Western experts do not believe in Russian UAVs

The future of Russian unmanned aerial vehicles (UAV) and uninhabited vehicles is not perfect. Such information is contained in a report published by the International Reliefs and Security Network.


Expert Mark Galeotti believes that there are serious doubts about Russia's financial and technical capabilities, which probably will not allow the implementation of this program.

“UAVs are not toys,” said Russian President Vladimir Putin. - We will not use them as other countries use. This is not a computer game. ” Maybe so, but Russia's desire to create powerful armed forces in the period of demographic problems may bring the development of UAVs and robotic military equipment closer. This idea reflects the enthusiasm expressed by various departments responsible for internal security during the deployment of such devices. At the same time, the future will show whether the budget and technological development of the country will be able to cope with this task.

Despite the fact that fears of an approaching demographic crisis are largely unfounded, Russia in the near future will obviously have to face a shortage of draftees. Attempts to solve problems that have arisen, including, due to the reduction of compulsory military service to one year, by increasing the number of young men called up, do not bring significant success. Despite the desire to increase the total number of contract servicemen for 50 thousand people per year - from 241 thousand in 2013 to 420 thousand in 2017 - it becomes clear that Russia will have to spend more time on this project: even in the past year, the contract recruitment plan was not implemented; it should be borne in mind that many of them refuse to renew the original three-year contract. In the future, in the conditions of a probable economic crisis, military service may become somewhat more attractive, however, under current conditions, the life of military personnel, the prestige of their profession and payment do not allow attracting the necessary number of citizens with appropriate skills.

As a result, according to experts, the military power of the Russian army is at about 82 percent of the required level. The obvious solution to the lack of personnel is a qualitative improvement in the armed forces. At the same time, a more general question arises whether a country can afford to maintain a million-strong army, which is considered vital by the leadership of the country. In this situation, the level of training of soldiers can be improved by creating a corps of professional sergeants (whose role in the Western armies is quite significant) and improving the skills of the officer corps, which, with due attention to it, can play a positive role, and in the absence of this attention, - have an extremely negative impact.

        We lag behind in their creation, it is a fact. But the possibility of creating, if not superior, then not inferior to the analogues of other UAVs is! Soon everyone will know everything as soon as they enter the series and begin to be used, and now let them stink, they don’t get anything else!

          In the USSR, the UAV "Buran" was launched into space and planted entirely on domestic components and software .. (with the humpback it was quickly written off as unpromising ..) And if we continued development ..? .. (they continued in Israel, and States) And we still have some secrets ... So they shouldn't giggle in the West ..

      And why not allow Russian children from South-Eastern Ukraine and Russian-speaking Ukrainians not to serve in the Russian army? There are many options, from granting citizenship to funds for buying a home in Ukraine, in order to keep the Russian core there? And so that it would not hurt the Russians directly, who were lucky to stay on the territory of Russia after the 1991, Russians from Ukraine, to give money for housing with a delay in years. Or is it better to call on Caucasians?

    Let's take it simplistically:
    1. How many people need to service the aircraft: pilot, mechanic, dispatcher.
    2. How many people need to service an unmanned vehicle: a pilot (although he sits on the ground), a mechanic, a dispatcher.
    There is no saving of human resources.

      I do not agree. in battle, there is a saving, because the pilot does not die with the machine. Then, the development trend of control systems is such that one operator will be able to manage a UAV group. So there is where to move.

      out of 1000 recruits .. for medical, psychological and intellectual indicators (professional suitability) how many people can you recruit as fighter pilots and UAV operators?
      I think that the difference will be - decimal, at least!
      and of those selected as pilots, how many will agree to risk their lives, and will not leave 5-6 years after graduating from civil aviation?
      or do you deny military-technical progress and future "inhuman" wars?

        Do not forget the thing like the pilot's life support during the flight. Oxygen, heating, for long-range aviation also (excuse me) a toilet with a kettle, and dashboards, and also a place for the pilot, restriction on overloads, etc. etc.
        And now take an unmanned aircraft ... every year the electronics become smaller, the speed increases, etc. etc.

        On the other hand, there is a chance to cover the control center of drones with one hit, but just go find it at a distance of 2000 km or even more, especially since this center is guarded no less than any headquarters and air cover there is for sure.

        Drones are definitely needed!

    The author retells old horror stories about Russia. The story of the creation of a corps of contract sergeants in our conditions did not take root and was abandoned long ago. The demographic problem is largely far-fetched, as is the need to maintain a million-strong army. But the question of lobbying the interests of one family, in the production of drones, has very negative consequences for the Russian Federation. It means that Mr. Poghosyan got involved in the production of heavy-class UAVs here too. If the Air Force and the President do not understand that this gentleman promises a lot, but in the end everything is not so good. "You cannot embrace the immensity." fool

    Yes, because it is no longer difficult to seize their control and nothing will prevent them from being sent in the opposite direction. This is yet another attempt to direct the amers into a costly channel. They (UAVs) are needed of course, but in the tasks strictly solved by them, and therefore there is no need to make a squadron meaning.

    As a result, the military power of the Russian army, according to experts, is at about 82 percent of the required level. The obvious solution to the shortage of personnel is a qualitative improvement in the armed forces. At the same time, the more general question arises whether the country can afford to maintain a millionth army, which is considered by the country's leadership as a vital necessity.

    Expert Mark Galeotti believes that there are serious doubts about Russia's financial and technical capabilities, which probably will not allow the implementation of this program.

    He and other respected experts also believe; into holy democracy, American exclusivity, same-sex marriage, game parades, and of course into the fact that Assad must leave. These people are strong in their faith. I think that when you see our shock drones above your wise heads, worthy gentlemen will still have time to assume that this is all a lie, a mirage and Putin’s propaganda.

      Communication is still insignificant, lack of workers at all levels. With the introduction of new technologies will come to naught.

    We lag behind - it depends on whom. From the USA and Israel - yes, probably. From the rest - no, it seems. And just experts have no idea, like us, what stage these works are at the same MiG.

    Well, in fairness, you cannot blame Western experts for bias.
    Nobody has ever seen these UAVs in us, but what is generally bought from the Israelis. Its UAV level radio-controlled aircraft with a motor and the latest news about them was about two years ago.

    Western experts do not believe in Russian UAVs

    And what about the Russians, on the contrary?

    I think ... there is faith on the side, if these "iksperty" were sure that Russia would not be able to create its own UAVs, then they would be silent in a rag, why rustle us reminding about the problem. The fact that the article immediately switched to conscripts and did not argue its "conclusions" in any way makes us think that this is a propaganda trick and that’s all a bunch of stuff into our nervous system. Minus the article, destroy the enemy! There is a commander! soldier laughing

    My colleagues, as a giraffe, have just realized that the US is constructing its UAVs for only one, but very important and objective reason - they will soon have no one to fly (as a result of avalanche breeding of gays and lesbians). We refused to deliver children to them, the others will soon refuse and then only drones. Russia is facing this problem, thank God it’s not.

      No. The main reason for this is mistrust of the authorities towards people: information leakage and insecurity in some cases. In the context of globalization and total electronic control, the authorities do not want to trust a person, because he can deploy a weapon and not everyone will want to execute criminal orders. In general, the authorities are preparing the technical and legislative framework before introducing full control over the person.
      Perversions are introduced not so much to reduce the population as to disorientate, disorganize, divide and divert attention and, of course, as an expendable material in the fight against humanity. After the readers were installed in electric vehicles in January 2013 for cashless payments and attempts to introduce UECs completely unnecessary from 2014 on, I realized that there was not much time left.

        Yes, and besides - no need to answer for the killed soldiers! There will be no protests against wars, since the soldiers will practically not die ... This is the "American dream"!

    Western experts probably don't know that we had a "Buran" or was there a komikadze on it?
    And as for personnel, maybe for this purpose they created scientific companies in the Armed Forces?

      Buran was the pinnacle in the structure of the UAV in those years, and even now many of the developments can be used for good.
      Imagine: load such a Buran with nuclear missiles (and there the bearing capacity was not bad as far as I remember), launch into orbit. He hangs out for a while, and at the right moment-bang-bang on the adversary.
      If I’m not mistaken, the USSR seriously considered this possibility, but then the act on the non-proliferation of weapons in space was signed ...

    We know these "experts" and "Sovietologists". The NATO military, in contrast to the kitchen experts, with a clever air giving comments on CNN, assess the situation more realistically. In any case, when dealing with the former. USMC military personnel have such an impression.
