Colonel Khodarenok: "Bayraktar" and "Pacer" are the two main opponents of the Russian NWO

During the Russian special operation on Ukrainian territory, unmanned aircraft took an important place on the battlefield. The two main opponents on the front line of the advancing SVO and, accordingly, rivals in the arms market were the Turkish Bayraktar TB2 UAV, which the Armed Forces of Ukraine are equipped with, and its Russian counterpart Orion, known in the RF Armed Forces as "Pacer". On August 2, a military observer, reserve colonel Mikhail Khodarenok informed the public about this on his Telegram channel.

Although strike UAVs were created at about the same time, they represent completely different models of the military-industrial complex. "Bayraktar" before the start of the NMD "lit up" in Nagorno-Karabakh and Syria, and for "Pacer" Ukraine became the second battlefield after Syria

- the expert noted.

Khodarenok drew attention to the visual differences of the mentioned UAVs. Firstly, they differ in tail plumage: the heavier Pacer (maximum weight over 1 ton) is equipped with a V-shaped tail for better maneuverability, and Bayraktar (maximum weight 650 kg) received an inverted V tail, which simultaneously serves as a rudder direction and height.

Secondly, the Pacer has a normal aerodynamic layout, but the fuselage has a large elongation and an asymmetric cross section. Closer to the middle of the fuselage is a "fin" with electronic equipment inside. At "Bayraktar" the fuselage has the form of an integral two-beam low-wing, inside the central part of which all electronic units are hidden.

But this is all, so to speak, "cosmetics", differences technical drone parts are much more interesting

- the expert summed up, inviting readers to independently study the infographics he published on this issue.

Note that both drones are equipped with internal combustion engines designed and manufactured by the Austrian company BRP-Rotax GmbH & Co KG, which belongs to the Canadian company Bombardier Recreational Products. "Pacer" uses a Rotax 914 with a power of 86 kW or 115 hp. s., and "Bayraktar" - Rotax 912 with a pusher-type propeller with a capacity of 100 liters. s., which run on motor gasoline with an octane rating of at least 95. At the same time, Agat, in cooperation with CIAM, is developing the Russian APD-110/120 engine to replace a foreign power unit, and the Turks are trying to replace a standing engine that previously fell under sanctions , its domestic development and Ukrainian products.

    A question for filling: how many Bayraktars have been issued and used, and how many Pacers, at least in the NWO ... How many times is the difference? Why, we have Armata, Coalition, S-57 ... and other excellent examples, but in units, that's the problem ...

    "Pacer" then "opponent of NWO", because they practically do not make it !!!)) How many pieces did they do ?? And how much money was spent?! Dach-houses built and beautifully-expensive cars bought ?? A lot of..! And the Army is practically robbed, disarmed .. All these people can be identified - the heads of research institutes, design bureaus, "teams of engineers", officials who received assignments from the "premier and the government" .. After all, they are all alive and well, they eat, rest, grow rich!. .. That's where the expanse is for the special services! Hundreds, thousands .. for the construction of roads, felling wood and against the wall too .. Where and when is SMERSH, when is order and responsibility ?! Looks like.. never!

      No need to hysteria. The defense budget, so far, is being executed without violations.

    It's all over with Western engines. The Russian engine is crude, unreliable, heavy. Passes through the category as low-budget, which means suspicious, dubious and not exciting for the Ministry of Defense.

    They are basically different devices.
    The pacer is exclusively a scout. Yes, it seems like there are isolated weapons experiments, but they are precisely that single and, apparently, not that successful.
    Baikatar - reconnaissance and strike.

    In other words, if a pacer sees a fuel truck driving far beyond the front line, he simply flies further. Artillery will not finish firing, it is a pity to spend a caliber, and sending an attack aircraft is dangerous (and, again, expensive).

    Baykatar in a similar situation will make a torch out of a fuel truck and either return for ammunition or fly further to reconnoiter.

    So sorry, of course, but which of this pair is better is more than obvious.
