Sample of Hovercraft Drone “Chirok” Ready for Testing
The first full-length sample of reconnaissance and strike Russian hovercraft UAV “Chirok” is preparing for test flights, a source in the United instrument-making corporation (part of Rostec) said.
“Last year the layout of “Chirok” was presented at the scale of 1:5, and now the full-scale model is ready with the wingspan of ten meters. Now the “Chirok” is brought to the mind and is preparing for the flight tests,” the source said to TASS.
We recall that innovative unmanned aerial vehicle “Chirok” has been presented in July last year at the international exhibition of technologies “Innoprom”. It is noted that the device has no analogues in the world; the hovercraft drones are not commercially available.
