    Russia Builds Glide Bomb Virtually Invisible to Radar


    Russia has built a glide aviation bomb unlike any other in the world, online newspaper Svobodnaya Pressa reported citing the General Director of NPO "Basalt" Vladimir Porhachev.

    The new bomb, dubbed “Drill” is virtually invisible to radar and has a range of over 30 kilometers. “It has no engine. When dropped, it acquires its target and zooms in with the help of the GLONASS global positioning system. The cluster charge opens up at an altitude of 250 meters. I hope that the bomb will pass all the tests already before this year is out,” Vladimir Porhachev said. The Drill is 3 meters long, almost half a meter wide and weighs 540 kilograms. The dropping altitudes range from 14 kilometers to just 100 meters. The bomb is equipped with heat-seeking and radar-based elements and is immune to radio-electronic countermeasures.

    Even though the Drill’s effective range of 30-plus kilometers is four times less than that of America’s GBU-39 gliding bomb (110 km), its explosives-per-mass ratio is better.

    The Drill, developed primarily for the T-50 new generation fighter, is a stealth bomb, which means that it will not be detected by infrared-homing antimissiles, even though it will be less invisible on radar. And, finally, it is packed with 15 individually targeted cluster sub-munitions, each weighing about 20 kilograms, which means that it does not fall under the provisions of an international convention banning the use of cluster bombs. Russian sub-munitions are way smarter than their US counterparts because they can find and destroy targets that produce no infrared emissions. Moreover, when dropped on a tank battlefield the Drill’s friend-or-foe identification system will only hit enemy tanks without harming its own. Moreover, the Russian sub-munitions are considerably more destructive than their American versions, with a single cluster capable of taking out up to ten tanks – almost twice as many as America’s AGM-154, the newspaper wrote. The Drill’s cluster charge can also carry bunker-bursting BETA-M elements, all making the Drill a totally unique weapon.

    More information on Aviation Training

    MOSCOW, Oct. 3 - RIA Novosti Over 500 students of the Krasnodar Higher Military Aviation School (KVVAUL, branch VUNTS Force FSI Russian "Air Force Academy") completed the flying practice in training and combat training aircraft on profiles fighter, tactical bombers, assault. , military transport, long-distance and anti-submarine aircraft, said Monday the Department of information and mass communications of the Russian Defense Ministry.

    "More than 500 students of the Krasnodar Higher pilots Military School in 2016, received a solid knowledge and successfully passed the theoretical training, have been flying practice on education and training and combat aircraft flying practice was conducted in four profiles of aviation:. Fighter, frontline bombers, attack aircraft, military -Transportation, long-range aviation and anti-submarine aircraft, "- said in a statement.

    About 350 students of the third course KVVAUL first took to the skies on the L-39 aircraft to airfields Tikhoretsk, Michurinsk, Maikop, Nyquist (the profiles of operational and tactical aircraft and long-range aviation); on the L-410 aircraft - with Rtishchevo airfield (on the profile of military transport aircraft).

    More than 150 students of the fourth year practiced on the Yak-130 (the profile of fighter aircraft) at the airport Armavir, L-39 aircraft (the profile of distant aircraft) at the airport Kotelnikovo on AN-26 (on the profile of military transport aircraft) on Balashov airport.

    The checks carried out before an independent flight cadets have shown that in general they have a good piloting technique, high moral and psychological preparation and orientation for summer work. During the period of summer internship students have mastered the technique of piloting, air navigation and combat use. Total flying time each cadet KVVAUL made more than 80 hours.

    The Radio Plant is the producer of the Polyana-D4M1 air defense missile brigade Automated Command and Control System (ACCS).

    "Two Polyana-D4M1 air defense missile brigade automated command and control systems have been manufactured by the plant, accepted by the Defense Ministry and dispatched to units," Ratnikov said on the single military hardware acceptance day.

    "The third system has been produced and then accepted by Defense Ministry representatives. The system is planned to be dispatched on November 3, 2016," he added.

    According to the CEO, the system is designed for effective command and control of an air defense missile brigade or a composite air defense force operating the S-300 (NATO reporting name: SA-10 Grumble) and Buk (SA-17 Grizzly) surface-to-air missile systems.

    "The system can simultaneously track up to 255 aerial targets at a visibility distance of 6,000 kilometers (3,728 miles)," Ratnikov said.

    The 9S52M1 Polyana-D4M1 air defence brigade (mixed grouping) automated command and control system is designed to provide automated control of separate air defence missile systems, and their ombinations, making up air defence grouping, with the S-300, Buk, Tor AD missile systems and Tunguska gun-missile systems, via relevant command and control posts.

    Huge News! Apparently the Mi-24 flying laboratory for the next gen high-speed helicopter not only reached it's milestone of 400km/h, which was supposed to be the maximum speed, but instead surpassed it! The new helicopter blade design was the key to achieving this, as it succeeded to overcome the "locking" effect of high speed flight, and their going to push the max speed beyond the original goal of 400km/h to 460km/h:


    On the Internet actively discussing information about the speed trials, a flying laboratory, built on the basis of the Mi-24K, which "came" from the Ministry of Defense of Russia. However, it is strange that management of the holding "Russian Helicopters" is silent on this matter.

    Flying Lab demonstrator (LL-A) long-term high-speed helicopter technology (PSV), created with the aim of improving the support system in the framework of the Mi-X3 is gradually fed to the test flights on speed. The first test flight of the helicopter demonstrator has made December 23, 2015

    The main technical feature of the demonstrator helicopter, the project is a new generation of experimental blade main rotor. Experimental blades designed to prevent flutter and overcome the "locking" effect. The design of the carrying system using the results of the latest domestic research in the field of aerodynamics, strength and materials. On-demonstrator helicopter is equipped with two domestic engine VK-2500-01. Maximum take-off weight fast flying laboratory, which is piloted by a pilot, is 11.5 m Developers originally claimed that the helicopter demonstrator will develop a maximum speed of over 400 km / h and cruising make 340 -. 360 km / h. It can be argued with reference to the military (Chief of the 220th Military Colonel Eugene Poluyanova Russian Defense Ministry representative), stated that the milestone reached.

    The program is the creation of long-term Russian helicopter under the CWC project is divided into two stages: the development of machines for the commercial operation of high-speed helicopter and military. The experimental results showed that at the current stage of the helicopter with a high cruising speed (500 km / h) will be a significant cost for the commercial operators. For civil users indicators such as high cruising speed, it turned out to be less significant than the indicator "operating costs". We are working to create a long-term medium-lift helicopter with the speed of about 360 km / h for commercial use, which will incorporate that were worked on the program.

    Officially it announced that for the Russian Ministry of Defense implementation of research work to further improve the speed in horizontal flight up to 460 km / h and above will continue.

    Pilot a helicopter company "Miles" in flight exceeded the barrier of 400 km / h

    As that article mentions the key criteria for most commercial users of helos, the key features will be ability to operate from helo pads, to be able to navigate in cities and other odd places, and economics of operation.

    Top speed is not that critical... if speed is so important then you would take a small helo to a nearby airfield and transfer to a fixed wing aircraft and get the speed and range of a fixed wing aircraft to a small airfield near your destination to a small helo to fly directly to where you want to go.

    For the military it would be useful in moving troops slightly faster, but you would not it to be twice as expensive just for an increase in speed.

    Like the Su-25 there is no value in extra speed for some aircraft... some people are fixated with high speed, but all transport and civilian airliners are subsonic at the moment. There have been supersonic transports of people and material but not hugely successful... and very much a niche market.

    In terms of technology this is very interesting and good news for Mil as this technology can presumably be applied to the entire existing helo fleet to increase performance across the board.
