      they would be better off investing more money in careful training of operators, or they’ll cover the wedding, or just a house with a sleeping family ... it’s not the machine itself or the drone that kills, but the one who pulled the trigger or controller

      I wonder how much one such bomb will cost? I am sure the price will be at the level of our Caliber

        Right Even in the USSR, a translation article in “Abroad” about the wild margins of the American military-industrial complex somehow came across, there was a price for a hammer blow during the construction of a submarine - $ 120)))) Probably exaggerated, but not by much)))))

          Most likely downplayed. The wages there are very interesting, for example, if for some reason the robot trolley has deteriorated, for delivering parts from one workshop to another, the price for manual transportation (on the same trolley only operated by a person) can reach one hundred greens per meter of track . USA, it's a wonderland. In the literal and figurative sense.

        The key question. Even more, it is necessary to consider the entire system of such weapons. A small airplane controlled by satellite throws a small bomb at targets for which not weak masses of specialists worked. Such a financial impression, in order to slam a fly, they make a catapult for an elephant ....

        What a difference how many these bombs cost. You can use these bombs only against the Papuans. And this is equivalent to throwing supercars on cockroaches.

        The Russian "dome" system will explode these bombs even under the wings of a UAV. And this will be an act of humanity. Since it can send this UAV back to the customer.

      Slowly, the story of R. Sheckley's "Guardian Bird" is becoming a reality .. Yes, the goals are slightly different and the embodiment (so far) is not one to one .. but still ..

    In my view it looks like a mini-rocket, with a limited radius of defeat.

        The guy is already well done ... Yeshe wrote a couple of weeks ago in translate in Latin, now it’s pretty decent in Russian.

          I already wrote about this. Well, I do not believe that a person who knows Russian proverbs, sayings and all our allegories so well and can use them so skillfully in everyday speech can be a Dutchman (I am very ashamed - then I mixed up his flag with French) . And I assure you - this is not even a Negro. He writes too much in Russian. So - the project-entertainment of our Russian man, who is no longer a youth, and probably has a higher education. Whether I am not a liberal or not, I can’t judge. And if Negroes get to work for such a thing, then the work of the whole Russian-speaking department is needed. In FIG them such hemorrhoids?

    Extremely bad stuff, these bombs. If drones in packs begin to attack, not much will seem. There is an article on this subject in Popular Mechanics (No. 5, 2015).

      The PTABs were dumped in the Great Patriotic War on tanks, though in cassette, square, nothing, effectively ... The idea is the same, but at a different technological level ... Well forgotten old ...

    Since childhood, I was tormented by the question of the nuclear scientists of our genius, but they did not begin to shove the core into any aircraft ... maybe this is to abandon the mantra-science for the benefit of the WORLD? After all, we adhere to it and constantly ORYM — what are you doing? !!

      or car. For shooting field commanders of fighters.

          "in single excavators" ////

          A militant excavator is a more important target than a tank.
          What do shelters in rocky terrain, trenches or bunkers dig?
          A shovel will not work. And a hoe ... picking stones.
          So those who laugh at the destroyed excavator are bad
          imagine the realities of war in this area of ​​the world.

            Warrior Wow, somehow I had a better opinion of you. It seems that with the departure of the Professor, his duties were thrown to you. Please tell me, if these excavators are as important as the tanks, then there must be a sufficiently large number of them. Why are we only laughing at two destroyed units? Where is the army of destroyed excavators? Then bulldozers, tankers, and any convoy vehicle are just as important. Where are the destroyed trucks with dry rations? Today our president spoke about satellite imagery.

            Russian President Vladimir Putin at a briefing following the G20 summit said that funding for the Islamic State group (a terrorist organization officially banned in Russia) is provided by individuals from 40 countries, including a number of G20 countries.
            The head of state said that he shared with his G20 colleagues information on the channels for financing terrorism. “My colleagues and I discussed this issue. I hope that we will continue this work, which is extremely important for the fight against terror,” he said, reports Lenta.ru.
            The President also pointed out that it is necessary to prevent the illegal sale and receipt by terrorists of income from oil and oil products. "I also showed our colleagues images from outer space and from airplanes that clearly show what scale this illegal trade is gaining," Putin added.
            He described the images as follows: "The columns of refueling vehicles are stretched for tens of kilometers, so that from a height of 4-5 thousand meters they go beyond the horizon. It looks like an oil pipeline system."
            Are excavators more important?

    Against not having air defense "abreks", will be effective. In the end, why launch an expensive rocket or drop a powerful bomb when, to defeat the first person, a much less powerful b / h is enough. Anyway, drones are a REAL threat to enemy troops (miniature size, low altitude, meager cost, compared with an anti-aircraft missile, the same S-1, mass use, etc.) make UAVs a powerful weapon, and a small mass of missiles / bombs, for UAVs, dramatically increases the capabilities of shock unmanned aircraft (with a small mass of missiles, you can make an “shock” UAV from a “scout”).

    If the b / h will even weigh no more than 1 kilogram, but will hit the roof of the tower and / or MTO, then what is the most protected tank in the world, will it really not feel it? At 1,8 kg b / h, you can quite easily place a TANDEM charge of explosives, which, attacking the thinnest armor from above, will be able to flash armored vehicles through and through the roof to the bottom!

    Such ammunition is needed to reduce collateral damage. You can, for example, hit an armored car in a city without hitting others. This will reduce riots in the controlled territories.
