    Rockets with AI

    "We have seen an example of this, and when the Americans used in Syria ... when you can redirect (rocket - TASS approx.) For the purposes in this direction are carried out, it is very serious applications requiring basic research To date some success there.. but to specifics, we still run for a few years ", - said Obnosov, when asked about the creation of missiles with elements of artificial intelligence.


    Earlier, Viktor Bondarev, who was then President of Air Force Commander, said that the Russian aircraft will have cruise missiles with elements of artificial intelligence, which will analyze the air and radar situation and make their own decision, at what height, what speed and in what direction they fly.

    Cruise line aviaraket


    The general director also said that the Tactical Missiles Corporation is planning by 2020 to create a high-precision cruise missile with a range of 1000 km and an accuracy of a few meters.

    According to him, it is impossible to cover all one missile target. "In some cases, inefficient cover a large range of" - explained the CEO of Tactical Missiles Corporation need to create an entire line of missiles.


    US high-precision cruise missile JASSM is designed to engage a well-protected fixed and relocatable targets in any weather and at any time of the day, with distances outside the range of enemy air defenses. Its range - 370 km (JASSM-ER 1000 km). The rocket is capable to deliver the warhead weight of 450 kg.

    hypersonic drones


    Hypersonic drones will appear in Russia in 2020, Obnosov said.

    "The second direction - when there is a long-term management of the flight at hypersonic speeds solve this problem even at low hypersonic velocities in the six or seven strides very difficult I think that in 2020 it is still is a serious development of hypersonic speeds in terms of unmanned aerial vehicles.. ", - he said.


    Portages also noted that "the work in this direction is, in engines is a serious work, Materials, Systems'. He also admitted that the complications too, because it is "serious development".

    Modernization of high-speed underwater missile "Flurry"

    weapons complex with a high-speed underwater missile "Squall-E" is designed to engage surface targets. The complex can be disposed on the surface ships, submarines or on stationary installations. The effective shooting distance is seven kilometers away, underwater launch depth is 30 meters, the weight of the missile - 210 kilograms, caliber - 534.4 mm, length - 8.2 meters, weight - 2700 kg.

    Unless you have another angle of the same video, for me it will be a fake. That's just against gravity and law physics !!

    Looks more like an rc Model of the su-35 with the sound of the Su-35 taken from another video.

    Russia to develop cruise missiles capable of striking targets at 1,000km range

    The missiles will be developed before 2020

    ZHUKOVSKY, July 20. /TASS/. Russia will develop a family of air-launched precision cruise missiles before 2020 that will be capable of striking targets at a distance of up to 1,000 kilometers, Tactical Missiles Corporation CEO Boris Obnosov said on Thursday.

    Russia to develop missiles based on artificial intelligence

    "Work is under way on a new family of items with a range of 200km, 400km, 600km and 1,000km. That is why, work in this area is being carried out. I believe that before 2020 we’ll surely roll out this family of items [missiles]," Obnosov said at the MAKS-2017 airshow, responding to a question about whether Russia was developing the analog of the US JASSM high precision long-range cruise missile.

    As the Tactical Missiles Corporation head said, one missile can’t engage all the targets. "In some cases, it is inefficient to cover a longer range," he said, explaining the need to develop a whole family of missiles.

    The US JASSM high precision cruise missile is intended to strike well-protected stationary and relocatable targets in any weather conditions and at any time of the day from distances off the enemy’s air defenses’ reach. It has a radius of operation of 370 km (JASSM-ER has an operational radius of up to 1,000 km). The missile is capable of delivering 450kg warheads.

    i saw this today

    Algeria expressed the intention to acquire at least a Su-32 squadron, which is an export version of the Su-34 front-line bomber, and is intended to replace Su-24MK bombers.

    Participants of the Algerian delegation were able to inspect the Su-34 and get information about its characteristics.

    The problem is, Russian developers keep saying "they expressed interest" with 0 follow up years later. Most notorious is the India deals. While India will purchase right then and there with US, it takes them decades to deal with Russia, even for a screw. Same goes for "UAE shows interest".

    I'm talking of hard numbers of actual sale contracts.

    "We assess that Mi-26 upgrade with PD-12V engine will improve the flight characteristics of the helicopter and, in particular, the altitude capability," it said.

    The corporation said "R&D to create PD-12V for Mi-26 helicopter on the basis of gas generator of the basic PD-14 engine is currently ongoing. It is created on a new technological basis with new materials and improved specific characteristics."

    PD-12V is designed to replace Ukrainian-made D-436 engines which Mi-26 helicopters are currently equipped with. The UDC earlier said the gas generator of PD-14 is used to develop 35-ton thrust engine for perspective Russian heavy airlifter Il-106. The Ilyushin Company is also considering installing the perspective PD-35 on the wide-body Il-96 aircraft to reduce the number of engines from four to two.

    The Russian Helicopters holding is exhibiting a new variant of the Mi-171Sh utility helicopter reconfigured for special operations and designated Mi-171Sh-VN. The helicopter was unveiled at the MAKS 2017 airshow at Zhukovsky outside Moscow.



    The Mi-171Sh-VN features combat effectiveness and survivability enhanced over the basic model. "The helicopter`s concept has been developed considering the combat experience including the one got in Syria," the CEO of Russian Helicopters Andrey Boginsky said. The helicopter will be promoted on the global market under Mi-171Sh designation.

    According to the official specifications, the Mi-171Sh-VN has a maximum take-off weight (MTOW) of 13,500 kg, a maximum payload of 4,000 kg, a ferry range of 1,065 km, a service ceiling of 6,000 m, a maximum speed of 280 km/h and a cruise speed of 260 km/h. The aircraft has a crew of three and can transport up to 37 dismounts. The Mi-171Sh-VN is powered by two engines with a power output of 1,900 hp each. It has also received composite main rotor blades and an X-type tail rotor.

    The Mi-171Sh-VN gunship has received a powerful armament suite. The aircraft exhibited at MAKS 2017 is armed with eight Ataka guided missiles, two UPK-23-250 gun pods with GSh-23 twin-barrel automatic cannons, two S-8 rocket launchers, two OFAB-250 aerial bombs and two upperwing-fixed 12.7 mm Kord heavy machineguns. The helicopter can be also fitted with two more Kords in door mounts. A pinpoint mount for a 7.62 mm PKM medium machinegun is installed in the rear part. The helicopter’s protection has been reinforced with applique spall liner made of kevlar fabric and anti-blast seats for dismounts.

    The Mi-171Sh-VN has received two chin-mounted hyrostabilised platforms for optoelectronic systems. The helicopter is equipped with a FLIR system, an infrared searchlight and a glass cockpit suitable for night vision googles.

    The Mi-171Sh-VN features pixel camouflage painting scheme that drastically reduces its visual signature.

    The Zhukovsky Central AeroHydrodynamic Institute (TsAGI, a member of the National Research Center “Institute named after N.E.Zhukovsky”) is demonstrating the results of its scientific and experimental research at the MAKS airshow. Among others concepts is a mock-up of its "Heavy Cargo Aircraft Lifting Body" (HCA-LB) unveiled in January 2017.
