Take off & land anywhere: Russia unveils hybrid amphibious drone vehicle

A drone hybridized with an amphibious hovercraft has been presented at the Innoprom-2014 technology exhibition in Russia's Yekaterinburg. This unique UAV doesn’t need an airfield to launch, so the only alternative is a helicopter.

Russia’s Rostech state corporation presented the first-ever drone that can land on any terrain, whether hummocky land, loose snow, sand, water, or swampland - any relatively flat surface will do.

The aircraft dubbed Chirok (Teal) is both an unmanned aerial and amphibious vehicle; it was developed by Rotech’s branch, Integrated Instrument-making Corporation (IIC).

“There is only one alternative to this aircraft [Chirok] – a helicopter,” Aleksey Smirnov, the head of the unmanned aerial vehicles department at Radio-Technical Institute, told the OTV channel.
