In Russia, ground tests of the transport drone TRAMP (transport aviation multifunctional platform) have begun – the first flight is scheduled for April. This was reported by RIA Novosti to a source in the military-industrial complex (OPK).
According to the source of the agency, the developers have begun testing the drone on the ground. Drone control systems and mechanisms are checked and debugged, a series of runs are performed without leaving the runway to refine the calculated parameters.
The development of a long-range transport drone of the aircraft type TRAMP was previously reported . It is capable of transferring up to 250 kilograms of cargo over a distance of over 600 kilometers. A key feature of the new machine is the presence of a large cargo compartment with a volume of 2650 liters. It allows you to load oversized cargo on board, as well as drop it with a parachute to a given point.
