XQ-58A Valkyrie

"The XQ-58A Valkyrie demonstrator, a long-range, high subsonic unmanned air vehicle completed its inaugural flight March 5, 2019 at Yuma Proving Grounds, Arizona. The Air Force Research Laboratory partnered with Kratos Unmanned Aerial Systems to develop the XQ-58A."

"Developed for runway independence, the aircraft behaved as expected and completed 76 minutes of flight time. The time to first flight took a little over 2.5 years from contract award. The XQ-58A has a total of five planned test flights in two phases with objectives that include evaluating system functionality, aerodynamic performance, and launch and recovery systems."

Light drugs. From otvaga:

   The website of the Federal Service for Intellectual Property contains information on an industrial design of an unmanned interceptor aircraft developed by the Almaz-Antey Aerospace Defense Concern JSC.

   The UAV is controlled by the operator through on-board television systems for detecting, targeting and aiming. Shooting at target is implemented on the basis of the smooth-bore carbine "Vepr 12 Molot" of 12 caliber with electric trigger and box magazine for 10 rounds. The device makes shots in the automatic mode, continuing to fly with a given course, and if the target is not hit, then UAV can continue to follow the object without further adjusting the course.

   The US Marine Corps (USMC) organized a tender for the development of disposable unmanned aerial vehicles for the delivery of various cargoes. According to the terms of the competition, drones should be suitable for dropping from C-130 Hercules transport aircraft, MV-22 Osprey converters and CH-53 Sea Stallion transport helicopters, and the cost of one vehicle should not exceed 11 thousand dollars.

/.../

   LG-2K plywood drones with a length of 3.9 meters and a wingspan of 8.3 meters. UAV is able to carry cargo weighing up to 725 kilograms in the inner compartment with a volume of 1.2 cubic meters.

   The mass of the device is 181 kilograms, in addition it can be equipped with a landing parachute, but then the capacity of the cargo compartment will decrease to 1 cubic meter. During the past tests, six LG-2K drones were launched from a helicopter. They were transported on an external sling, and near the point of destination they were disengaged and flew to the given coordinates. Six other vehicles were launched from the plane [Shorts SC-7 Skyvan].

   After launch, seven unmanned aerial vehicles were remotely controlled, the remaining five were planned to a given point in a fully autonomous mode. The total time that LG-2K drones spent in planning mode was 54 minutes. Tests of the devices were unanimously recognized as successful - drones confirmed the declared characteristics.

 

A fucking plywood drones, lel
