The first case of a German-made drone being used against a Russian region has been recorded.

The drone shot down in the sky over the Bryansk region turned out to be drone-Vector transformer, manufactured by the German company Quantum systems. This is the first recorded attack on Russian territory with German assistance. drone. The drone was shot down in the Novozybkovsky district of the Bryansk region.

These UAVs are made of reinforced carbon fiber material, which increases their resistance to various weather conditions. At the same time, they are able to fly silently and broadcast high-definition video to the operator via an encrypted data transmission channel.



In addition, Vector is able to transform into a lighter version of Scorpion in a few seconds, thus becoming less visible and faster. According to the manufacturer, the training of the operator of such a drone takes about four days.

Vector is a fixed-wing reconnaissance drone. It is capable of taking off and landing vertically. The UAV can stay in the air for 120 minutes, while moving at speeds up to 72 km/h. Vector is controlled using a ground station and a special tablet. Due to the fact that the drone has a foldable design, it can be transported by folding it into a special backpack.

In August, the German authorities handed over to the militants of the Kyiv regime a small batch of these drones manufactured by Quantum systems, paying for the delivery from federal government funds. This is the first time a German-made drone has been used against a Russian region. Previously, Germany announced that it was supplying Kyiv with weapon and equipment not for use against Russian territories (within the borders before March 2014). Kyiv used German weapons against the Bryansk region, in fact, spitting on the obligations that, as claimed in Berlin, the Ukrainian authorities assumed in terms of the use of supplies from Germany.

    The author, he himself is not “capable of transformingto be", and the operator can assemble either a VTOL or a tricopter

        Four arrived in Energodar today. One was shot down and fell into the building opposite the cultural center. I don’t know about the fate of the others.
        This happened 15 minutes before our arrival in the DK area.

          Calling the flight of a reconnaissance drone an “attack on Russian territory” is more like an attempt to fussily and painfully whine to respected German partners that their respected Ukrainian partners are not using the supplied military assistance as promised. On the Internet, this is called the word “cringe”. Or facepalm.

          So soon it will turn out that Russia has two allies - krinzh and facepalm.

    Well, Taurus will fly there too. If the missile strikes are massive and deep into Russia, then there are several options for how to respond to this, but all ultimately lead to nuclear escalation.

    Kyiv used German weapons against the Bryansk region, practically not giving a damn about the obligations that, as Berlin claimed, the Ukrainian authorities had assumed in terms of using supplies from Germany.

    Where to laugh?
    Tell me at least one fulfilled obligation of a clown from the U countries (Veselchak U? what ), in relation to Russia? Throw after throw, there is absolutely no one to negotiate with, deceiver upon deceiver. Oh, that's different. feel

        Ukraine lost a long time ago. In any sense. It exhausted its resources back in 22. And having accepted “help” she lost completely, in the broad sense. Economy, demography, etc. So our problems are not with Kiev. The problem is being solved on a global scale.

      Should the USSR have regarded the use of Western or Chinese weapons against the SA as an attack by NATO or China? Did the United States need planes shot down by missile systems from the USSR as an attack on them by the USSR? If so, why didn’t we immediately slide into World War 3? And our Foreign Ministry constantly issues protests. The world is suddenly not only black and white, but mostly gray.

      flight time 120 minutes, speed 72 km/h
      if the Germans launched it from Germany, then most likely every two hours it connected to a flying power bank, and the operator with a tablet in the ground station was flying somewhere behind wassat

    All these countries that supply weapons to the Saloreik, which are used to kill Russian citizens, should be severely punished by Russia after its victory. But these are all dreams. Russia will win, but the lunatics in power will not punish anyone, but on the contrary, they themselves will put themselves in front of them hi

      How to punish that? What are your suggestions? For example, when the USSR won, it allowed the Finns to “rebound” almost painlessly. We will generally remain silent about the countries of Eastern Europe that entered the Warsaw Pact and took part on the side of Germany. Otherwise, you might think that you “stuck up” in front of them. It's all about long-term benefit. And not emotional: punish!

        The USSR just took over the richest Finnish nickel mines of Pestamo (now our Norilsk Nickel is there), built a naval base just 30 km from their capital, took huge reparations and forced to legalize the Finnish Communist Party and put the leaders of Finland on trial (R. Ryti, V. Tanner, etc.) !

            It was very difficult for them economically, and they suffered a lot of shame, but they preserved the independence of their country and still managed to avoid the imposition of a Soviet-style regime (which Germany’s allies such as Hungary or Romania could not avoid).

      How do you imagine this?
      How can we punish all 30 NATO member countries, since almost all of them are now helping Ukraine?

      Or, for example, the Turks supply the Ukrainians with Bayraktars and other weapons.
      That means now, while the SVO is underway, we are partners with them, we are building nuclear power plants for them, selling gas, our weapons like the S-400, but after the end of the SVO - wow, we will show them, remember everything and punish them cruelly!

    The Germans are disciplined, what’s their problem. They’ll say, slaughter the last body, they’ll slaughter them. They’re digging a hole for themselves, without looking back. An owner of a large logistics company I know merged the business in 15 and went to his place in Bavaria, the order has come. So we stand on ceremony with them There’s no need at all. People without a soul and without a conscience. The Amer’s noose will weaken, they will crawl back as if nothing had happened.. Is it worth having something in common with such spineless people?

      This is our problem too.
      If the authorities tell us that the Turks are enemies, we will hate them together.
      And then the Turks will say that they are partners - let’s forget everything, let’s trade and be friends.
      They will tell us to fight - and we will go to fight.
      And tomorrow they will suddenly say that we need to make peace - we’ll make peace right away.

    Of course she lost. It’s not Ukrainian troops that are now attacking the Russian defense line, right? And it’s not Ukrainian drones that fly to Moscow City to explode there? Now imagine something like this before February '22.
    So if Ukraine lost, then Russia has so far lost even more, significantly worsening its security, wasting a huge amount of resources and not achieving any of its goals.

    We're ahead, you bastards! I have several sketches of similar “transformers”... one “platform”, but by adding and subtracting “bells and whistles” you can get both a quadcopter and an aircraft-type drone (DST, “dust” wink ) as many as two or three varieties! There is also a “transformer”, on the basis of which you can not only get a quadcopter or DST, but also change the body (fuselage) “like gloves”! (the body is even flat, rectangular in cross-section, even square in cross-section... even trapezoidal or hexagonal...! Moreover, it can even be made from cardboard and plywood... and dropped after "shooting" aircraft ammunition. Essentially, these are containers...) I wanted Contact volunteer organizations involved in the production of drones at home... share ideas!
