    ... there was a case, they transported "Katran" across Red Square ... times are changing and more and more robotic equipment is required in the troops, I suppose this device will also occupy its niche ... (I add to what was written because the Internet crashes)

    I don’t understand why it was necessary to show it at the parade, if it doesn’t even fly yet? Well, they would show off already when it was launched into the series and began to enter the troops. As usual, they run in front of the locomotive, and then sit in a puddle. I would not be surprised if it happens the same as with other promising developments: they will scream from each iron about "not having an analogue in the world", and then they will mumble that he is not needed in the troops and without him "everything is fine"

        Aha, aha. Only now they will take and announce "no money, but you hold on." And the Army will be exposed for the umpteenth time to ridicule. As it was more than once with the Armats, Kurgan, Su-57. And it turns out that its information weapon works for some reason exclusively against the Russian army.

      Such a drone is unlikely to be abandoned. Without an UAV, nowhere. Moreover, on this there is the opportunity to make a shock option, in which we have a drawback.

    I can’t understand one thing, why the hell is the device dragging around in parades, throwing cheap show-offs that have not even been tested? What the hell is this cheap show?

      in Soviet times, a large number of truly modern weapons were being developed, so the news was classified even when the troops were already marching, now we have to pretend that we have a lot of the latest weapons, and that’s why cheap show-offs

      Showing that the Rogozins from the "booth" of the liberals work as effective managers with "unparalleled" achievements, and at the same time cover the cuts and embezzlement of the budget of the Ministry of Defense, so they drag the same models and models around the parades, and serial production in the troops is the third thing. A new hobbyhorse appeared to justify the withdrawal of "extra" money from the Ministry of Defense, modernization of warehouse antiquities, they even took up the T-62 ...
