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 also ...- all this is already "yesterday" ... - too little functionality ...
    - Go crazy ... - Already since 2011 they have been developing and will not develop it at all ... - here the "fifth generation" is right to start releasing ...
    - Yes, the Chinese would have stolen all the “data” a long time ago and in a year would have already launched into production some kind of “Dragon soaring in the sun” ...
    - And again one thing saddens ... - again Tatarstan; Kazan again ...- Tatarstan ...- this is the “technological park” of all of Russia, or what ??? - There are no other cities, factories, design bureaus in Russia ... or what ???

      - Yes, the fact of the matter is that carrying "two cast irons" ...
      - We need a whole line of UAVs ...: ...- scouts; bombers and missile carriers; spotters to carry out operational tasks (adjustment of strikes at a certain site) and spotters performing real-time mode and maintaining communication with satellites; as well as UAVs, which intercept electronic warfare of electronic warfare and neutralize and “deceive” the guidance of enemy strikes; as well as simulating striking, etc. etc ...- And all these UAVs of "different weight", different purposes, different designs, different equipment, different functionalities ... - And this is all in a single whole system; in a program, in 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 ...

        Do not carry nonsense, if not in the know.

          - Yes, you don’t bring rubbish yourself ... - Anyway ...- the whole base is in full view ... - And next to it is a kind of "Golan Heights", from where our base can be viewed - even along, even across ...
          - The enemies pulled several dozen rusty 100 mm used mortars (which are not a pity to throw) fired several shots (yes, at least one) and hit the road ... - yes, even from old crappy artillery (which is also not a pity to throw) you can also fire ... - And the "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 "in the know" ... - how will you defend 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.
