On the bmpd side, we recall that the company "Kronstadt", part of AFK "Sistema" (called Transas until 2015), is engaged in the creation of the Orion UAV in the framework of the development work (ROC) "Inohodets". The created UAV belongs to the class of medium-altitude apparatus of long flight duration. It is assumed that the maximum flight duration will be at least 24 hours, and the ceiling - about 8000 meters.

In October 2011, the Russian Ministry of Defense entered into a contract with the Transas company for the development of the "Inohodets" experimental design for the creation of a reconnaissance UAV with a mass of about 1 ton. In 2015, at MAKS-2015, the former president of the Transas group of companies Nikolai Lebedev said that the actual takeoff weight of the Orion UAV is 1,200 kilograms, the payload weight is 300 kilograms.

According to the known data, the flight tests of the first prototype UAV "Orion" were launched in the spring of 2016. It is known that in the summer and autumn of 2016 the prototype apparatus was tested at the aerodrome of the Flight Research Institute named after M.M. Gromov in the Zhukovsky.

Russia to develop cruise missiles capable of striking targets at 1,000km range

Military & Defense July 20, 17:42 UTC+3
The missiles will be developed before 2020

ZHUKOVSKY, July 20. /TASS/. Russia will develop a family of air-launched precision cruise missiles before 2020 that will be capable of striking targets at a distance of up to 1,000 kilometers, Tactical Missiles Corporation CEO Boris Obnosov said on Thursday.

"Work is under way on a new family of items with a range of 200km, 400km, 600km and 1,000km. That is why, work in this area is being carried out. I believe that before 2020 we’ll surely roll out this family of items [missiles]," Obnosov said at the MAKS-2017 airshow, responding to a question about whether Russia was developing the analog of the US JASSM high precision long-range cruise missile.
As the Tactical Missiles Corporation head said, one missile can’t engage all the targets. "In some cases, it is inefficient to cover a longer range," he said, explaining the need to develop a whole family of missiles.
The US JASSM high precision cruise missile is intended to strike well-protected stationary and relocatable targets in any weather conditions and at any time of the day from distances off the enemy’s air defenses’ reach. It has a radius of operation of 370 km (JASSM-ER has an operational radius of up to 1,000 km). The missile is capable of delivering 450kg warheads.

RUSSIA’S NEW MILITARY PLAN CALLS FOR DEFENSE AGAINST THE U.S. ACROSS THE ‘WORLD OCEAN’
BY DAMIEN SHARKOV ON 7/20/17 AT 2:53 PM

WORLDRUSSIARUSSIAN NAVYVLADIMIR PUTIN
Russian President Vladimir Putin has signed off on a new state policy strategy for his navy that views the U.S. as aspiring to dominate the world’s oceans in a threat to Russia.

The strategy, in effect as of Thursday—the day Putin signed it—sheds more light into where Russia’s fleet sees potential for international friction and conflict. Among the direct naval threats for Russia falls “the striving of a series of governments, above all the United States of America and its allies to dominate the oceans, including in the Arctic and also to reach an intimidating supremacy with its naval forces.”

The strategy outline, binding until 2030, adds to previous statements from Russian navy officials who have designated the Arctic a priority development area for Moscow. The Arctic and the globe’s resource-rich northernmost are the subject of claims by Russia and four other countries, all of whom are U.S. allies.

In the 22-page navy document, intended as the policy foundation for future Russian military activities, the Kremlin’s ambitious self-image is clear. “The Russian Federation continues to retain its status as a great naval state, whose naval potential ensures the defensive of its national interests in any part of the World Ocean,” the paper declares.

The document claims that other countries are trying to “limit Russia’s access to resources at sea and its access to vitally important naval transport communications,” a copy of Putin’s decree on Russia’s official legal documents database said.

The picture painted by the new strategy is one of a wider conspiracy to “reduce the effectiveness” of Russia’s navy through “economic, political, legal and military pressure on Russia.”

Meanwhile the world is in for a rough ride by 2030, the document warns, predicting “an unstable military-political environment, characterized by the increase of global competition, rivalry in the world power centers” due both to the rise of extremism and international power plays.

Russia’s navy is “one of the most effective tools of strategic (nuclear and non-nuclear) containment, including in preventing a global strike,” Putin’s decree said.
