    Default First Look At MiG Skat UCAV

    First Look At MiG Skat UCAV

    MiG's Skat unmanned combat air vehicle mock-up has a low-observable intake mounted on top of the fuselage. One internal weapons bay door is also open.

    MiG today revealed a full-scale engineering mock-up of its unmanned combat air vehicle (UCAV) design, nicknamed Skat (Skate). Work on the low-observable design began over two years ago, and MiG will produce a flight worthy prototype within 24-months.

    The MiG program is one of two competing designs that will be presented to the Russian Defense Ministry as a strike UCAV. Sukhoi is also understood to be working on a UCAV.


    A comparison of Skat's plan form and that of a MiG-29 Fulcrum provides a sense of the size of the design.

    MiG unveiled the program during the Moscow air show, though only a few journalists were taken off the show site to a MiG facility at the Gromov flight test research institute.

    Skat has two internal weapons bays, capable of carrying air-to-surface missiles as large as the Kh-31 (AS-17 Krypton). Possible roles include the suppression and attack of enemy air defenses.


    Partner companies are listed on the inside of the weapon bay door. The saw-tooth door edges are typical of low-observable design.

    MiG is working with a number of Russian companies and state institutes -- including the 2nd Central Scientific Research Institute -- on Skat. The institute is known to be closely involved in low-observable research and development.

    The first version of Skat to fly is planned to be piloted in order to meet Russian flight regulations. A number of aerodynamic configurations have been wind-tunnel tested, including with small twin fins. MiG has settled on a tail-less configuration.


    Various configurations have been wind-tunnel tested. This version appears to show a cockpit option for the first prototype, which will be piloted. MiG has settled on a tail-less design for final UCAV airframe.

    The single-engine subsonic design has an 11.5 meter wingspan, and it is 10.25 meters long. The UCAV has a maximum take-off weight of 10 tons, with a maximum speed of 800 kilometers per hour (497 mph) at low altitude. It is intended to carry a combat load of up to two tons, with a combat radius of 2,000 km.

    The Skat will be powered by the Klimov RD-5000B, a derivative of the RD-93. Two demonstrators will be built, the second will be unmanned. The flight tests will be used to prove the design and air vehicle systems. Weapon firings will also be carried out.


    Control surfaces can be seen deployed on the wing trailing edge, while some of Skat's potential weaponry, including guided-bombs and the Kh-31 missile (AS-17 Krypton) are also shown.

    * The U.S. unmanned reconnaissance-strike Fortress - Reaper - able to fly more than seven thousand miles and carry up to 14 rockets "air-ground" Hellfire - it is quite possible that just such characteristics required of the Russian constructors


    Russian Ministry of Defense has decided to supply their units and heavy striking drones that would be competitive in the U.S..

    So far, the defense Minisarstvo ordered unmanned aircraft small and middle classes that were intended for reconnaissance. The only project of heavy firing drones - "Skat," which was designed MiG - was viewed as a scale model of aviosalonu MAX 2007th year, but still not perfected.

    A number of Russian companies have developed projects impact unmanned camera, but without the `technical 'task of the Ministry of Defence this work had no meaning.

    The Ministry has already determined the characteristics of `shock` flying apparatus and technical task is completed. The bottom line is: the future impact of Russian UAVs will have to be able to not only perform reconnaissance, but also to launch missiles at targets on the ground.

    - We got the defense Minisarstva technical task for the new UAV. The device will be built on the basis of module design. Its installation will still be possible depending on the task - different types of reconnaissance, photo and video recording, observation and patrol facilities. And will be able to carry weapons - said the manager of "Tranzas" which manufactures electronic systems, control systems and navigation.

    The press service of a MiG-said they do not impact on unmanned aircraft. Other airline giant could be found in the game, but he wants - only to safety.

    - We could design a flying unmanned device, to have all the resources. However, no clear position the patron, such work is, simply, economically inefficient - said associate company "Sukhoi".


    Vladimir Putin and Alexander Zeljin

    Russian Air Force Commander Alexander Zeljin said the unmanned flying machines to be handed over to the army until 2020. year. Experts believe that the first machines to be ready for 2016th , and then will begin testing.

    Designers hide technical features of new unmanned aerial vehicles, citing a military secret. So the chief portals UAV.ru Fedutinov Denis said that Russia will impact your UAV, najvereovatnije, made in two versions: the first - with a mass of 800 to 1000 kg, and the other - from 4.5 to 5 tons.

    - Here is an apparatus for high altitude flight with the ability to fly long. In addition to reconnaissance and surveillance operations, will be used in war conditions and application of fire strikes - he explained.

    Fedutinov recalled the history of U.S. drones appear similar class.

    Predator was originally produced as a surveillance camera, but in the last two versions of the armed protivraketama. Heavier version - Reaper - produced as a percussive device that is able to carry a larger amount of weapons and nomenclature.

    Predator a top speed of 217 km / h, the maximum flight distance is 740 km, a maximum height of ascent is greater than 18 thousand m. In flight mode, the machine can be up to 20 hours and to carry 1360 kg of cargo.

    Reaper is able to fly more than seven thousand miles and carry up to 14 rockets "air-ground" Hellfire. It will be guided by such characteristics of Russian designers, experts believe.

    According Fedutinov, the main advantage of UAVs compared to tactical missiles - is the ability to respond quickly to fluctuating conditions.

    - When the rocket is no longer possible to change the trajectory of its operational flight - in the event that circumstances change. When unmanned aircraft start to the finish, he can do the reconnaissance, surveillance and even further, and then to inflict even more precisely and rocket attack. Such devices are effective for the destruction of enemy manpower, especially when moving locally and difficult terrain. In addition to missiles able to carry bombs, to be offset by manpower, but technology and hidden objects - he said.

    I will Russia, as well as Americans and Israelis, have to - but the very production of unmanned aircraft - great attention to training their operators.

    - During testing of the Israeli drones at the training ground in Kolomna lost fewer than five machines. The generals wanted to play with džojsitcima, although one of the advantages of these devices the ability to operate in fully automated mode - revealed to the press source from the Russian military-industrial complex.

    MiG and Sukhoi to join forces on Russian UCAV

    By Unmanned Editor

    August 11, 2011 Posted in: Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAV) News

    RSK MiG will work together with Sukhoi on a future unmanned combat air vehicle (UCAV), using experience gained on its Skat programme.


    Russian MiG Skat UCAV

    The Skat design was demonstrated to a small group of Russian media at the MAKS air show in Moscow in 2007, and until recently was thought to have been shelved.

    Newly appointed MiG general director Sergey Korotkov said at a recent media briefing that the two companies would collaborate in the future.

    Vladimir Barkovsky, chief of MiG’s engineering centre, said he cannot foresee whether a next-generation MiG would be a manned or unmanned aircraft.

    “This depends on maturity of technologies available to us when the decision is made to launch [a new programme],” he said.

    The Skat programme has given the airframer invaluable experience in the UCAV sector, Barkovsky added.

    “This helped us create a technology base for the next phase of our studies, which we continue to carry out,” he added.

    Extensive wind tunnel testing on various Skat configurations was performed at Russia’s Central Aerohydrodynamic Institute, TsAGI, during which MiG tried to find an optimal balance between size for a specified payload and combat efficiency.

    The first photo of the Hunter impact drone appeared on the Web



    The winged car with special sensors on the fuselage, made according to the “flying wing” scheme, was captured on one of the airfields. Previously announced the first rolling out of this combat aircraft.



    It has also been reported that preparations for the first test flight are currently underway.



    According to previously published information, the C-70 “Hunter” will have a radar stealth and weigh about 20 tons. He will be able to use various precision weapons. The maximum flight speed will exceed 1000 km / h. "Hunter" will have the opportunity for a long time to be in the air and make long-distance flights.

    Currently, one of the promising Su-57 fighters is involved in the test program of the new UAV.
