The Antonov Horlytsya is being developed for the Ukrainian Army as a direct-attack Unmanned Combat Aerial Vehicle.
Detailing the development and operational history of the Antonov Horlytsya Tactical Unmanned Combat Aerial Vehicle (UCAV).Entry last updated on 12/1/2017. Authored by Staff Writer. Content ©www.MilitaryFactory.com
The aircraft incorporates a cylindrical fuselage design with high-mounted straight mainplanes. A twin-boom arrangement meets aft at two inward-cranked vertical tail fins. The engine is fitted to the rear of the fuselage section which also contains the fuel stores as well as avionics fit. The UAV features a wheeled, fixed tricycle undercarriage for ground-running. The sensor fit is set to become the standard Electro-Optical (EO) / InfraRed (IR) pairing with automatic tracking and aiming features. Armament will be featured across two underwing hardpoints (one per wing element).
Antonov has stated that their Horlytsya will feature a mission endurance window of about seven hours and flies to altitudes of 16,400 feet with a range out to 620 miles. Its development is very important to the Ukrainian military which is currently embroiled in a war with Russia along its eastern frontier. The Horlytsya will provide a much-needed eye-in-the-sky for the services and reduce reliance on foreign military suppliers - particularly those from nations that do not wish to become involved in the ongoing Donbass War (2014-Present).
