Our "Argument": Russia is working on a new attack UAV


Following the creation of the promising heavy UAV Okhotnik, with which Loyal Wingman from the Australian division of Boeing is trying to compete, our country has announced the following project. We are talking about the AP-10 "Argument" drone being developed on the basis of a manned combat training vehicle.


It is worth noting that the aforementioned project fits very well into the Russian approach to understanding the goals and objectives of unmanned aircraft. We already have a strike version of the lightweight drone "Pacing" and a reconnaissance and strike drone "Altius".

The combat radius of the "pacer" is 300 km. The set includes 3 UAVs and a mobile ground control center. In turn, "Altius" is controlled via satellites, has an autonomy of up to 48 hours, and is also capable of carrying high-precision samples of aviation weapons and hitting targets at a distance of 10 thousand km.

UAV AP-10 "Argument", created on the basis of the training-combat manned vehicle SR-10, is designed to perform operations just between the zones of the aforementioned vehicles. Most of the information about the project is classified. However, it is known that the new drone will be able to operate within a radius of 300 to 800 km and will be faster than the Altius. Those. the apparatus is fully consistent with the level of the tasks of the front.

In addition, mention is made of the possibility of placing X-38 missiles in the in-fuselage compartment of the new UAV, which will allow Argument to deliver quick and accurate strikes. The possibility of the drone to work in conjunction with manned aircraft is also not excluded.

    To believe in our unmanned aircraft, you need to make a demonstration performance, and it is better to flog the bad barmaley in Syria. Then they won't talk about cartoons. In the meantime, I only learn about our UAVs from the "cartoons".

    Everyone is working on new UAVs.
    We must say when they appear! And then from the Kalashnikov about 2 years ago they presented and in real life zero

    When they say we already have, a counter question arises: are there prototypes or are there many in service ???? Ato as with the main tanks - the main tank of the Armata - after that, besides the cackle does not arise - the main one in the troops is 72 different variations and 80s .... the rest of the experimental parties.

    Again, sweet dreams about the upcoming swarm of Russian drones. And in real life, as usual - zero! tongue

    I will clarify. On March 2, 2021, the world's first unmanned fighter jet, Loyal Wingman, successfully took to the skies.

    I like Russia in terms of Blah, blah. Well, you just have to think about it and it is already there and this is already the best thing.
    All the same, "gop" must be spoken after "jumping over".
    Five years ago, the share of Russia in the world economy was 2%. Now it is 1,7%. All the smaller and smaller, and the chatter more and more.
