The US Army is looking for an "antidote" for Russian kamikaze drones operating in Ukraine

The successful use of loitering munitions by the Russian Armed Forces during a special military operation has led the US Army to look for an "antidote" against Russian kamikaze drones operating in Ukraine. She expects that she will be helped in this by the ideas that representatives of the local defense industry will have in the very near future.

According to the American magazine Defense News, this topic was discussed at a briefing during the annual conference of the United States Army Association in Washington.

Colonel Mike Parent, head of procurement and resources for the Army's Joint Directorate of Unmanned Aerial Vehicles, said the threat of loitering munitions was of great concern to him.

A one-sided attack is what is evolving. Therefore, we must develop along with it.

- he said.

According to him, the service he leads will be ready within a week or two to send a formal request to the industry in order to create technology to combat the drones of a potential enemy. The work will focus on countering Group 3 drones, that is, a class of small UAVs that weigh between 25 and 600 kilograms.

Today, in the Telegram channel "Operation Z. Russian Spring military commissars" there was information about the MiG-29 fighter of the Ukrainian Air Force that fell near Vinnitsa. This happened when he tried to shoot down the Geran-2 kamikaze drone of the Russian Armed Forces.

    The Israeli intelligence services have been transmitting intelligence to Ukraine since May, and now this process has reached a new level. Ukraine receives intelligence information about Iranian drones, and an Israeli company sends intelligence satellite images to Ukraine - The New York Times.

      Now many in our country are rethinking the "history of centuries of persecution" of the Jewish people, and this rethinking is not in favor of interpreting this history from the point of view of the Jews.

        Hmmm...! At school age, he was very fond of reading science fiction and historical books ... So ... in historical books "constantly", there were Jewish moneylenders ... greedy, cunning, stingy, shameless and ruthless! At the same time, an association appeared: I read, I hear "usurer" - it seems to be a Jew ... I hear a Jew - it seems to be a greedy usurer ...

      I said earlier that everything and everyone should be cut down in Ukraine now, then NATO will find the keys to the drones, put up air defense, and our guys will die because of this kindness.

      Intelligence level - quantity and proposed nomenclature.
      Ukrainians can rather sell/exchange information about Shahids and especially about Mujaher for Spikes/Air Defense. Because there's more here. Israel does not have the whole Mujaher, while Ukraine has it along with the TSA.


      This Israeli company is called ISI. And she will even give you pictures if you pay for them. And yes, these are far from the best available systems. They still have old satellites.


      The only way to disable Shahid is to physically destroy him. No radiation, exposure, GPS suppression will work there (because the GPS autopilot + duplicated INS). The only way to reliably disable the Mujaher is to physically destroy it. For when the connection is lost, it works according to the established algorithm (loitering in the area, flight task with shooting the terrain on the on-board drive - if there is no connection for X time = flight home / to the specified site in the flight task).

    A wedge is being knocked out with a wedge, this has been known for 1000 years, however, the United States was not yet in the projects. Hence and fool crap.

      If this is true, then apparently the Ukrainian pilot decided to go further and either sank to the height of the drone and touched the tops of the trees with his wing, or decided to take the drone to ram at the cost of his life and aircraft.
      The experiment to find an "antidote" was recognized by the Anglo-Saxons as unsuccessful. negative

    Well, what is the antidote for such drones? Only saturation of missile defense, it is unlikely that they will come up with something else)

      Air defense in the style of the second world. That is, MZA (Volcanoes, 35 mm Europeans are different) - for each object. In general, it is quite doable, even trailed light ones are enough - which a pickup truck carries like a trailer - there are a lot of them (modernized hundreds, old ones without FLIR - thousands).


      Also MANPADS / Avengers / analogues. Based on the statements of the Americans, the Avengers will probably go in the coming weeks (this is the only air defense that can be quickly mastered and massively given), and these parameters were declared by Austin-Milli.


      On the other hand, to create a good defense zone against UAVs, a lot of people and installations will be required. Even conditional 100 Volcanoes and 100 Avengers will not make the weather, well, they will allow covering 1-2 suffering cities and part of the thermal power plant.

    As I understand it, Ukraine cannot do this on its own without outside help. And what can she do without the help of NATO? NATO weapons and instructors, Anglo-Saxon intelligence, information support - the entire West. Only consumables remain Ukrainian - soldiers.

    . As a rule, weapons, shock and opposing them, develop in parallel ways. Percussion, as a rule, are ahead.

    I think that Iranian primitive drones are not very scary for a high-tech army. And their use against Nata will not have a strong effect. They are good against such Papuans as skakuans. It’s bad that we don’t have any drones in the required mass quantities. Thanks to the Iranians for flying mopeds.

    fallen MiG-29 fighter of the Ukrainian Air Force near Vinnytsia. This happened when he tried to shoot down the kamikaze drone "Geran-2"
    Don't panic! Well, I fell, I also fell on the rink. And you shouldn’t have butted heads with the drone, it doesn’t have brains, which means there can’t be a concussion, but the pilot can. "I saw a drone, give way!" Write dill in flight instructions, I give it for free (that is, dag)

    Does this remind me of something? And, I remembered, they wrote the same before the NWO, that drones do not work against the Russian army, that everyone will be lying on the ground destroyed by electronic warfare

      Against a swarm of not so primitive Iranian drones, no high-tech army will help. If all of her "high ..." is bragging and contempt supposedly for a wild enemy.

    There is nothing to yawn, more drones need to be released. And immediately run to ukroHunte. Let stupid people shoot down planes. or wave the pitchfork.

      You have to fight back with a slipper. Also, allow dill to go to the toilet without taking off your pants.

    I hope that our Ministry of Regroupings and Goodwill Gestures is also looking for a way to deal with such systems, since Ukraine was also supplied with Switchblade 300 and Switchblade 600, very dangerous devices
