    This is a flying model and not a full-fledged UAV.
    The maximum speed is 230 km/h
    flight altitude - up to 5 km and the flight Duration up to 7 hours.
    However, the tactical radius, it is not large - only 80 km,
    payload - 50 kg.
    Can be equipped with guided missiles (probably RK-3 -2pcs or AL-8 -4 pcs.). But AL-8 long (this is a controllable cumulative version of the S8). Nomenclature of weapons conjectural. The representative of "Antonov" it did not elaborate.

    Russian Institute for Robotic Technologies in cooperation with Prospective Research Fundation and Russian MOD have created unique software that turns a group of standard UAVs/UCAVs into a combat swarm:

    HAL Seeking Private Sector Partner to Manufacture its 320 daN turbojet for missiles / drones

    [​IMG]

    HAL intends to design and develop a 320 daN (326 kgf) thrust class jet engine for various applications.The single spool turbo jet engine would have an envelope diameter of 310 mm and length of 740 mm.

    It would be capable of operating in altitude range of Sea Level to 8.5 km.The engine would have a SFC of 1.175 kg/daN-h, a starting envelop of 8.5 km to SL @ 0.4 to 0.8M, endurance of 1,000 sec

    Physical Parameters and Weight

    Length <= 740mm (Excluding LRUs)
    Diameter <= 310mm
    Dry weight < 44-kg (Excluding LRUs and cartridge Starter)

    Initial Requirement
    2 engines for Technology Demonstrator (TD)
    10 prototype engines for various certifications / qualification trials
    5 deliverable engines for limited series production

    Private Sector Manufacturing Partnership

    HAL on May 31, 2016 released a RFI for 'Selection of an Indian partner to manufacture aero engine in India.'

    The due date for submission of a response to the RFI is August 10, 2016

    HAL has invited interested Indian partners to undertake the manufacture of the engine by establishing all the required facilities including test rigs and engine test bed. HAL will manufacture 2 technology demonstrators and 3 qualification test units.

    In the proposed partnership arrangement, the marketing of end product will be in the scope of HAL.

    The current projection is to produce about 12 engines over 2 years time frame after initial development phase. The engine under development is likely to undergo changes during the productionisation. Once the development phase is completed, it is anticipated that the total no of engines required would be around 250 over 5 to 6 year period.

    It is very speculative now, That we might not see Rustom-2 anytime soon ..

    Instead of going for a turbo prop or piston, They might go for this engine ..
