The BAS-750 marks a joint Russian-Belarusian rotary-wing Unmanned Aircraft System (UAS) development. The design incorporates the complete Vertical Take-Off and Landing (VTOL) capabilities of a traditional helicopter and takes the onboard operating crew out of the physical loop. The drone was unveiled at the Army-2022 exposition in Russia in August of 2022.
Externally, the drone is conventionally-arranged as modern helicopters go: the body houses all pertinent operating systems including engine, fuel, and avionics. A traversable "blister" turret is set in the "chin" position offering unobstructed views of the terrain ahead and around the drone. A twin-skid, fixed undercarriage provides the needed ground support and wing stubs are noted along the sides of the fuselage, presumably for the mounting various mission / cargo pods.
The powerplant (of unknown make, model, and output power at this time) drives a three-bladed main rotor unit over the fuselage as well as a two-bladed tail rotor unit at the rear, this rotor facing starboard. Vertical tail fins are present along both the dorsal and ventral lines of the empennage.
The size of the aircraft is such that it can be operated from land or from the deck of a ship. Its VTOL capabilities allow it to reach areas typically unreachable by fixed-wing UAV types. Maximum Take-Off Weight (MTOW) of the design is reportedly at 1,655lb requiring a truck or similar vehicle to transport the unit.
At the core of the design is a multi-mission mindset, the air vehicle offered as a tactical-level solution across various sectors including military, civilian, and industry. A pair of helicopters complete the package and operation is by way of a Ground Control Station (GCS) with the two aircraft being networked into the flow.

(Showcased structural values pertain to the base Rostech BAS-750 production variant)
monoplane / mid-mounted / straight
Design utilizes a single primary wing mainplane; this represent the most popular mainplane arrangement.
Mainplanes are mounted along the midway point of the sides of the fuselage.
The planform involves use of basic, straight mainplane members.
(Structural descriptors pertain to the base Rostech BAS-750 production variant)
1 x Conventional engine of unknown make, model, and output power driving three-bladed main rotor unit and two-bladed tail rotor unit (facing starboard side).
