    Ok, advanced questions then! Smile

    I don't know, the table seems to indicate either altitude / endurance or altitude / combat capability, that one you mention indeed looks like a high flying, missile like platform. There are some similar drone sin China and US.

    Just looking at its shape I would say a UAV version of the Kh-32 perhaps... certainly high speed oriented unlike the wide thin glider winged UAVS below it.

    the advantage of the Kh-32 as a drone is the ability to operate above air defences... it is designed to fly at mach 5 at 40km altitude so would be tough to deal with for most air defence systems even today.

    The wings look bigger than the Kh-32 but otherwise similar shape.

    Russia has fully substituted the jointly produced with Motor-Sich engine used in the Yak-130 and planned for use in the Grom UAV.
    The new Russian engine allows the range of the Grom to increase to 3500 km from 2000 km and its payload to increase by 25%.

    Nice... I wonder if they would consider fitting the version with afterburner on to the Yak-130. That was proposed for a single seater light attack/fighter version of the aircraft to boost acceleration and general performance and payload.

    This will also be good for the SR-10 which also uses the same engine...

    ]Packing weapons: the Ministry of Defense in search of an anti-submarine drone

    Heavy drones will work together to detect and hit submarines


    The Ministry of Defense is working on a project to create a special unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) and a control system for it to combat submarines. For this task, existing unmanned systems can be adapted or new ones developed. It is planned that such drones will be able to operate in a "flock" using elements of artificial intelligence. To accommodate the necessary equipment and weapons will require a model with a large payload, such as the C-70 Okhotnik, experts say.

    Single network
    To combat submarines, the Ministry of Defense is preparing a new concept. For this task, in the future, it is planned to use heavy drones equipped with submarine detection equipment and anti-submarine weapons. Several flying "hunters" united in a single network will be able to search for the enemy at the same time. Potential platforms for the creation of such an apparatus are now being studied, sources in the defense department told Izvestia.

    Hunter drones can be launched from ground airfields or ships. They are planned to be controlled from both ship and air command posts, with the active use of automation capabilities and elements of artificial intelligence. UAVs will be able to either independently hit targets, or direct them to the strikes of anti-submarine weapons from other carriers.

    UAVs in Russian Armed Forces: News #2 - Page 15 Empty Syria tested a unique method of targeting attack drones

    Post  lyle6 Sun Apr 04, 2021 7:05 pm

    MOSCOW, April 4 - RIA Novosti. Syria has tested a unique technology for guiding the latest Inokhodets tactical attack drones to terrorist targets using the upgraded Strelets-M wearable reconnaissance, control and communication system (KRUS), and as a result has achieved high efficiency and accuracy in hitting targets in real time, a source in the Russian defense-industrial complex told RIA Novosti.
    The source did not specify when the tests were conducted, but noted that "the Inokhodets drones were striking targets, including those newly detected by the Strelets-M CRUS, whose coordinate information was sent by ground unit fighters via communication channels to the control point of the drones and to the higher command in real time."

    According to the source, ground reconnaissance units use "Strelets" system devices to detect a target, display it on an electronic map on a tablet with parameters and exact coordinates. It could be a tank, an accumulation of armored or manpower of the enemy, an artillery position, a command post and so on. Information about the target is transmitted via a secure communication channel to relevant control nodes, which assign the task of destroying the object to the nearest free attacking UAV.

    The source said that the CRUS does not yet allow direct control of combat drones, this is handled by the operator. "However, in the future, if a sufficient level of automation of domestic UAVs is achieved, it is possible that the Sagittarius CRUS or its versions will allow ground forces to provide targeting for attack drones directly," he explained.
    In 2017, the General Staff reported that the Russian military in the course of the anti-terrorist operation in Syria managed to achieve the accuracy of "one target - one bomb." According to Chief of the General Staff Valery Gerasimov, a reconnaissance and strike circuit consisting of the "Strelets" reconnaissance, control and communication complex and an Su-24M bomber were actively used in the near-fire zone.

    Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu noted that Strelets makes it possible to hit targets in near real time, 8 to 12 minutes after their detection.
    The Inokhodets medium-altitude, long-endurance attack drone, also known as Orion, was developed by Kronshtadt at the request of the Defense Ministry. The drone can stay in the air for up to a day. Its maximum take-off weight is 1100 kg and combat load is up to 250 kg. "Orion can use small guided missiles and guided bombs against ground targets.
    In particular, one Orion flew 38 sorties in Syria, including 17 strikes on terrorist targets.

    MOSCOW, 4 APR-RIA Novosti. InSyria tested unique technology guidance newest tactical strike drones "Pacer" on terrorist targets with upgraded wearable complex intelligence, control and communications (CRUZ), "Sagittarius-M", as a result managed to achieve high levels of efficiency and accuracy targets in real time, reported RIA Novosti a source in the Russian defence industrial complex.

    The interlocutor of the Agency did not specify when the tests were conducted, but noted that "Pacer drones also struck targets that were newly detected using the Strelets-M cruise missile SYSTEM, information about the coordinates of which was sent by ground units via communication channels to the drone control center and higher command in real time."

    According to the source, ground scouts use the devices of the Sagittarius system to detect the target, display it against the background of an electronic map on a tablet with parameters and exact coordinates. This can be a tank, a cluster of armored vehicles or enemy personnel, an artillery position, a command post, and so on. Information about the target is transmitted via a secure communication channel to relevant control nodes, which assign the task of destroying the object to the nearest free-strike UAV.

    "The option was also implemented with transmitting the exact coordinates of targets directly to the ground control point of attack UAVs with automatic display of the target on the electronic map of the UAV operator's area," the source added.

    The source said that CRUZ does not yet allow you to directly control combat drones, the operator is engaged in this. "However, in the future, when a sufficient level of automation of domestic UAVs is achieved, it is possible that the Strelets cruise missile SYSTEM or its versions will allow ground forces to provide target designation for attack drones directly, "he explained.
    In 2017, the General staff reported that the Russian military during the anti-terrorist operation in Syria managed to achieve the accuracy of "one target - one bomb". According to the chief of the General staff Valery Gerasimov, a reconnaissance and strike circuit was actively used in the near-range zone of fire damage as part of the Strelets reconnaissance, control and communications complex and the su-24M bomber.

    As noted by the Minister of defenseSergei Shoigu, "Sagittarius" allows you to hit targets almost in real time, 8-12 minutes after their detection.
    The medium-altitude long-duration strike drone Pacer, also known as Orion, was developed by the company "Kronstadt" commissioned by the Ministry of defense. The device can stay in the air for up to a day. Its maximum take-off weight is 1,100 kilograms, and its combat load is up to 250 kilograms. Orion is capable of using small-sized guided missiles and guided aerial bombs against ground targets.

    In particular, one of the "Orions" made 38 sorties in Syria, including 17 with strikes on terrorist targets.

    So the roles have been reversed, instead of UAV's being used to detect targets for manned gunners, you have humans detecting targets for unmanned weapon systems. To put it blunt: HUMINT is being used by UCAV's to turn murder-hobos in to hummus. Wink Twisted Evil

    The source spoke about the work on a single set of weapons for UAVs

    MOSCOW, 14 Apr-RIA Novosti. A universal complex of guided and unguided weapons is being developed in the Russian Federation for several types of attack unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs), including Forpost drones, a source in the military-industrial complex told RIA Novosti.
    "Work continues on a single set of weapons for UAVs of different classes. The complex will include unguided, corrected and guided aerial bombs with a caliber of up to 100 kilograms, as well as air – to-surface guided missiles. A single set of weapons is planned to be used on Pacer drones (also known as Orion), Altius, Forpost, as well as on new UAVs that will be created in similar tactical and medium - altitude classes, "the source said.
    He noted that several companies participate in the program. "Part of the range of ammunition was worked out with UAVs, including in Syria during airstrikes on terrorist targets, " the source added.
    The source also said that the Pacer attack vehicle is now capable of carrying up to six adjustable 20-kilogram mini - bombs or three 50-kilogram mini-bombs from the new complex on three suspension units, and two such bombs on Outpost.
    "The Altius drone will receive the same set of weapons, only it will be able to carry many times more ammunition. In the future, Altius and Pacer will be able to use adjustable and controlled aerial bombs of up to 100 kilograms, which are also being developed as part of a universal weapons complex," he added.

    Russia develops world’s first light drone with hybrid engine


    The hybrid powerplant boosts the drone’s flight duration

    MOSCOW, April 15. /TASS/. Russia’s ZALA Aero (part of the Kalashnikov Group within the state tech corporation Rostec) has developed the world’s first light unmanned aircraft ZALA 421-16E5G outfitted with a hybrid powerplant combining an electric motor and an internal combustion engine, ZALA Aero Special Projects Head Nikita Khamitov told TASS during the drone’s presentation on Thursday.

    "We have been the first in the world to combine an internal combustion engine and an electric motor in this class of drones. The company has made a sequential hybrid: during the flight the internal combustion engine is not the main driving force but feeds the generator and the buffer battery. This, in turn, supplies power to all onboard systems and assemblies, including the electric motor," Khamitov said.

    The hybrid powerplant boosts the drone’s flight duration compared to similar unmanned aerial vehicles, he said.

    "Thanks to this scheme, we have achieved a flight time of over 16 hours and have provided a possibility to operate over an object of interest in a completely silent mode," Khamitov noted.

    The drone’s serial production has already begun, he said. "A customer is already available. The serial production has already been launched," he added.

    The ZALA Aero production capacities allow producing up to 300 various drones a year, he added.

    The ZALA 421-16E5G is the world’s first unmanned aircraft without an airfield base outfitted with a hybrid powerplant of an electric motor and an internal combustion engine. The drone is positioned as an unmanned reconnaissance aircraft.

    "The payload allows using target acquisition, communications relay and 2G, 3G and 4G mobile network monitoring systems. It can conduct radio-technical reconnaissance in the area and identify mobile phones and their location and also relay communications to several dozen kilometers," Khamitov added.

    Russian medium-altitude attack drones will receive a single universal weapon system
    Yesterday, 06: 51
    31
    Russian attack drones will receive a universal weapon system, work on which is ongoing. It is reported by "RIA News" with reference to a source in the DIC.

    A unified armament complex is being created for the Pioneer (Orion), Altius and Forpost drones, as well as promising medium-altitude strike drones, which are still being worked on. The Okhotnik strike UAV and the Thunder, which is at the design stage, will receive weapons similar to manned fighters, including those created specifically for the Su-57.

    Work continues on a unified armament system for UAVs of different classes. The complex will include unguided, corrected and guided aerial bombs up to 100 kilograms in caliber, as well as guided air-to-surface missiles
    - said the source.

    It is clarified that the complex is being created by several Russian companies at once, part of the armament for the UAV has already been developed, it has been successfully tested, including in Syria when striking terrorist positions.

    Earlier it was reported that the following ammunition has already been created for the Orion UAV: aviation small-sized guided missile Kh-50, corrected small-sized aerial bomb KAB-20, guided gliding aerial bomb UPAB-50 with a warhead MLRS "Grad", corrected small-sized aerial bomb KAB-50 with a warhead MLRS "Grad", unguided aerial bomb FAB- 50 with a warhead MLRS "Grad".

    Most likely, these ammunition can also be used with the Altius and Outpost UAVs.

    Russian medium-altitude attack drones will receive a single universal weapon system

    Work continues on a unified armament system for UAVs of different classes.

    Nice, so two different things.

    Essentially the first bit is a standard ground attack avionics suite to allow drones to attack ground targets with guided and unguided bombs and rockets... sort of a standard Gefest & T system for medium altitude drones.

    The second bit is a range of standard weapons for drones to carry and used sized for their purposes...

    Nice angle of Grom

    Nice... didn't realise it was that big.
