    Here are exercises, so exercises - about 30000 fighters at a time! This is not a couple of hundred, including a horse, among the pro-Balts. And the anti-aircraft units of the Airborne Forces are armed with the latest Verba complexes.

      As soon as possible, "Strela-10", which in the photo was replaced by "Pine" for close cover of troops, it is "Pine" oh, how much more needed in the conditions of modern network-centric wars ...

    It’s bad that it’s not said what exactly they destroyed. They, like Armor, were promised a modification for the Airborne Forces, no?

    UAVs were probably generously offered from the neighboring border republic. As they say ... beat the strangers do not mind them ...

    That's the UAV chip: small, but they fly (and take good pictures of the earth)
    out of reach of conventional anti-aircraft guns. And not all radars see them. Therefore have
    spend quite large missiles on them.

    Landing works good ! Pulls his service yes since it is really necessary! Well, this is normal, it should be so! Landing !! These are the most combat and operational troops! They must always be in good combat condition !!! Hard! Sometimes it even happens recourse heavy! But, there is a need for this today yes !!!

    In reality, fighting with drones is really a problem. Spending Arrow on a cheap device or something even better is NOT FAVORABLE! You inflict damage on yourself ... in a material sense. But getting out of a cannon or machine gun is a whole problem. The truth is that now they plan to use a laser to fight UAVs in the west, and this is apparently the best way to combat it. The laser does not have to knock down the device, it is enough to DARK it. What about laser weapons in Russia, something gu-gu. Apparently they still did not understand the prospects of such weapons. We should start now, and then later it will be too late ...
