Drones will be transferred to South Korea


Similar "unmanned aviation military equipment in South Korea will be deployed for the first time, ”the publication notes.

The drones "Gray Needles", surpassing the combat capabilities of the drones that were used in Afghanistan and Iran, are scheduled to be delivered in July, at the latest, before the end of the year.

According to the newspaper, “equipped with night-vision cameras, UAVs can fly for up to 30 hours and are designed to monitor areas along the demilitarized zone separating the Republic of Korea and the DPRK.”

“With the help of new drones, the armed forces of the United States and South Korea will be able to strike at helicopters, as well as tanks enemy from a distance of about eight kilometers. For this, each aircraft is equipped with four Hellfire anti-tank missiles, four GBU-44 / B high-precision gliding bombs, and can also be equipped with Stinger missiles in the air-to-air version ”, - writes the edition with reference to an informed source.

The newspaper also notes that the drones "can be applied to ground targets using laser guidance with an accuracy of up to one meter."

The transfer to the peninsula of new weapons is carried out by the United States in response to the test of nuclear weaponsheld by Pyongyang on January 6.

      There is one more danger! The Americans have the "weakness" to bomb weddings and hospitals with their drones, or the operator simply shakes his hand and .... then South Korea may come full of Eun! So the war is near our borders, and the Anglo-Saxons for they rub their sweaty palms in a puddle with pleasure!

      It seems to me more than anything, and you won’t scare North Korea with these drones, they certainly haven’t new air defense, but they can certainly shoot down such an aircraft.

        I agree. I am not aware of the prices, but I think that the installation of electronic warfare systems competent for this task will be in any way cheaper than the S-300.

    How everything goes smoothly. First, South Korea, under the wing of the United States, intensifies the situation with joint exercises, the resumption of broadcasts on the GHS propaganda against the DPRK, etc. What pushes the DPRK to a statement about the testing of the hydrogen bomb. And now the American drone UAV in the territory of South Korea. It all happened by itself.

      And the adored on VO "great sun-like leader" Kim Jong-un periodically threatens to launch a nuclear missile into South Korea and Japan, which also pushes the South Koreans to strengthen their army.

          Kimy personally didn’t do anything bad to me, but they brought their country to hunger and poverty, forbidding everything that is possible. Just do not tell me that they have almost a paradise on earth. And for some reason, you can’t drive Juche fans into their DPRK, which they love.
          Are you ready to eat grass, abandon the Internet, transfer from a car to a bicycle?
          For the haters of South Korea, damned imperialists from this country are giving Russian citizens jobs at LG assembly plants in the Moscow Region, Samsung in Kaluga and Kaliningrad. They are going to mercilessly exploit Russian workers from Vladivostok:

    Who's next in line? Looks like Taiwan VS China. Or again they will remember about Kashmir and the Indo-Pakistani "friendship". And most importantly, no one wants to start a war somewhere far away from us, it would be possible to repeat the Texas-Mexican one again, or at least Alto Senep.

    Another pendos move to spread the means of delivery of “democracy.” Who doubted their “peace-loving” policy. They extinguish all the fights of internecine strife with quite * peaceful "fire-fighting means. Here’s the picture, well, a real" flying "fire-fighting balloon.

    They have dumb pennies.

    It's not a penny .. A penny they will find on such a thing .. only now Russia will not sell them the S-300. since they are subject to international sanctions because of these very nuclear tests, and Russia supports these sanctions ..

    In general, Americans play with fire .. If their drone even accidentally flies into the territory of North Korea, then the northerners will surely bring it down, and then the wreckage will be collected and studied and thus they will receive the new technologies they need .. And if God forbid, this drone will fly to the northerners and shelling something or bombing it, that’s already a legitimate reason for war, and Eun in case of war will not stop using his bomb .. As a result, it may turn out that a serious world war will flare up .. And as always provoked by the Americans ..

    You forgot to add that the "Great Sunlike Leader" is threatening to launch his nuclear missile ONLY IN RESPONSE to military aggression against his country ..

    That’s a completely different matter if the Americans through these UAVs try to provoke, they have bombed weddings, hospitals and schools for a long time justifying everything with some inconceivable failures and mistakes

    Laughter laughter, jokes jokes, but I read the article and for some reason thought about the movie "Terminator". As the machines are becoming smarter and smarter, and they have more and more combat capabilities. And tanks can burn, and helicopters, and it's so easy to bomb, for the soul ... It is scary to imagine that in fifteen or twenty years it will fly, crawl and swim ... And the idea of ​​"Skynet", which destroyed humanity for profit, is no longer seems so fantastic.

      In general, in these drones there is nothing clever. They are controlled by the operator, where and how much to beat - a person decides.

    there are also in a very large number of times twice as large as in Yugoslavia, and there are also S-125s also more than in Yugoslavia and there are S-200s with a firing range of 300 km which were not in Yugoslavia. There is also a truth in a small amount of a local analogue of the S-300 called KN-06 with a firing range of about 150km ..

    Don't tell. The operator there only receives intelligence information from the on-board systems and gives the command to use weapons. The flight is carried out in automatic mode under the control of the on-board computer. Of course, the operator in extreme cases can intervene and control the machine himself, but this is, so to speak, "optional". the main mode is programmed automatic mode. Something like this..
