Pirates have two types of aircraft with fixed wing and rotor. Both can deliver goods, launch attacks, conduct reconnaissance and electronic countermeasures. Now, this Tactical UAV is in the final stage of testing. It weighs about 200 kilograms, and the fixed wing version uses propelled propeller. The aircraft was launched from the special container loaded by Kama motor and equipped with a charge missile system and a multi-target rocket with a range of 6 kilometers. The rotary version pirates use coaxial propellers to take off and land in the field without landing facilities. Airborne weapons are guided missiles and non guided missiles. The pirate UAVs can be used in the army, navy and special forces. The Russian army plans to equip hundreds of such aircraft before 2025. The media pointed out that the pirate function is similar to the US RQ-7A shadow 200 UAV. But compared with American UAVs, Russian UAVs are dominant in a series of parameters such as self-support (12 hours to 8 hours), actual voyage (200 km to 125 km) and application range (RQ-7A does not equip attack weapons). In 2017, Russias new generation of electronic equipment for UAVs was put into mass production. Skoko J, deputy general manager of joint instrument manufacturing company, said in February 2016 that the designer developed a technology to transmit large amounts of data remotely. Experts pointed out that Pirates installed on the ground exchange data airborne equipment, real-time broadband communication can be carried out. This allows the command post and every combat unit to see reconnaissance intelligence of UAVs, making it easier to make decisions more quickly. Edward Bagdasara, a member of the UAV user and developer Association, said: Pirates were first developed as army reconnaissance aircraft. It has installed photoelectric systems and photographic equipment for day and night reconnaissance. At the same time, the pirate has a payload of about 40 kilograms and can carry several 3 to 4 kilograms of heavy missiles. Baghdad saran stressed: unofficial sources said the drone was tested in Syria. Perhaps the military was satisfied with its performance, so it decided to show it in parade. This is another major progress of Chinas development of UAVs. Data picture: Russian UAV. The source of this article: Reference News Editor: ye Zhi FA _NBJS6073 Data picture: Russian UAV.
