Fallout Re: The UAV Club

If nothing else this will provide a very good start point for the small UAV types, countries and capabilities of these "craft". They are more capable then is being discussed, for instance the first has an IR integrated system and can carrying a payload to pick up up acoustic "signatures" etc. Also in Post #1 I listed further good sites that cover the topic. In no particular country order.

CANADA: Aeryon SkyRanger sUAS...
http://www.airforce-technology.com/p...kyranger-suas/

SWEDEN: APID-55 VTOL Miniature UAV. This does more fall into the class of a intermediate class but, you need to be aware this class does exist so as not to deprive anyone (Country) not to have them.
http://www.airforce-technology.com/p...ro-apid55-uav/

U.S.: Avinc Puma AE Unmanned Aerial Vehicle...
http://www.airforce-technology.com/p...vincpumaaeuav/

Avinc Wasp Unmanned Aerial Vehicle...
http://www.airforce-technology.com/p.../avincwaspuav/

Bat Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV), again of the more medium class with the difference being as the lead picture shows needing more logistical support though it's still a off map battlefield UAV.
http://www.airforce-technology.com/p...ropgrummanbat/

ISRAEL: BirdEye 400 Unmanned Aerial Vehicle...
http://www.airforce-technology.com/projects/birdeye400/

AUSTRIA: Camcopter S-100 UAV another medium class, much in line with SWEDEN's above.
http://www.airforce-technology.com/p...opters-100uav/

TAIWAN: Another "backpack" UAV that are probaly entering the field now.
http://www.airforce-technology.com/p...rcraft-system/

That'll get you through the "C's" the rest were more in the standard version larger versions. As you can their would be work hear just insuring these countries get them into the game-I'm not saying it's not worth the effort necessarily however this is opening a can of worms for forum members who might be finding that "I didn't know we had those!" I don't blame them as generally speaking these are slightly less of a niche than Gunships in the overall scheme of things and you have to realize the "Big Players" no longer have exclusive rights to having "eyes in the sky" even if that means a few 100m over the next treeline.

About http://www.airforce-technology.com/ 1. On the left side second "box" down, click on
"See All Projects".

2. In the middle column, you'll see "By Category", then click on "Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAV / (UCAV) (81), as you can see they cover 81 types.

Funny how when this started the conversation was all over the forum. There was enthusiasm for the thread, it died sort of, and cycles back. The way of the forum at times. But note some of this been around for a very longtime including a Russian one I found going back to the late 70's/or early 80's. Amazing.

Have a great day!

Regards,
Pat

Fallout Re: The UAV Club

It's been at least 6 years now since this thread was "needed" so to my mind it's like "one stop shopping" like the others. As I noted in Post #11 (Just checked those links and they are all working, including those on Pg. 1.) above...
"Funny how when this started the conversation was all over the forum. There was enthusiasm for the thread, it died sort of, and cycles back. The way of the forum at times."

For me and after long thought it's (This thread.) cycled back just from the simple fact of organization among others.

I'll be using it again, for my own purposes as noted. Please feel free to do the same if you wish.

Regards,
Pat

Here practical fight with Shahed-136 by Ukrainian Police they prepare post when they try shot down passing vehicle they are hard to be captured by radars because are slow and flight on low altitude but have very loud engines and policemen can spot them by loudness.

Article and movie from shooting down

The Shahed seems little more than a 21st century V-1

There is not only Shahed they also mention about small number of Kub and Lancet drones. They created Mobile Firing Group (MFG) which may be worth to add to OOB

Quote:
"What is a mobile firing group?" he continued, "It’s 4-5 people, usually 2 MANPADS launchers, a communication device and a mobile vehicle. They dispersed across the country and stay in specific spots. They receive centralized information, what is flying, where and where from, and this is how they work on their targets."

Can (should?) this be represented in WinSPMBT?

By 2018, the Marine Corps was deploying a Counter-Unmanned Aerial System (C-UAS) that can be mounted onto an M-ATV.
