In addition, some military drones, such as the turkish baird aktash tb2, have already demonstrated their effectiveness in real combat conditions. At the moment, the army of aerial combat robots is not only strengthened but also constantly modernized. The day is not far off when drones, with artificial intelligence will become the main means of air warfare and possibly completely replace the usual manned fighter jets, reconnaissance aircraft flying tankers and bombers. It is still difficult to determine which combat drone is the best in the world. Today, the fact is that almost nothing is known about many developments, for example, according to chinese engineers, some projects of the peoples republic of china should be just perfect, but how will they behave in trials and in battle remains a mystery? What kind of drones are considered? The most combat ready find out in our video we present to your attention a rating of the best military drones of our time. Sukhoi s70 ohutnik b. Our video begins with a russian development, the s70, which is better known as the ochotnik. This russian drone made its first flight in august 2019. The drone under the control of the operator made several overflights of the airfield at an altitude of about 1 968 feet and made a successful landing. The first flight of the ahutnik lasted exactly 20 minutes. The russian attack drone ohutnik is made according to the flying wing scheme using special materials and coatings that make it practically invisible to radar detection equipment.

The drone is equipped with equipment for optical electronic radio, technical and other types of reconnaissance. Already on september 27, 2019. The russian ministry of defense announced that a new drone performed a successful joint flight with a fifth generation su 57 manned fighter jet during this flight. The drone worked out interaction with a leader aircraft. According to some information, the russian attack drone ohutnik may be armed with a supersonic anti radar air to ground missile x 58. In addition, as experts believe, it is quite possible to use four modified supersonic, kh 74m2 missiles and eight kab 250 corrected aerial bombs as weapons for an unmanned aerial vehicle. As for artificial intelligence and autonomy, the russian okutnik is a prototype of the sixth generation fighter jet, but it has not received the function of deciding on the use of weapons which still remains with a person. Predator c, our video is continued by an american drone. This is the gaas avenger or predator c. The predator c, like the predator v variant, is designed to carry about one ton of payload. If stealth is not required for the mission, then the weapon can also be placed on the external suspension of the wing and fuselage. If necessary, additional fuel tanks can be installed in the internal cargo hold in this configuration. The machine gets an additional two hours of flight. The vertical v tail of the predator seed deflects radar radiation and reduces the infrared signature of the engine exhaust the power plant is a pratt and whitney canada pw545b engine, which provides a maximum flight speed of at least 460 miles per hour.

In addition, the drones engine has an s, shaped air intake which helps cooling and reduces the drones, infrared visibility, the wing sweep of the predator c reaches 17 degrees, and the edges of the empanadas are almost parallel. It should be noted that such contours are used on classic stealth projects of american fighter jet bombers. In addition to all that has been said, the wing of this american drone is capable of folding, which is a key condition for storage and hangers, or on a limited sized deck of an aircraft carrier. Mq 9 reaper, the mq 9 reaper, is based on the successful mq 1 predator multi purpose: unmanned aerial vehicle from general atomic aeronautical systems inc. The first flight of the prototype took place in february 2001. The mq 9 reaper drone is an enlarged version of the rq mq1 predator. The main difference is the more traditional v tail. The reaper equipment is basically identical to the mq 1 equipment and consists of a wide range infrared optical electronic sighting system and a radar. This american drone can be used as a multi purpose, combat complex armed with agm 114c k, hellfire, atgm and other guided weapons. It should be noted that, as such, combat tests of this drone were not carried out. Initially, the new drone demonstrated performance that far exceeded. That of its predecessor, the mq 9 reaper, is capable of staying at an altitude of 44 947 feet for up to 30 hours.

According to the us air force classification, this drone belongs to the category of hunter killer, an aircraft capable of tracking down a target and destroying it. The reaper can carry up to 14 hellfire air to ground missiles, while the now widely used predator unmanned aircraft is armed with only two such missiles when fully loaded. This unmanned vehicle is capable of being continuously airborne for 14 hours and has a maximum speed of 298 miles per hour. In august 2008, the united states air force completed the rearmament of the 174th fighter air regiment of the national guard from f 16 fighter jets to mq 9 reaper. The main advantages over the replaced manned fighter jets are lower cost of acquisition and operation longer. Flight duration and safety of the pilot operator heron one. It is a medium altitude, unmanned aerial vehicle with a long flight duration. The drone is designed for reconnaissance and surveillance, as well as performing other tasks during long flights, which can reach up to 45 hours in time. At altitudes up to 35 104 feet, perrin is one of the oldest unmanned aerial vehicles. Its first flight took place back in october 1994.. The onboard equipment of the unmanned aerial vehicle includes a navigation system with a satellite navigation system signal receiver, thanks to which the drone is able to fly autonomously for a sufficiently long time. In this mode it can perform almost the entire flight. There is also a semi automatic mode with operator intervention at certain stages of the mission.

The israeli drone has the ability to perform takeoff and landing in automatic mode which, along with the 24 7 nature of its use, makes it a truly highly effective and formidable aircraft platform for the enemy. Moreover, having lost contact with the ground command post, the drone is able to autonomously return to its base. Heron can carry a wide range of useful equipment, optoelectronic and infrared systems, radio and electronic reconnaissance stations. A small radar station and the light unmanned aerial vehicles can, with high efficiency, solve the tasks of adjusting artillery fire and reconnaissance of enemy targets. At the moment, various heron modifications are in service with the armies of australia, brazil, canada, ecuador, germany, india, turkey, the united states and, of course, israel itself. Now lets talk a little about the unmanned aerial vehicle taranis and about the chinese ch 5 rainbow five. The taranis is a fifth generation british scout stormtrooper named after the celtic god of thunder. Until recently, the details of its development were kept under wraps. The only things known for certain are the mass three tons, the length 36 feet, the wingspan 32 feet and the fact that the drone is equipped with stealth technology, which makes the machine practically invisible to the enemys air defense. Maximum speed supersonic designed for intercontinental flights ch5 rainbow 5, is a new medium altitude reconnaissance and strike drone from china. The rainbow 5 can carry up to 16 air to ground missiles or other precision guided munitions with a total weight of up to 1984 pounds.

The wingspan is 68 feet. The maximum speed is 248 miles per hour without refueling it will stay in the air for 60 hours. Vairaktash tv2 the best in our opinion, and probably the most famous of all modern strike drones is the turkish bhairakash tb2. The length of this machine is 21 feet. The wingspan is ‘ feet. The range is 93 miles. The maximum takeoff weight is 1433 pounds. The maximum payload mass is 121 pounds. The bydoctash tb2 reconnaissance and strike unmanned aerial vehicle created by the turkish company by carmakina is already in service with several countries. It is a modification of the baidoctas block b and belongs to the class of tactical medium altitude, unmanned aerial vehicles with a long flight duration. The drone has more advanced software and control systems than, for example, the israeli heron one birdoktash complex, includes six drones. Two ground control stations, power supplies and maintenance kits. The crew includes a crew commander, a pilot operator and a weapons operator. The turkish badakhtash tv2 is built using modern, composite materials and is equipped with a rotax 912 internal combustion engine with a capacity of 100 horsepower. The maximum flight speed of the drone is 155 miles per hour. The cruising speed is 80 miles per hour. The practical height to which the machine can climb is 23 950 feet. In addition, the drone equipment allows the drone to perform fully automatic takeoff and landing. The turkish unmanned aerial vehicle is equipped with a variety of video cameras and surveillance systems, which allows it to be used for reconnaissance purposes in terms of weapons.

The bydoctash tb2 can carry two anti tank guided missiles and a laser guided rocket sun m, a m l or mamc gliding ammunition. Talking about this drone, it is necessary to note the good characteristics of this machine during one of the test flights in june and august 2014, the turkish drone spent 24 hours 34 minutes at an altitude of 26 246 feet thats all for today. We hope you enjoyed the video which unmanned aerial vehicle did you like the most and which do you think is the most suitable for use in the air force. Leave your answers in the comments.
