Tachyon type UAV Went on Trial
Russia starts the state testing of unmanned aerial reconnaissance and surveillance complex.
UAV is equipped with electric motors, powered by the fuel cells instead of batteries, according to the Military-Industrial Courier, citing a source in the military-industrial complex. The electric motor on fuel cells produces energy for flight by its electrochemical generator of electricity. The fuel is the compressed hydrogen, the oxidizer – atmosphere oxygen.
The fuel cells will be installed on Tachyon type UAV, performed by a “flying wing” design by the company “Izhmash – unmanned systems”. To date, the UAV with fuel cells has successfully passed the stages of plant and preliminary tests to obtain letter of the development prototype.
