quote: The Russians have been using drone swarms against the Ukrainians to good effect (blowing up ammo dumps). Here's one being used against a Russian base on the coast of Syria.
Those who claim the Russians are not knowledgeable of modern technology need read this and also recall the Iranians "Landing" one of our high end drones.
quote: Six small-size air targets were intercepted and taken under control by the Russian EW units. Three of them were landed on the controlled area outside the base, and another three UAVs exploded as they touched the ground.
Launching the drones from 30+ miles out is quite an operation.
quote: It was the first time when terrorists applied a massed drone aircraft attack launched at a range of more than 50 km using modern GPS guidance system.
Drones could be very useful for both offense and defense (surveillance) uses. There are a lot of 'off the shelf' components for many parts of the drone package. Food for thought.
