Russian fighters learned how to respond to attacks from UAV drones

Russian servicemen quickly got used to not only the tactics of attacking the militants of the Armed Forces of Ukraine from reconnaissance drones, but also learned how to respond to similar attacks from Ukrainian drones.

The choice of adequate behavior here is not great - either try to throw away the grenades dropped from the UAV, hoping that they will not explode ahead of time, or hastily retreat from the position being hit. The British edition of The Sun published a selection of footage showing Ukrainian drones throwing ammunition at Russian fighters. There is a lightning-fast reaction of soldiers to a threat from the air - while VOGs and grenades work, the military is already finding a new shelter.



The low quality of the manufacturing of the combat filling for reconnaissance drones is also noticeable - a large delay in detonation or the failure of the fuse at all. However, it is still better to hope not for the marriage of enemy products and for the speed of reaction, but for the availability of regular means for the destruction of small-sized drones.

Perhaps there is a need to restore the sighting units that existed in the Soviet army. They were equipped with laser devices for optoelectronic countermeasures and were capable of incapacitating enemy surveillance devices.

      A typical article from the category: "learned to resist, it's okay", yeah. Only now the drones throw wogs at single fighters and no one shoots them down, that is, they feel at ease on the front line and there are enough of them to chase single fighters. Moreover, some videos show a clear finishing off of wounded soldiers and there is a video where drones accurately throw grenades right into the open hatches of armored vehicles. But the sect of witnesses of the "Mighty" Khibiny "and the cowardly" Cook ", who had been raging here before, was broadcasting with all voices about the almighty means of electronic warfare of the "second army of the world", which, like an "umbrella", would cover their troops and not allow enemy drones to fly over the field combat and in general - they will "clog" all the control and guidance channels of the enemy. Well, how, I would like to ask - where is this "almighty electronic warfare"? Where is the "umbrella", then?

                It needs to be clarified. When shooting at a hovering drone, at a height of 50 m, at an angle of 45 degrees with an AK-74, the probability of hitting is about 75% with a consumption of 2 magazines, at a height of 100 m, the probability of hitting is about 40%, if higher than 150 meters, the probability of hitting is somewhere around 25 %. That would be roughly appreciated.
                Noticing a drone in time is, of course, another problem.

                      And with these drones, the main problem is detection.
                      Air defense systems are not advanced to the front flank, otherwise they will be easily destroyed, artillery and MLRS cannot be intercepted.

            with a collimator sight, the drone is clearly visible at 500 meters. But the most effective tool against drones is modern electronic warfare. Which, unfortunately, turned out to be not up to par and in insufficient quantity. And our vaunted air defense can do little with small-sized UAVs. The video taken from the Polish drone shows how it hangs over our TOR, but it seems that he simply does not see him and does not even try to shoot him down, trying to hide in the forest belt. But you can't hide from the thermal imager. Small-caliber 30-57 mm guns are needed, like those of the Tunguska, shell, derivation with a remote fuse of the projectile. Yes, and mobile laser systems with a power of 30-50 kW would be very useful. Peresvet was created. What prevents to make combat lasers to fight drones.

              In the forest, you can hide from the infrared sensor, because the foliage and branches. But only in summer.
              And you can shoot down with a 6-barreled machine gun. and for detection, of course, either optical or infrared or radio detection (the drone emits radio waves) devices are needed.
              And you can shoot down from GSHG-7.62, because 4 barrels at 500 meters shoot without problems and the fire density of 5000-6000 per minute allows you to hit.

      If 40-50 pellets go to a goose in a shot charge, then at least a couple of pellets will hit, but here only one bullet goes. Somehow I shot down two geese from the combo, one with a shotgun, and the second with a rifled one, but that was only once. I think the drone is a difficult target, but feasible. If you put the tracer through one, then it will be clearer which amendment to take. winked

          Well, a commercial drone will really "stun" such a gun, then it depends on the mind of the programmers what it will do in this case - fold the handles and flop / land or wait for the end of the interference or go home at the coordinates (do not drown out the gps from below).
          But a drone with military communications equipment definitely cannot be jammed, because there are many channels, instant random restructuring or even work in pseudo-noise mode across the entire spectrum, and this is not even taking into account the likelihood of a satellite channel, which cannot be jammed from the ground either (this is true for heavy drones, this cannot be loaded on the mavic format).

              The radiation pattern of a classic compact microstrip phased antenna gps in the sector 135-225 gives up to -20 dB (and this is only in the antenna, not taking into account the electronic formation of RP according to the satellite almanac, which can give up to -90 dB for interference), this requires a lot of kilowatts, to reduce SN to obscene values.
              An electronic warfare system placed on a truck chassis will cope, but from a wearable gun - not a fact.
              Yes, and it’s not the GPS that jams the guns, but the control channels, it’s much easier, because the antenna pattern of these channels is usually displayed on the horizon and down.

        Is not a fact. The height is not higher than 20-30 meters, otherwise you will not aim and the direction from you is vertically upwards. The fighter, however, is looking down at this time.

          REX 1 is an innovative development of the Kalashnikov Concern. Its main task is to prevent an intruder drone from entering a protected facility. Outwardly, the device looks like a machine gun, but it does not shoot bullets.

          A suppression unit is built into the weapon, which jams the signals of American satellite navigation GPS, Russian GLONASS, Chinese BeiDou and European Galileo within a radius of five kilometers. Also, the device is capable of blocking GSM, 3G, LTE signals at a distance of a kilometer and interfering at frequencies of 900 Mhz, 2,4 GHz, 5,2 - 5,8 GHz. Thus, REX 1 disables the drone, but does not physically damage it - the aircraft loses contact with the remote control and lands smoothly.

          To put the device on alert, just press one button. The weapon is equipped with a mounting system, so that it can additionally install sights, lights, target designators, as well as objective control devices.

          The weight of REX 1 is 4,2 kg, while the model has a built-in battery that ensures continuous operation of the device for 3 hours.

            How about this answer? REX-1, made by the Kalashnikov concern.

        It is obvious that the issue is complex, organizational and technical at the tactical level and not only for ground forces.
        In fact, in the organizational part, this is a set of measures for the constant monitoring of the air with the appointment of observers in a subunit (squad - platoon), setting up air observation posts (platoon - company, battery) and organizing warnings about the threat of an air attack, even in areas that do not have a permanent the danger of an attack by an air enemy, the development and implementation of refined methods of engineering equipment for positions, including the configuration of structures, the camouflage and adaptation of suitable local objects and other features when located on the ground, the exclusion of unnecessary movements of personnel and equipment, the elimination of unmasking signs of the location and actions of troops , actions to evade a typical air attack in various types of troop actions and situations.
        And when solving a technical issue - equipping troops with specialized means of reconnaissance, guidance and destruction (neutralization) of low-flying, low-speed and small-sized vehicles for arming existing units (let's say individual devices, group weapons and reconnaissance equipment) - then this is probably the organization of direct defense from an attack by an air enemy on their own with the organization of emergency crews or their strengthening with the introduction of additional regular positions. I suppose this is already some level of military air defense and, of course, full inclusion in the warning and command and control system. A fashionable and vital word is network centric.
        In my opinion, it is quite likely to expect the emergence of new small-sized UAVs with the possibility of retrofitting with firearms, multiply charged or packaged, more maneuverable and accurate, dangerous to manpower and light equipment when operating at low altitudes and difficult to hit even at typical flight speeds.

      Forgive me, of course, but this is a disgrace! Do not have adequate means of combating drones. And all because whoever it depends on does not sit in the trenches under the blows of these same drones. However, nothing new.

      Sorry. Do not tell me by chance, but who is not shameful then? Isn't it the world's number 1 super-equipped army that retreated from Afghanistan, because it never found an effective way to deal with partisan light infantry on Chinese deshman mopeds?

      It’s a disgrace to slip for 9 months for an army claiming second place and announcing a potential confrontation with the NATO army, but I think that the Americans would have little use against such drones in this situation, they also suffered losses from such drones in Afghanistan .

    Looking through similar "vidos" more than once, you involuntarily "remember" the 7-shot "MANPADS" "Kolos"! Add an optoelectronic sighting device with a laser rangefinder ... (And at worst, it will do! wink ) ... a rocket engine using new fuel (that is, more powerful ...) with greater range and altitude ... non-contact or programmable fuse ... yes, wouldn't such a "wafer" fit ?! what And how do you like a salvo of 7 ammunition at a distance of up to 2 km? Yes, with armor-piercing up to 10 mm!? You can use cumulative fragmentation (cumulative) active-reactive grenades ...

        An anti-grenade net is a specific thing, you need to know exactly the properties to protect a particular object. Usually used for stationary or long-term objects. For some ammunition, including the frequently encountered RGS, an "air" explosion is possible, which is dangerous in view of its characteristics. And, here to jump out of the affected shelter, if there is time, mesh barriers can interfere.

    One thing I don’t understand is where all our military analysts and strategists in the General Staff were looking, because such UAVs are simply a killer thing, especially if they are equipped with programmable detonation grenades with striking elements directed downwards, since there are no overloads, no high speeds, with 150- 200 meters, such low-noise and small-sized UAVs are difficult to notice from the ground, it is difficult to hit with conventional small arms.
    And if there are still with thermal imagers and work at night, this is generally a “terrible” weapon, stupidly like a shooting in a shooting range.
    Moreover, the Armed Forces of Ukraine have been using such UAVs for 3-4 years already, and I remember how at first it was perceived with irony, and now these drones have a higher performance than a combat helicopter.

      And if you look one step ahead, then our drones should have already been flying over the trenches - fighter drones. Before the events, this caused ironic smiles, now they hide their faces, everything has nothing to do with it, they nod at each other.

    I read proposals for protection against drones, there is, in my opinion, one more remedy. By the way, it already exists. Possibly expensive. Optical blinding. Designed to combat snipers, and reconnaissance of optical observation devices. In the fleet, special glare lights are installed on the BDK to blind the enemy during the landing.
    Those. use devices for blinding drones. A powerful light flux will possibly disable the camera matrix. And a glare lamp will simply clog the video channel for the operator.

      It is doubtful that the camera certainly cannot be disabled in this way, it needs a powerful laser, and you can get rid of glare simply by using a software method. Maybe 10 years ago this would have worked. And in general, there is no point, because if he was discovered, then he had already dropped a mine and after that became useless, i.e. it is necessary to prevent the very appearance of the drone near the positions.

      in fact, the laser, like the glare lantern, unmasks positions. The grid above the parapet is also a good guide.
      It is strange that these RGDs are not dropped from a fixed height - then they would have torn without reaching the ground. Apparently, these mavics do not have an altimeter. Although the scale of the image can be navigated.
      You can fight them only by finding them. This is the main problem.
      You can't do without a radio direction finder. One hope for anti-drone guns. Do they have a review screen? If not, then they are of little use.

    In my opinion, the best protection against such dropped grenades is a mesh (film) and shelter.
    Detecting a drone strictly overhead should also not be technically difficult. The cheapest solution (after observers) is a sensitive microphone with sound analysis software, then a millimeter radar.

        In fact, detecting a drone with modern means is not a problem. For a long time there have been small-sized radars and optoelectronic scanners that detect and select any even very small drones. Moreover, these tools are really small-sized and fit perfectly into the trenches with the extension of the imaging devices. Another thing is that these are all prototypes and I have not heard that something like this was massively supplied to the troops. There is only one reason - the relative high cost and the impossibility of mass production due to the small number of enterprises that developed these devices and their lack of production capacity ..

    You need to hide if the drone is spinning. Remember some movie, where they hid in a haystack and moved around the field carrying this haystack. Now they sell such tents for animals, there are on Ali, they are called: a tent for small animals. They are made of lightweight fabric, when assembled, 22x22x2 cm. Inside, a plate keeps its shape, like a military cap. Easily unfolds and folds quickly. Under it, you will not see how a person moves his arms and legs, and you can even move around in it. It is 120x38 cm. From 6 parts of 60 cm, sitting, you can even stretch your legs. And you can throw it away, quickly leave this place. If sewn from waterproof fabric, then it will cover from snow and rain. And a children's play tent, in the same place on Ali, it is also easy to roll up. And if there are a lot of people in one place, then just keep an awning over you, if in a trench, then strengthen the awning at the top of the trench. Yes, and there is also a plastic that can even withstand a shot, it is used for glasses glasses and is called polycarbonate in construction, it is very cheap.

    A network of the thinnest thread but strong. Approximately 20 by 20 m square. Network over location. 4 helium balloons in the corners. When a drone appears, the balls lift the net and tangle the propellers. If the target is gone, then you can return the balls back. In the Second World War, the air defense air defense system worked this way.

    most likely the musicians, the most trained contingent in the war, learned to run back. and even then at the peak of combat readiness during the execution of tasks. constantly on the alert and they will not be able to be.

    I watched the video and came up with a simple idea - to use a small anti-fragmentation shield. When the FOG falls, either put the shield between themselves and the grenade, or, taking into account the fact that some fighters manage to crawl away 2-3 m, and run even further, then it is quite possible to take cover behind the shield without moving heavy protection.

    Most likely, the same Shilka should be finalized with automatic observation and guidance systems. They that, after that, the drone will not be demolished? Of course, if the projectile is with a remote fuse, then the issue will be minimized. It is unlikely that you will have to run from drones.
