      If we have pride in our weapons, and for the fact that we can create them, then others have pride in what they can buy from others ... such a consciousness in their heads!

    For the tenth year, our gallant VKS uses the legendary invisible strike and reconnaissance-drone drones. This allowed our VKS in real time to monitor the situation on the theater of operations and launch missile and bomb strikes. Efficiency is high, safety for operators is absolute. Yes, we protect our pilots. Such a successful application of the latest invisible unmanned systems allows our country to be not only among the leaders of UAV operators, but also to look with confidence in the future. For unmanned systems- The future and it is not far off! Hooray comrades! Hurray to the military-technical, scientific and industrial potential of Russia ... PPC what a shame! For about 20 years, a frank chatter was heard from our military and political leadership about what was needed and now ...
