        Pashinyan is looking towards the United States, so it is not yet known from whom Armenia will buy the strike UAVs.
        And so the whole plant for the production of drummers is very good, and even on our territory and with our components ... we'll take a look.

              Why not produce UAVs for agriculture?

              Spraying fertilizers for example.

              Instead of strengthening the enemy, it is better to strengthen your own country. Militarily and civilly raising the economy.

              Need money? - make specialized products for civilians.

            The United States is doing business in its colonies, which they use to snatch their weapons. Ask yourself the question: why is the United States actually unable to produce tanks now, but Russia can? Hint: Russia sells cheap and sometimes on bad loans.

          There is very little information on the capabilities of the UAV. The radius of application is 250 km? Taking into account the need for an airfield for take-off and landing and safety standards, the combat radius is less than 200 km ... No information about the radar on board the UAV? Does that mean it's not all-weather? Although, information about the development of the NIIR "Fazatron" radar was ... Very weak possibilities for the use of ground guidance and illumination systems, only a channel for transmitting coordinates to the operator and not in real time .... What are the capabilities of a laser designator on board and the capabilities and availability of ammunition with such a guidance system? What swarms are we talking about, if such a UAV can be used as a platform with weapons outside the affected area and using target designation from a small UAV ... Let them make such a bundle, for real-time operation, and increase the possibility of a greater combat load ... Very the mediocre capabilities of avionics on board to work in a complex, not to mention network-centric systems, which do not exist ... Separate use of UAVs, without Combat Information Systems, only for war with partisans, as in Syria and Karabakh ... And how to control the border, for example, in Tajikistan with Afghanistan, for Russia and the CSTO, the same as in Armenia? .. Sea work ....

        yes, in no case should Pashinyan be given drones. He will immediately hand them over to the CIA, the Pentagon, and so on.
        And he has no money.

              And tell me please, did Russia supply all of the above weapons to the Karabakh Armed Forces, or did the Armed Forces of Armenia? And where did NATO members dismantle the equipment in Karabakh, Armenia or elsewhere? Maybe in Azerbaijan?

                And of course I heard about the option of export weapons smile
                And do you seriously think that conventional NATO members will ring about this at every corner?

                Already the Greek S-300, at one time, sucked so thoroughly ... and they began to write about it not so long ago, and in passing.

              Actually, there is a Russian base in Armenia ... Or rather, they sit there, go to the bathhouse, to the dining room, supposedly the military ... What means of intelligence do they have? None! And they must control the CSTO border and the controversial Karabakh in real time ... There is nothing of this, the Russian army does not know how to do this, there is no means, the backward army ... Ahead is only in such forums and in the Russian media ... Modern media intelligence, control and combat use for a tactical situation simply does not exist, the backward army is not ready for a modern war without nuclear weapons ... The armament is cool, and the information support is zero ... The stake is only on the heroism and self-sacrifice of the Russian soldier, but the generals even have an ass in the orders ...

        More recently, the USSR and then we significantly lagged behind the United States in the electronic warfare and electronic warfare systems.
        Take a look at the current situation. The Americans are at least slightly shocked.

        In general, we justify our main property - to slowly harness, but to rush quickly and dashingly.

        And further. Foreign market it is more pleasant in twins, but the main thing is that we have our own UAV for ourselves.

      Maybe the merchant will be happy with this news, and the military will ask themselves the question, "Either we have everything in order with saturation in the Armed Forces, or there is a possibility of mass production, not piece production." The previously announced news about three "kits" a year for the Russian Armed Forces is clearly not amusing.

      A rhetorical question. Maybe first saturate your armed forces with them? This, by the way, and
      part of the commercial success: complexes that have already been tested in business will enter the international market, and not a "raw" product, from which one can expect any unpleasant surprise that will lower the reputation of both the manufacturer and the product.

          The army is suffocating from the lack of Combat Information Systems (network-centric)! For which there is not even a concept ... Attack UAVs are just one type of weapon, and mainly in foreign territory .... Attack UAVs are used where there is no artillery, MLRS and missiles ... Moreover, an attack UAV needs preliminary information, and where take it? And in general, this is a weapon for fighting partisans who do not have air defense ...

            Did the Armenians really lack air defense? It was even present, and Azerbaijan used only certain elements of network-centric warfare. It would be interesting to know the statistics of target defeats by patrolling kamikazes and UAV missiles.
