    "conducting air battles at different heights during the day and at night" And how often are exercises of this nature held there? Or have recent events prompted this kind of teaching? One thing is clear, the situation around Karabakh is being whipped up from the outside ...

    Look, every time the use of a UAV is interpreted as a great achievement of our army, Such primitism just turns back. It seems, you see, there is even a UAV, what more, read and rejoice, The wretchedness of most authors writing about UAVs is simply immeasurable. It's worse when such wretchedness is observed in the Army. Here UAVs fly in Syria, what else do you need ... UAVs are not only have to fly and shoot movies, they must issue information to determine the coordinates of the target to special control centers that direct weapons systems, planes or helicopters at these targets immediately, not in an hour, not in 10 minutes, but immediately in real time. such systems were in Syria, the war there has long ended ... Now from history. Back in 2012, the Taman brigade (not the tractor) tested the ESU TZ using the Orlan-10 UAV as an information link to target weapons systems ... It seems that we have everything, but in fact there is nothing. There are no test results, the ESU TK system and the like, where have they gone? Due to the lack of such systems, our army cannot fight in a modern way, cannot win in Syria .. Why did this question arise? I answer. New MLRS systems "Tornado", "SV Coalition" are sharpened for ESU TK, there are channels for receiving information. But there is no information. Why, then, such systems, why do they increase the radius of destruction. But the ESU TZ should integrate Mi-28, Ka-52 helicopters, Su-34, T-50 aircraft and other types of weapons and reconnaissance means ... a lot: from space and ending with UAVs. So if there are no systems like ESU TK, our modern army is a complete bummer. Now everyone understands what situation we are in ... What successes can we talk about? What does the General Staff think, Shoigu? Probably by chance they did not notice, such a trifle that the army entrusted to them does not know how to fight in the modern way.
