MOSCOW, February 14. /TASS/. Russia’s Tactical Missiles Corporation is carrying out work on developing small-size munitions for unmanned aerial vehicles, Corporation Chief Boris Obnosov said on Friday.

“This issue is important and developers are trying to reduce both the dimensional and weight characteristics of air-launched weapons. The items in the weight category of 50 kg to 100 kg will enjoy strong demand,” the chief executive said at a news briefing on the results of the corporation’s performance in 2019.

The Tactical Missiles Corporation is carrying out work in this area together with Kronshtadt hi-tech firm, he added.

At the Army-2018 international arms show, Kronshtadt unveiled its Orion-E drone together with a mock-up of a 50 kg air-to-surface missile. With its maximum take-off weight of 1,000 kg, the Orion-E can carry a 200 kg payload of four 50-kg or two 100-kg munitions.

The Tactical Missiles Corporation is one of Russia’s largest defense holding companies with 100% of its stock owned by the Federal State Property Agency. The corporation is headquartered in the town of Korolyov in the Moscow Region. The Tactical Missile Corporation specializes in developing and delivering missiles for air-, shipborne and ground-based tactical systems and for naval underwater weapons.
