The loading time of flight missions into aircraft weapons on the Su-34 front-line bomber has been reduced by three times. This was announced by the Minister of Defense of the Russian Federation, General of the Army Sergei Shoigu following a visit to the Novosibirsk Aviation Plant named after V.P. Chkalov.
As the head of the military department noted during an inspection of the final assembly shop of Su-34 aircraft, where improved machines are assembled and combat aircraft of this type are being finalized, the Ministry of Defense has been developing, mastering and testing highly intelligent technology for several years, where the latest achievements in the field of artificial intelligence. Moreover, the capabilities of such samples of equipment, added Sergei Shoigu, were confirmed in Syria.
“In particular, we are talking about the Su-34 aircraft. I will say without details that new, modern, very effective types of weapons and reconnaissance have been mastered. On this plane, we have achieved, perhaps, what we have long dreamed of – bringing the flight mission to armament has been reduced by almost three times. For this I say thanks to both the plant and the designers, ”the Minister of Defense noted.
“We introduced the flight mission before departure, and while we were flying, during this time the situation had time to change. Now the flight mission is loaded into the weapon during the flight, ”the head of the military department explained.
