“The device, developed by a consortium of companies Elbit Systems and Bluebird, is a motorized paraglider, in which the wing is controlled by servo drives from the loading platform. The aircraft itself is equipped with an horsepower 300 engine. In the air, the Flying Elephant can reach speeds up to 83 kilometers per hour and deliver cargoes weighing up to 1,5 tons to a given point using GPS coordinates. ”- said the agency.

It is noted that all the UAV control equipment "is installed on a cargo platform, which is equipped with wheelsets and special shock absorbers, which ensures a soft landing."

The contract for the creation of this UAV was concluded in the interests of the Israeli Ministry of Defense in 2011. The military plan to use the device to deliver ammunition and provisions to the units in advanced positions.

    Why not deliver cargoes with an airship? This is a great target - as you can practice in the dash. It may be a good invention, but, in my opinion, its scope is narrow ...

        As a vehicle for civilian objects - interesting, but for military purposes - big doubts. Huge wing and 83 km / h? An ideal target even for small arms ...

        Well, they say that there is no shovel with a motor! If there are Jews, then there is a motor. Attach to what you want!
        But the question is, to disassemble 1,5 tons of cargo at the front line and to pull along the trenches, how many people do you need? And then from a mortar or something else they’ll shoot! What is wrong here guys. Modest, more secretive in my opinion.

          But in my opinion the idea is not bad. Dropping on a simple cargo parachute, it is not known what the wind is below, and where it will fall, and sometimes accuracy is needed.

          It would be something to take away, the rest of the details. Better to run a little with a load than to suck a paw and shoot a groin-groin finger.

              So the helicopter and people in transport on the ground - all can be destroyed

              The point is that the design is cheap and unmanned - people stay intact

              Reasonable and useful development

                I completely agree with this conclusion.
                In any case, an accurate discharge without casualties and unnecessary losses.
                By the way, it’s also suitable for rescue operations where there are no foot approaches: islands, ice floes, etc. cases.

                  Totally agree with you. As a military development - it is very doubtful, but as a technique for the Ministry of Emergencies - it is indispensable, especially in the Siberian open spaces, and for the Arctic.
                  It's just that the "chosen ones" do not have such a need, due to the absence of both the Arctic and taiga lol

                    With one huge "but" - it folds perfectly with a small crosswind. Such "inventions" can only be verified by deeds. There is in any army a huge part of it - the rear service.

                      It seems that I recognized this trough, it seemed to be initially declared without any wing and there were serious doubts that the device is capable of making any kind of serious flights.
                      So it really didn’t fly.

                And for some reason everyone is trying on active actions with close fire contact. For a convoy - an irreplaceable thing. I think our suppliers would definitely not refuse. And if you think about it, in our climatic conditions, and in regions where you can’t always drive an all-terrain vehicle, this thing would help the civilians.

            And what if the "cunning Jews" decided to supply raiders or encircled people in the dark? Then the effectiveness of the machine gun will not be the same, and the robot is not to lose the crew and the helicopter, because a soulless piece of iron, and I don’t think the price will be too exorbitant.

        It’s possible to get there, only a paraglider can give a damn about a certain number of holes per square meter, and they won’t have time anymore. Jews will cover very quickly. For MANPADS is practically not available, except for the type of Willow. For GOS, the paraglider is invisible, and the engine is practically not needed when landing. So the thing is real, albeit cheap

        Uhhh, not really ... There were no problems with detection balls, but knocking him down was a big problem. Several through holes led only to some loss of altitude, but they performed the flight mission. Everyone who served in the first line of air defense in Soviet times, especially in the north, can confirm this. And the means to destroy the ball is much more expensive than the ball itself. The idea with a paraglider is beautiful and its application can be found unambiguously ... And using the troops it will already be possible to identify strengths and weaknesses. A drone can be controlled from the ground, then it is vulnerable along the control line, or it can fly according to the program, almost without communication with the ground ... You can get around everything. A torn parachute does not hurt to complete the route, and in addition, you can organize cover and suppression of enemy firing points. The supply of advanced ammunition can be arranged cheaper, and in some cases even faster than in all other ways. Well done designers. It is necessary to adopt and develop. And then immediately to criticism. You can criticize everything, even the classics.

      I do not agree. Any transport is poorly protected. In this case, loss of life can be avoided. Moreover, it is not assumed that the goods will go through enemy territory, as well as the movement of vehicles. But disputed territories can be flown at such a speed with a certain risk of losing cargo. The price of which will be clearly higher than the price of the device. I think this direction is promising and easily achievable. By the way, I was once laughed at by the statement that drones have a future of intelligence and target designation. I think that we are seeing an emerging new direction in logistics. And not only military.

      Maybe. But its cost is very extremely small. Because the mover is the motor from the mowing machine, and the bearing surface is a piece of synthetic matter with synthetic ropes.
      In addition, if it flies along GPS coordinates, only sooo expensive equipment can knock it out of the way. But physically destroying it in the air also makes little sense. Unless only with barrel artillery, and even that is doubtful.

          Of course, it will be suitable for starting from its territory, but how will it take off from the place of delivery, for the return journey?
          Such a large one-way drone is not very rational. Easier then just a remotely landing towed glider. Better yet, just a cargo parachute system. How is it done now.

Who said that such a thing is easy to hit with a machine gun? This is if she makes her way to the surrounded. And if on the front line, from the rear, and on the shaver? You shoot a lot on this, from a distance of 2 km, and in the conditions of the Israeli artillery. How do they guard soldiers! Straight envy take. True, recently, we have also improved, but such platforms are not yet being developed.

      The task to create this apparatus was received from the military in 2007 after summing up the first results of VLV.
      12.08.06/53/053 - helicopter CH-114 ("Yasur"), tail number 5, 9th squadron "Moviley ha-Layla" was shot down in southern Lebanon, near the village of Yatar. 310 crew members were killed: pilots Major Nisan Shalev and Captain Daniel Gomez and three flight mechanics: Major Sami Ben Naim, Warrant Officer (RASAM) Ron Mashiach and Sergeant Major Keren Tendler (the only female soldier who died during the war). Hezbollah said the helicopter was shot down by a Waad missile. Initially, it was assumed that we are talking about an ATGM, but later it was concluded that the helicopter was shot down by a 1K16 Igla-XNUMX MANPADS missile (SA-XNUMX Gimlet).
      it finally became clear that the supply of troops in areas of a mixed b / d line, and even more so in the development zone with the help of helicopters, is an increased risk due to the saturation of light infantry with air defense systems and which should be avoided.

        You are right, but in part. The task for the design of this papaats was issued really following the results of that war, but was not connected with helicopters. The reason for the creation is the few cargoes that landed at the positions of the hezbalons. The first thing they decided to tie to GPS to an existing parachute, and then they decided to add the option to work without media, on their own.

          It is commendable, but it also says that you have a war there. A strange war is a strange weapon. You will find use for fighting cocks if you look carefully.
          But along Stalingrad, from the frozen corpses (mine and Germans), the firing points were laid out. And where the division is TFA, it is simply unthinkable to grind and spit to carry shells, fuel and even more food through the air. It is incorrect to compare the semi-police nonsense of the occupation regime with the military operations of at least the combined arms army.

            The new Tact missile system (Spike-SR) is one of the members of the Spike family, which also includes the Gil ATGM (Spike-MR), the Gomed ATGM (Spike-LR), the Perah Bar ATGM ( Spike-ER) and ATGM "Tamuz" (Spike-NLOS). It is intended for use by infantry units. The Rafael concern notes that we are talking about high-precision missiles
            Demonstration of the Takt missile system will take place as part of the selection of candidates for work in the Rafael concern among Technion students.
            The press service of the concern reports that of the 6.500 employees of Raphael, approximately 2.000 are graduates of the Technion, and 350 are students of this university. Basically, these are people specializing in programming, electronics, aeronautics, mechanical engineering.
