The probe - the Russian multi-purpose unmanned aerial vehicle dual-use designed in 2014, the company "Sukhoi".

Design of unmanned aircraft model probe was deployed by Russian aircraft manufacturers and experts in the field of aerospace technology in 2011 year. New drone probe is still in the early stages of design positioned as a multipurpose aircraft capable to find the active application, not only in the military but also in the civil sphere, which secured this drone high popularity, and, not only in Russia, but and in other states.


UAV probe


Unmanned aircraft Probe has large dimensions, comparable to a small manned aircraft, in particular, maximum takeoff weight of the first version of the UAV is 12 tonnes, but, along with large dimensions, the drone probe has also broad functionality that makes the drone unique in its kind.

In the military sphere, an unmanned aerial vehicle The probe can be used to perform tasks related to reconnaissance, patrol and observation flights, search operations, and among other things, this device can also be used as an independent combat unit, for which the drone is equipped with a variety of weapons, Capable of combating ground and air targets. The civilian scope of UAV applications is wider, in particular, in addition to the above tasks (except for purely military ones), it can be used for airspace monitoring, atmospheric research, for meteorological research, as a means of subsurface probing of the earth and water surface, etc. .

Powerplant UAV probe represented by two turbofan engines, which allow drone reach a maximum speed of its movement in 750 km \ h. (Depending on the version), while the length of this auxiliary filter unit is 24 hours.

According to 2016 year, there are three basic versions of the development of this model drone:

  • Probe-1 - A civilian version of the UAV;
  • Probe-2 - 12-ton military unmanned aerial vehicle;
  • Probe-3 - 20-ton multi-purpose hammer military drone.
