Bombs hung on Altair


Russian reconnaissance and strike drones with long duration flights Altair (R&D Altius-M) began to be tested with weapons. This was announced during a visit to the Kazan Aircraft Plant by the Deputy Head of the Russian Ministry of Defense, Colonel General Alexei Krivoruchko.


It should be noted that the aforementioned drone was first lit up with ammunition. Judging by the video, while these are training inert bombs. But their visual characteristics correspond to high-explosive FAB-250 high-explosive bombs weighing 250-268 kg (some users on the Web considered overall similarities with the heavier FAB-500). This proved that the drone, which was developed for the Russian Armed Forces since 2011, can perform not only reconnaissance, but also shock functions.


The Russian military is looking forward to receiving this heavy drone. It has a takeoff weight of up to 5 tons. Its carrying capacity is about 1 ton. Flight duration up to 48 hours. Speed ​​- 150-250 km / h. It can rise to a height of up to 12 thousand meters. Flight range - 10 thousand km.

From the video shown, we can conclude that work on the drone is already at the final stage and it will soon appear in the troops. The drone will be able to carry 4 FAB-250 or 2 FAB-500, which is very good.

    - Well, at least something ... - although too ... - all this is already "yesterday" ... - too little functional ...
    - It's crazy ... - since 2011 they have been developing and will not develop in any way ... - then the "fifth generation" is just right to start producing ...
    - Yes, the Chinese would have stolen all the "data" long ago and in a year they would have launched their own "Dragon soaring in the sun" into production ...
    - And again one thing saddens ... - Tatarstan again; Kazan again ... - Tatarstan ... is the "technological park" of the whole of Russia, or what ??? - There are no other cities, factories, design bureaus in Russia ... or what ???

      - Yes, the fact of the matter is that to carry "two chugunin" ...
      - We need a whole line of UAVs ...: ... - scouts; bombers and missile carriers; spotters, to perform operational tasks (adjusting the delivery of strikes in a certain area) and spotters, performing real-time mode and maintaining communication with satellites; as well as unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs), which put electronic jamming of the electronic warfare and neutralize and "deceive" the guidance of enemy strikes; as well as imitating striking, etc. and so on ... - And all these UAVs of "different weights", different purposes, different designs, different equipment, different functionalities ... - And this is all in a single whole system; in the program, in the software that coordinates all these actions ...
      - But Russia doesn’t have anything ... - In Syria, Russia deals with air strikes like ... like during the Second World War .., and there are no air defense systems that oppose Russian aviation ... - The Khmeimim base ... is essentially vulnerable to all sides ...
      - Okay, I won’t be here ... here I’ll breed all this bodyagi ...- it’s clear and so ...

          - Don't talk nonsense yourself ... - And in general ... - the whole base is in full view ... - And next to it is a kind of "Golan Heights", from where you can view our base - even along, at least across ...
          - The enemies dragged a few dozen rusty 100 mm used mortars (which are not a pity to throw) fired several shots (yes at least one at a time) and hit the road ... ... - And "civilians" from the hills will observe through binoculars ... - how exactly the blow was struck ...
          - Actually, that was already ...
          - And besides rusty used mortars, there are more modern weapons that can be hit ... - Damn, our planes are in the open; all storage facilities for fuels and lubricants and aviation fuel are known ... - Tankers ride on take-off ... like ... like in Vnukovo or Sheremetyevo ... in Moscow ... all the inhabitants of the hills are in sight ...
          - Well, tell Mr. Astronaut (San Sanych) ... - since you are "aware" ... - how will you protect our base ...

            gorenina 91, do not carry anything inappropriate, if you don’t understand, especially about rusty pipes, mortars and how to get out ..., airplanes have long been under awnings, etc ... Observe decency, do not poke everyone unfamiliar, if you speak out, more facts, not emotions, this is not a ladies' playground. Improve yourself, take a look - and we will hear useful things from you ...

    ... which has been developed for the Russian Armed Forces since 2011.

    It seems like sabotage. At best, extorting money. From the Chinese to buy - probably will be cheaper.
