Ramzay RZ-500

On June 15–18, 2021, the only event in Ukraine in the field of aviation and space technologies – Aviasvit-XXI International Aviation and Space Salon – took place at the International Exhibition Centre. Aviation industry of Ukraine was traditionally represented by booths of industry leaders and numerous booths of public and private enterprises. The real trend of the exhibition in 2021 was a large number of companies that presented unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) of various types and purposes.

Ramzay had a loud premiere of RZ-500, the first UAV attack helicopter in Ukraine. According to the developers, this UAV helicopter will be able to carry and use missile weapons, its weight is 500 kg, and the additional payload is up 100 kg. In addition, the helicopter has a high degree of protection against hostile EW. RZ-500 can be in the air for up to three hours, its maximum range is 300 km, and the tactical radius is 60-80 km without the use of a repeater.

“Our helicopter can be transported to a selected point within a few hours, even in the mountains. In addition, RZ-500 can fly at very low altitudes, 50-100 m, and be invisible to enemy radars. It can also strike while hiding behind a house or a forest strip. It can be completely invisible to the enemy, because the missile has a range of up to 7.5 km, which means that no one will hear, see or know where the munition came from,” said Deputy Director for Development of Ramzay.

Purpose RZ-500 - reconnaissance, targeting (illumination of targets for high-precision munitions with laser guidance) and self-destruction of ground, including armored, targets. The drone will receive a sighting unit PrK-R-21. Currently, the manned version of the RZ-500 is working on remote control elements for further testing of the drone in full.
