Loitering Tube Strikes Against Ground Targets
As part of the practical training of strike unmanned aircraft systems specialists, Display Design Office JSC in 2020 completed more than 80 flights with the combat use of unmanned aircraft systems (UAS).
The Loitering Tube is equipped with RPG-26 anti-tank rocket-propelled grenades to destroy armoured vehicles, and also has the ability to apply small-sized aircraft bombs PTAB-2.5 and PTAB-10-5 to destroy area targets and enemy personnel, adapted by the Precise Electromechanics Factory (RPUE) specialists for the use with an unmanned aerial vehicle.
During the tests at the 174th Air Force and Air Defence training ground at Domanovo, the operators and flight directors of Display Design Office JSC demonstrated excellent practical skills, hitting successfully all assigned targets by strike UASs.
In the future, it is planned to continue training of strike UASs operators, as well as technical improvement of products as part of the development work.
Practical application of the developed products will continue at the training grounds of the Belarusian Armed Forces as part of the tests and demonstrations of strike UASs capabilities during combat training of troops, as well as product presentations to potential customers.
