The German military department decided to speed up the process of acquiring special means to suppress drones - HP47, writes Der Spiegel.



The Bundeswehr prompted such a decision by a series of incidents with unknown drones seen over the country's military facilities. So, most recently, a similar drone was seen over the barracks of the German army and the building of the Ministry of Defense in Bonn. In Germany it is assumed that these Drones belong to Russia, which uses them for espionage, Der Spiegel notes. How they got there is not known.

It is expected that the Bundeswehr will purchase up to 80 so-called "jamming guns" of the HP47 type. It "weapon"will allow military personnel to suppress the communication, control and navigation channels of a reconnaissance drone and forcibly land it. To do this, it is necessary to send this “gun” to the drone, which with a special impulse will suppress communication with the operator and intercept it.

According to the publication, the military in Germany currently has a small number of HP47 devices, which are mainly involved in military operations abroad. The army will receive a new batch of "silencer guns" in March 2023.

According to Der Spiegel, unidentified drones were monitoring a military facility where Ukrainian soldiers are being trained. German military intelligence believes that it is the Russian special services who are spying on what is happening at these facilities.

Such suspicions can be called very strange, since it is not clear how a spy drone, and even a Russian one, flies freely in the center of Europe, in a NATO country.

      Any military drone has algorithms for returning to certain coordinates in case of loss of the control signal.
      And after Iran landed an American drone, interfering with GPS, military drones also began to supply inertial navigators that do not depend on an external signal. True, such inertia is not on every drone model.

      Funds for fighting drones are needed, but why bring the "Russian threat" under this, and even so luridly
      was seen above the barracks of the German army and the building of the Ministry of Defense in Bonn. Germany suggests these drones belong to Russia
      Well, if Russian drones fly freely over the German Ministry of Defense, then we need not means of combating them, but psychiatrists. Urgently call Dr. Sosnovsky.

      Refugees from Ukraine, using their last euros, instead of food and accommodation, instead of looking for work and the job itself, buy drones with cameras. They make beautiful photos and videos. They post on their social media. The country that hosted them is advertised. What a wonderful scenery and landscape in Germany. And the Germans again something, but not so.
