In advance of the International Aviation and Space Salon MAKS-2015, United Instrument Manufacturing Corporation (UIMC) has shown pictures of the Chirok Russian reconnaissance and combat hovercraft drone for the first time. Its presentation will be one of the most anticipated events of the forum, held in Zhukovsky.

The Moscow Scientific Research and Radio Technology Institute, which is part of UIMC, developed the Chirok UAV (unmanned aerial vehicle).

According to the calculations of designers, the domestically produced UAV needs only 100 meters to take off from uneven or marshy areas. Chirok is designed to monitor the ground or water surfaces, as well to transport various payloads. The military will be able to use this drone for reconnaissance and attack purposes.
