The Chinese press spoke about the success of Russia in the creation of military drones

Russia is actively developing all types of UAVs, intending to increase the number of tasks performed by UAVs. According to the Chinese newspaper Zhongguo Junwang, the Russian Ministry of Defense has summed up the results of the use of an unmanned aviation in the Russian army.


The Directorate for the Construction and Development of the Use of Unmanned Aerial Vehicles, created in 2012 under the General Staff of the Russian Armed Forces, believes that the UAV units have made a great leap forward in development in terms of scale, structure and real combat capabilities.

To date, the Russian army has formed 53 UAV units, in service with which it is building about 2 thousand drones. Every year 924 the State Center for Unmanned Aviation trains about 1 thousand drone operators and UAV unit commanders.

In recent years, the top leadership of the Russian army has attached great importance to the use of drones in the Armed Forces, correctly understanding the role of unmanned aircraft in modern wars.

According to the Chinese newspaper, since 2018, there has been a breakthrough in the construction of Russian military drones, after which the UAV range has begun to expand. In addition to foreign models built in Russia under license, domestic UAVs have been developed. Many ideas were formed for the further development of unmanned aircraft. More than 30 Russian military aircraft-building giants are involved in the development of drones, including RSK MiG, OKB P.O. Sukhoi, United Instrument-Making Corporation, Tupolev Design Bureau and others.

The drones "Takhion", "Orlan", "Eleron" and "Granat" have been created and are widely used. UAVs "Forpost" and "Zastava", which are foreign models, have been improved in Russia with the use of Russian technologies. creation of heavy shock and shock-reconnaissance drones Projects of drones "Okhotnik", "Altair", "Altius-RU", "Orion" and others entered the stage of flight tests and acceptance works.

Also, the Russian Ministry of Defense pays great attention to the training of UAV operators, who are recruited only from officers and contract soldiers.

The planned development of the UAV will help the Russian military to carry out a variety of combat missions. By 2025, the number of offensive missions performed by Russian drones will be doubled compared to current values, and their role in combat operations will become more prominent, the publication sums up.

    It was a bit late in the pursuit, but, God forbid, to catch up and overtake.
    In general, good luck guys!

      Or maybe not, took a closer look, appreciated the pros and cons, started to implement it. But without the Soviet legacy in the form of TNW and the Army, this would not have happened.

        About 3 weeks ago, there was a material about Turkish drones that broke Armenians in Karabakh and about our lagging behind ... I myself unsubscribed a little pessimistically, but I was told about the presence of guided munitions. And here the Chinese write that things are even better with us ... It seems that the Chinese media are more knowledgeable ... If this is so, then I'm just happy for our military-industrial complex, and if not, then let them think that everything is like in the press , think and fear!
        In general, my opinion about the existing UAVs now: without the correct organization of the air defense, this is a real force, which we saw in Syria and Libya and in Karabakh, but if the air defense is organized at a sufficient level, then all the handicraft and semi-handicraft items easily land ... are not, but they must be reckoned with.

    This case, the belated recognition and reaction to the threat that arose ... well, that there were no heavy losses! But this is not the first time this happens and in the future this should not be allowed !!!

    this is of course true, but when you start from zero, then any positive result is a big leap, you need to compare not with your own zero, but with the fact that in this area a potential enemy has, and before them we still need to make many big leaps in development

    It's good that we realized. Further - we will develop

    On such a gigantic territory, there are only 2000 drones - including heavy, reconnaissance and kamikaze drones?
    After the infusion of a huge amount of budget money into the military-industrial complex of Russia and such a modest result ... except for bewilderment, such devastating statistics causes nothing. HORROR.

        In this number, they have already been tested even in Syria.
        The Ministry of Defense plans to adjust plans for the development of unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs). The changes were prepared based on the experience of Syria and the study of modern conflicts, including the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict, sources in the military department told Izvestia. Targets for the number of drones of different classes may be revised. It is also possible to change priorities in the development of new designs.


        This week, the head of Rostec, Sergei Chemezov, told the media that light loitering kamikaze drones Lancet, created by the Kalashnikov concern, were tested in Syria. The head of the state corporation also said that the Korsar UAV, which is at the testing stage, will also have an impact function, weighing about 200 kg.

          Where did you notice my nervousness? Well, if there is enough on the territory of Ukraine, and Ukraine has a decent territory, many states are even less, then the situation is good, which goes against the meaning of your first comment ...

      It's just that mass production hasn't started yet. The tests will be completed and then serial production will begin, and then the number of UAVs will be much higher.
      Considerable successes with the Russian military have appeared in the creation of heavy shock and shock-reconnaissance drones. Drone projects "Okhotnik", "Altair", "Altius-RU", "Orion" and others have entered the stage of flight tests and acceptance works.

    I understand that it is better later than never.
    But after all some "responsible uncle" stubbornly considered the UAV ONLY as an addition to the aircraft. The same "Hunter" for example.
    On the other hand, there is a considerable dependence on this issue on the far unfriendly Israel.
    It took Syria, Libya, Karabakh to realize the need for unmanned aerial vehicles, both drums and others, and autonomous ones.
    They tried, however, to prove the effectiveness of Russian anti-UAV weapons.
    But this is absurd, if not worse.

    The Russians are slow to harness, but they drive fast. Just suitable, and in my opinion, not only in this area. Something in the west cackled, and that is not so and it is not that way. I think in 10-15 years a lot will change.

    Chinese press that British scientists! When our Orions will hang over Syria for days, and not our boys will fly on the Su-24, but the Hunter, Altair, Altius-RU, on a mission to destroy, then we will sing out the mantra about our successes.

    Until there are decent engines, microelectronics, communications, satellite constellation, there will be no breakthrough.
