mass
      Write a program that would fly along the coordinates - 1rd year student level

      It’s strange that they haven’t done it yet, the work of a month for 3 and a dozen penny drones a day can be produced.

        Well, 3 months have not yet passed since the beginning of the "era of Shaheeds". And Ukraine will not shine them ahead of time. Until there is a quantity of 50+ copies - for delivering a massive strike deep into our territory. To maximize shock.

    Our task, first of all, is to suppress traffic flows from the outside to the UK-roin with weapons, ammunition, and equipment. Also, components for new drones will be trampled from Europe. It is necessary to identify the place of production of the UAV, and raze it to the ground. Do not let them expand production! And, take out traffic flows with everything that can be used for the military-industrial complex of Ukraine.
