The Air Force and Air Defence Training Ground Hosted a Demonstration of the Combat Capabilities of Domestically Produced Prototypes of Strike UASs

On 11 August 2021, a demonstration of strike capabilities of domestically produced prototypes of unmanned aircraft systems was held at the 174th Air Force and Air Defence training ground for senior personnel of the State Secretary of the Security Council of Belarus, Ministry of Defence and Belarusian State Authority for Military Industry (SAMI).

The parties got acquainted with the target firing capability of the reconnaissance and strike UAS Chekan jointly with the Kamikaze type aircraft, developed at 558 Aircraft Repair Plant JSC (558 ARP), and two samples of the Quadro-1400 and Soaring tube multi-rotor UASs (quadcopter) (в МАКС давали как UAV), created at Display Design Office JSC. In the course of the UASs employment the aircraft were equipped with the RPG-26 grenade launchers and PTAB-2.5 small aerial bombs.

At the launching site, specialists of the developing organisations carried out pre-flight preparation of the UAVs and equipped them with combat units and armament. Flight tasks were also developed that provided for the manoeuvring of the drones at certain altitudes and their flight routes. For guided UASs, depending on their purpose, commanders determined the altitudes at which they would approach the target and the dive angles, fuzing altitudes. The coordinates of targets for them were set by the operators already in the course of the flight.

The flight missions were performed in accordance with the set parameters. The ground targets were hit.

The results of the demonstration will be used in making a decision on the acceptance of the products for the armed forces.

The SAMI determined the creation of domestic strike UASs and high-precision small-size air-defence systems as the priority in the development of this type of weapon in the nearest future. The most rational and efficient is the production of tactical strike UASs based on the use of the potential created in our country and the available know-how.
