    Maybe Serbia might finally be able to defend a hydro-electric dam, or prevent a piece of it's territory from breaking off like cookies being dunked in to a glass of milk. Wink BTW does Serbia have any drones comparable to Buran, or Avantegard? I'm asking for a friend

    And what makes you think that civilians​ are relevant in armed conflict?

    The claims that Russia is behind in UAVs normally centres around their lack of murderbots as used by the US to kill innocent civilians by their thousands.

    How can the population of a country not be relevant in an armed conflict... do you not know what total war is?

    If Saddam could kill Americans on American streets with UCAVs do you think the Americans would have been so keen to attack him and corner him the way they did?

    Or better yet, what do civilians have to do with topic at hand?

    As Russian UCAV technology gets better and better the west, particularly NATO will start demanding restrictions and limitations to their development and use because they will fear the Russians using them the way the Americans have been using them and the Israelis have been using them.


    Well those drones we do make don't require helicopter in order to function, just saying...

    Zala are creating a wing mounted bin that holds 4-6 UAVs that can be released from behind cover and flown over the hill to scout for threats and targets ahead. They have an enormous range of other UAVs too that are actually in service and operational... and soon they will have hypersonic drones that neither the US or Israel have yet... just saying...

    In the Ministry of Defense revealed the dates of the first flight of the shock UAV "Hunter"

    The Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation reported on the start date of testing of UAVs "Altius", "Pacer" and "Hunter".

    Heavy Russian drone "Hunter" will rise into the air in the spring of next year. This was announced by the Deputy Minister of Defense of the Russian Federation, Alexey Krivoruchko, in an exclusive interview in the “Serving Russia” program.

    “Next year, the“ Hunter ”will be put to the test. Work on this project is a priority, it goes on a good level. In the spring we expect the first flight of this drone. This is a serious task for us, ”said Krivoruchko.

    The Deputy Minister of Defense also said that the press reports about the cessation of work on the heavy Altius drone do not correspond to reality.

    We really have a change, this work is being done by another contractor. Next year, this aircraft will be lifted into the air, ”Krivoruchko stressed.

    He also noted that next year is expected to complete work on the “Pacer”(Orion?) drone.

    Check out this webpage on Lidar with Russian UAVs... those videos show the data captured by a Lidar system... the detail is amazing...

    http://zala.aero/lazernoe-skanirovanie-lidar/

    Make sure you select English language from the drop down box top right on the page.

    Can recommend the entire rest of this website, it is the Zala website and it is very interesting... it is part of the Kalashnikov concern group...

    In Russia, created the first impact drone interceptor "Carnivor"

    According to the developers, the device can use cassettes for fragmentation and high-explosive ammunition and reconnaissance equipment.

    MOSCOW, December 13. / TASS /. The first small impact drone "Karnivora", capable of intercepting other drones and use high-explosive bombs, was created in Russia and is undergoing flight tests. This was announced on Thursday by TASS in the development company of the Scientific-Production Firm "Mikran".

    “This is a small class drummer who can start from unprepared platforms and cannibalize for 10-15 hours, as well as respond to threats, such as mortar points. This is the first instance of such a machine,” said Mikran. The device was called "Carnivor" (Latin Carnivora - carnivorous), clarified in the company.

    According to the developers, the drone can use netballs to intercept quadcopters, several types of cassettes for fragmentation and high-explosive ammunition, reconnaissance equipment. Currently, the company specified, the prototype of the device is undergoing factory flight tests.

    The wingspan of the drone is five meters, the maximum take-off weight is 40 kg, the flight speed is up to 150 km / h.

    The device is able to work in the conditions of electronic suppression with the complete loss of satellite navigation signals, has a large cargo hold (35 liters) and a sliding wing to align the centering.

    Opportunities and Purpose

    According to the presentation available at TASS, in the Karnivor interceptor version, it is used to protect particularly important military or infrastructure facilities. Shooting grids are placed in the cargo hold to capture drones. After the shot, the net opens, seizes the enemy's apparatus in the air and lands with it on a parachute.

    In the shock version in the cargo compartment is placed a block with ammunition. These can be serial hand-made high-explosive fragmentation grenades, grenades from grenade launchers, anti-tank aerial bombs of the PTAB 2.5-1.5 type with a shaped charge, as well as anti-personnel fragmentation high-explosive charges of the AO-2.5RT cluster used in cluster aerial bombs of the RBK-500 type. .

    The onboard computer calculates the point and angle of the bombing, after which the drone is displayed in the position most suitable for the use of weapons. The presentation demonstrated a dive and a cabre strike (the maneuver of the aircraft in a vertical plane with a nose up and climb during bombing).

    The presentation also notes that the drone can operate both under the control of the operator and offline. In the first case, the range is 150 km (limited by communication with the operator), in the second - 500 km (limited by fuel). Transportation, launch and control of the UAV takes place from the vehicle on the KamAZ chassis.

    Impact drone of Russia

    Earlier it was reported that in Russia are developing several types of attack unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs). However, they all belong to the class of heavy or medium UAVs.

    This is a shock version of the Forpost, an average reconnaissance drone, a medium-length long-range UAV Kronstadt UAV, a reconnaissance and drone UAV weighing up to five tons, the Altair, and the sixth-generation heavy UAV, developed by Sukhoi ". On the drones that have the ability to intercept other devices have not previously been reported.

    In Russia, developed targets to simulate a swarm attack drones

    Also, the creators of the Thor anti-aircraft complexes told about a cruise missile simulating a stealth target.


    MOSCOW, December 27. / TASS /. Izhevsk Electromechanical Plant "Kupol" (part of the VKO "Almaz-Antey" concern) has developed a target complex with unmanned aerial vehicles of various types, which allows anti-aircraft gunners to work off the reflection of the attack of the drones. TASS was informed about this by the director for military-technical cooperation and the execution of the state defense order of the enterprise, the director of the Target Complexes project Igor Ivanov.

    “The highlight of the“ Adjutant ”complex, which includes an imitation of a swarm of drones - TASS) is that under the control of one ground control station, two operators can simultaneously lift up to six air targets and control them in a single field. we create a target swarm of different types of targets, "said Ivanov.

    According to him, using drones with different characteristics, it is possible to create an air situation as close as possible to the combat one. “Some are flying low, others are high, fast, slow, and so on. In this case, the effect of getting as close to a real battle is achieved,” the agency’s source said.

    Initially, the complex was created to provide training and combat firing anti-aircraft missile systems "Thor", but in the process of developing engineers "Dome" found a wider use of "Adjutant."

    “When we got the result, we realized that this thing is needed not only to the Torah. Everyone needs it absolutely, starting from man-portable air defense systems, then to short-range, short-range, medium-range systems, and just recently we worked through large systems range in the near zone of destruction ", - added the director of the project.

    Stealth target
    Ivanov added that the company also developed an inconspicuous target missile that mimics cruise missiles made using stealth technology.

    "This is a real imitation of a cruise missile, which allows you to train the calculations of the entire line of air defense systems (anti-aircraft missile systems) of the Ground Forces [of the Russian Armed Forces]," said Ivanov. He clarified that the target missile is part of the Adjutant target training complex.

    According to Ivanov, the target can fly in all modes and with all the overloads that a real cruise missile is experiencing. The target height of its flight is 100 meters - this is the safe height for opening the parachute on which it lands. However, for combat training shooting, the target can fly much lower, as well as the real conventional enemy cruise missiles.

    The project director noted that in order to increase the visibility of the target, mounting points for corner or lens reflectors are provided. Without the use of reflectors, specified Ivanov, the visibility of the target is comparable to the most subtle aerial targets. "Without an EPR lens (an effective scattering surface, in radiolocation, an increased EPR value means greater radar visibility of the object - TASS note) of the target - about 0.1 m, with a lens - up to 1 meter," the agency interlocutor explained.

    He noted that all the parameters of the target were tested by the Central Research Institute of the Aerospace Defense Forces in Tver.
