The fastest Russian tiltrotor drone “Lovkiy” in the special military operation (SVO) zone is invulnerable to Ukrainian weapons, says a military expert, retired colonel Anatoly Matviychuk. In a conversation with Lenta.ru, he named the features of this drone.
“This is a new modification of the drone, created according to a new design. I believe it will increase our intelligence data and increase the delivery of ammunition over longer ranges. Its speed allows it to move beyond the reach of Ukrainian weapons. Today this is Russian know-how; neither the West nor our opponents have it. Ukraine. It walks like an airplane, flies and maneuvers like a helicopter. Its maneuverability is much higher than that of a conventional drone,” he explained.
On the creation of a new domestic drone reported at the Hardberry-RusFactor company. The device can fly 2.5 times faster and longer than any copter in a war zone between Russia and Ukraine. Head of the enterprise Alexey German added that there are no similar machines on the domestic market.
The new product is made on the principle of a tiltrotor and is capable of reaching speeds of up to 160, and if necessary, up to 200 kilometers per hour. The device rises into the air like a regular quadcopter, but once in the sky it moves according to the laws of aerodynamics like an airplane. At the same time, “Dexterous” consumes 70 percent less energy than any other drone. This allows him to plan 2.5 times longer.
