 The Russian army will be awarded the all-round UAV: capable of self attack and partner with the Soviet -57


The higher heavy attack UAV can bypass the enemys air defense system under unmanned command, search for the most important targets (headquarters, communication hub, missile launcher, etc.) by itself and carry out attack, then retreat all over and return to the base. Experts believe that the new function will make higher into an all-around weapon.

Military industry sources told the news that the R & D of the higher upgraded version of heavy reconnaissance attack UAV has begun. It will be equipped with artificial intelligence components that can be remotely controlled by su-57 fighters. The required new equipment will be installed on the UAV by the end of the year, and then undergo technical tests.

The improved higher can attack independently. After obtaining the target coordinates, the airborne electronic equipment can select the optimal flight attack route and projectile point according to the corresponding algorithm. At the same time, it can also take into account the real-time location information of enemy air defense system obtained from the headquarters. In case of conflict with the enemy with strong air defense system, the performance of UAV will greatly reduce its own loss.

After completing the task, higher can pick out the safest route for itself and automatically return to the patrol area.

At present, in all flight stages, the UAV can not be separated from the control of the ground personnel. Due to the long flight time, the introduction of artificial intelligence is to reduce the burden for the operator, especially for the UAV that can fly continuously for more than 24 hours at the operation level of higher.

Higher can also be used with the carrier. Last September, Russias Ministry of defense showed a picture of the 5th generation fighter su-57 and the Hunter attack UAV fighting together. Today, higher has the same opportunity. The pilot can use the instrument to find the target and transmit the relevant coordinates to the UAV through the encrypted channel. Since then, higher can independently perform combat tasks without operator intervention.

Previously, the news reported that higher would be equipped with high-precision heavy-duty glider bomb thunder. The latter is more powerful than the 500kg conventional explosive shell and can accurately destroy targets within 120km.

The higher level after the thunder will add to the strength of the tiger, penetrate into the enemys rear and attack the most important targets. The other sides command post, radar, anti missile and air defense systems, and land-based cruise missile launchers are all doomed.

Vadim kokulin, a professor at the Russian Academy of Military Sciences, told the herald that drones of higher level will not be used to fight terrorists, but will fight against the armies of big powers.

Russia once lagged behind in the development and actual use of attack drones, he said. Now, in fact, we have given up the tactical link and started to build a strategic system. This UAV is not inferior to similar products of the United States, Britain and China, including the xq-58 Wushen UAV developed in the United States. Generally speaking, ammunition, intelligence and reconnaissance equipment, radio electronic warfare tools will be installed on one aircraft, making the latter quite expensive, and the pilot needs one person to operate all the above devices. In the event of an accident to the plane, the loss would be enormous. The latest idea is to partner ordinary aircraft with a number of drones, which can share some tasks. And they can be closer to the enemy, see better, and even stand up and act as a cover when necessary. In this case, the pilot can survive and the aircraft can be saved.
