Yak-130 will turn into a shock drone

41
Adviser to the first deputy head of the KRET, Vladimir Mikheev, said that the Yak-130 training and combat aircraft could become a shock drone, the capabilities of which would be superior to the American MQ-9 Reaper.




“Despite its small size, the upgraded Yak-130 can effectively solve a whole range of attack aircraft and fourth-generation multi-role fighters. At the same time, its application will be much more effective from the point of view of economy and unpretentiousness in basing. The elements of the Yak-130 are not only the fight against terrorism and gangs, but also the war with modern combat units. The capabilities of the new radar and sighting system will allow the aircraft to strike blows without entering the zone of the enemy's air defense, ”he said. "Russian newspaper".

At the moment, the company's employees are working on new equipment for the aircraft: an optical-electronic sighting and navigation complex and a radar station, which will be controlled by a single on-board computer capable of using high-precision anti-tank missiles, as well as means of defeating air targets of medium and short range. Airborne radar can detect targets at a great distance and direct air-to-surface and air-to-air missiles at them, which brings the characteristics of the Yak-130 to the capabilities of the Su-25 attack aircraft, and in some cases even to the multi-purpose Su-30CM.

In addition, according to Mikheev, the development of an unmanned version is possible - the concern has all the necessary groundwork for this, however, significant changes in onboard electronics will be required.

      But don’t you tell me, is there a development scheme for using it in the mode of a pack of hounds when a flock of drones is controlled from a base aircraft, for example, a drone, within the radio horizon? So, the noise immunity of the control channel will be much higher than driving the signal through satellites. And control can be carried out with the highest overloads, the pilots are on the sidelines, but not far. Not?

        Something is too much piled on one unarmored subsonic aircraft. Here is the "tank" Su-25, here is the heavy Su-30SM - everything is dumped in a heap. First, to satisfy the need for TRAINING aircraft. How many of them are required in the VAUL? To remind you that under the USSR L-29 and L-39 also flew in DOSAAF? How many now ?

          then there were no modern flight simulators. therefore, a lot of training aircraft were required. Now training, in many ways, is virtual.

        But while there is no stamp ...
        It is a pity that he can not carry the RVVSD R-77, only the R-73. There would be an additional option. And so - instead of risking a life on a theater pilot a very good car, the operator will be in Moscow, sitting in the kompyru, de facto, playing.
        And technically, it’s easy to turn into UAVs.

      Not that it’s not effective - natural wrecking! negative It looks more like a heavy drone cannot be made stupidly. Announced the MiG at one time at MAKS tailless, immediately intercepted Po in the "Sukhoi" budget line and ....... the guys overstrained the campaign - they swallowed more than they could digest and now they can't give out shit to the campaign - just constipation with a heavy shock drone, these runs and went about reworking a normally flying serial airplane by homemade ones.

        Support.
        Here the theme is this: a number of countries cannot buy drone UAVs, probably a kind of tandem is considered here, the combined use of UAVs, detection and target designation. And the YAK-130 as a weapon carrier.

          Ali's bike is not for you to judge, but it was infa that in the 90s Iraq under Sadam bought game consoles, playstation or another manufacturer. For the sake of microchips and software. The meaning of installation on airplanes that he had 21 and 23. Turning them into a kind of UAV, kamikaze. But there are all sorts of agreements on armament. Of course, the "shop" was covered. There are a lot of legal subtleties as it will be considered.
          And as for the MIG-23, I’ll say it was the case that the pilot ejected and the plane flew across Europe, the same thing happened with the Yak-38 (28?), It also flew a lot.

            I won’t say for Saddam, but with such things - to make a flying, guided bomb out of a production aircraft, we dabbled at the beginning of World War II and the Angles at the same time. Nothing good came of it. Puseps seems to be flying as a tester on such a TB-3, asking him not to grab control during take-off and landing, while Kennedy’s older brother seems to have died in self-explosion - he lifted the car.

        A drone, in the event of a defeat by the Air Force or Air Defense, will not carry the pilot into the coffin. The most expensive are people. A drone can be reproduced, a person - no.

      Well, yes.
      Huge plans, let's see what burns out.
      In general, it scares me when our plans are invented. 90% as a rule fades away, only annoyance remains.
      By the way, and by the same principle it is impossible to convert the MiG-35 or Su-32 into drones ??

        Now, the equipment allows making any aircraft unmanned (simplified radio-controlled aircraft models have existed for a long time). But, the geometry, mass, of an aircraft originally designed for other purposes, does not always allow you to take advantage of the capabilities available for a drone (for example, it can withstand loads that are significantly higher than those that a pilot can withstand).

      bully Why redo it, just a successful glider with improvements will be used for an unmanned project. Why not use an excellent base for various modifications and types?

      Although I would take even the obsolete, but time-tested gliders Yak-7 or Yak-9 or La-5, using new materials, an engine, telemetry, weapons, I gave a second life in an unmanned version.

    As a drone, I am confused by the size (although, to be honest, I don't know the size of the MQ-9 Reaper) and the RCS of the machine. For operations in conditions of strong air defense, the glider must still be created using stealth technologies. In the case of use against irregular formations ("partisans"), yes, in terms of price-quality ratio, the cost of operating the machine will be in demand.

      The manned Yak has a range of up to 1300 km. In conditions without a pilot use case, the installation of additional fuel tanks in the vacant space can reach 2000 km. Of course, this is not an option of the American MQ-9 Reaper, designed for many hours of barging over a specific area in order to search for and hit a target at the operator’s command. The yak will be used as a strike unit, according to the explored target.

      what maybe on the principle of a relay? Through other UAVs they transmit to each other, or via satellites, probes, etc. But the range does not mean that he must fly this distance straight, he will circle over a given territory

    I consider plans to make a UAV out of an excellent manned aircraft no more than a PR of YAK and its associates to squeeze extra money from the budget. And her, the company, can be understood because after the completion of the development of this aircraft, hundreds of workers of design and test services remain out of work, and they somehow need to be kept at the company and at the same time sometimes even fed. Therefore, the media are filled with speeches by the heads of many defense industry companies who beat themselves in the wide chest promising to give something "unparalleled" to the mountain, without thinking about who needs it and is it not wiser to create what the Armed Forces really need for the money requested Russia. It is sad that this bait is not only caught by the gullible and not entirely informed public, but also by many high-ranking Customers. And then it turns out that there is no money left for something without which it is really impossible to fight.

One undoubted plus is saving on medical fees and non-lethality of flyers, and mass learning is orders of magnitude higher ... everything will depend on the quality of electronic filling ... but plus - on any ..!

    They write, just to write. A drone and an ordinary airplane are TWO DIFFERENT DESIGNS. The plane is designed for such loads that the pilot can withstand, or even a piece of iron. And still, modern drones are reconnaissance-strike systems. First they evaluate the situation, if necessary- find a blow. FLIGHT TIME is 24 hours or more. What is to be connected to the Yak-130 railway tank? It has a different fate - let it train pilots, but not the attack aircraft, and the drone. yes hi
