Corporation "Irkut" has started testing unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) in the framework of development work "Breakthrough" (previously known as project "Yak-133").
The device is able to conduct reconnaissance and, if necessary, destroy enemy targets, while remaining invisible to his radar. Novelty is based on the original aerodynamic design and looks very different from traditional aircraft.
In the future, the newest drone will be equipped with guided missiles "air-land" and the bombs and opto-electronic systems and complexes of electronic intelligence and even radar.
The armament of the UAV until the end is not yet determined, but it is already known that a stationary target UAV will destroy the bombs with laser and optical homing and guided by the GLONASS signal.
STRIKE UNMANNED AERIAL VEHICLE UC-133 "BREAKTHROUGH"
Blah BLAH Yak-133БР family "Breakthrough" being developed, as already mentioned, on the basis of the Yak-130, so the UAV has much in common with combat aircraft.All three versions represent a modern and powerful drones that have the names of the "Breakthrough-U" (drums), "Breakthrough-R" (reconnaissance), "Breakthrough-RLD" (radar watch).According to the draft of the new UAV will have the following technical characteristics: the service ceiling of the UAV "Break-In" amounts to 16,000 m, "Breakthrough-R" — m 20000 "Breakthrough-RLD" — 14000 m. the Starting mass "Breakthrough" will be 10000 kg, "Breakthrough-R" — 9800 kg, "Breakthrough-RLD" — 10000 kg Mass of the target equipment "Break-In" will reach 1,000 to 3,000 kg, "Breakthrough-R" — 1000 to 1200 kg, "Breakthrough-RLD" — 1000 kg.
Speed drones are not inferior to a good combat aircraft, and even surpass them: "Break-In" will be accelerated to 1100 km/h, "Breakthrough-R" — 750 km/h, "Breakthrough-RLD" — 750 km/h. the duration of the flight all three aircraft are different, for example, "Breakthrough", will be able to fly for 20 hours, "Breakthrough-RLD" — 16, "Breakthrough-R" — only for 6 hours. All three vessels are designed to overcome long distances.
