I-TALD - American drone aircraft for military use, designed 70-ies, «Brunswick Corporation» Corporation.

The development and design of the military unmanned aerial vehicle of the I-TALD model was started by American aircraft builders in the first half of the 70-ies of the last century. The new device was very specific in its application, in particular, this drone could be used only as a target for training military skills of pilots of combat aircraft, conducting exercises, etc. Nevertheless, the I-TALD unmanned aerial vehicle proved to be very popular, which was primarily due to its sufficiently high flying-technical characteristics and low cost.

Launching UAV I-TALD produced either directly from the aircraft, or else with a special ramp, when we are talking about the need to launch the drone from the ground or from the deck of the ship.

Due to its excellent aerodynamics and compact dimensions of the fuselage, while the length of the drone in 2 34 meter centimeter scale of the device of the wings is only 1 55 meter centimeters, US drone aircraft can accelerate to rather high speed.

Powerplant unmanned air tool I-TALD represented by one turbojet brand Teledyne CAE J700-CA-400, which is having a thrust in 0,79 kN can overclock the device to the maximum airspeed in 790 km \ h. However, the maximum range of the drone's flight is limited by distance in 126 kilometers.

Over the entire period of production, the American aircraft manufacturers are three different variants of the UAV was built:

  • I-TALD ADM-141A - The base case the drone;
  • I-TALD ADM-141B - Version with increased maximum take-off weight;
  • I-TALD ADM-141C - An improved version of an unmanned aircraft with increased flight range.
