only motor is europe no europe country habe opertional drone so all components are israeli
Drone bought and paid for by Russia and made in Russia... so all components are Russian.
Israel spent enormous fortune developing drone technology, Russia bought that technology... much quicker and easier and cheaper (even though they were old and very expensive) than developing them completely themselves.
Russia continues to use them because they continue to be useful.
They spent a lot of money to buy... Israel did not give them for free, so it makes sense to get the best value for money out of them.
It is like lend lease in WWII... the US sent thousands of trucks to the Soviets... so why would the Soviets waste money building their own trucks when they are getting some sent to them. Instead it made more sense to use the extra production capacity to make tanks that were rather better than anything the US could send and just use the US made trucks... it is not that they could not make trucks.
do you have any opertional drone?
no when you will have then talk
Don't be a dick they have dozens in service... they even film their parades and exercises with the damn things these days.
Even the guy on the Zvezda channel that makes programmes about Russian military equipment uses UAVs for aerial camera shots.
How would these fair against non-static targets? It will be useful against critical infrastructure, but in the information age , with capabilities such as sensor fusions and battlefield management systems, real time intelligence is needed in order to paint a proper picture of the battle.
Traditionally it is not the Russian Armys business... deep strike missions are the role of the Air Force or Navy depending on where they might be.
The design of UAS and subsystems such as payloads are based on mission requirements. What the air force lacks is a persistent ISTAR platform with an endurance of over 24hrs. It will always be much more efficient for a platform that is conducting surveillance of a target to be able to strike if the need be.
You do realise that if you send four aircraft each able to operate for 6 hour periods you can also get 24 hour coverage... efficiency is amusing... how much has Americas campaign in Iraq cost it... or Afghanistan... compare with the cost to Russia in Syria and you tell be about efficiency then.
JSTARS and UCAVs are really nice but horrendously expensive... and horrendously vulnerable to even a light jet fighter or decent SAM system.
They seem to have shown the ability to put special forces on the front line of a conflict and call in air strikes against various fixed and mobile targets when needed... using guided missiles and also cheap old model aircraft using upgraded avionics and cheap dumb bombs.
I realise having a multi million dollar UCAV with a multi million dollar weapons package is more efficient in terms of time, but some times you need to check the target properly, so a slow kill that is terrorists is rather better than a fast kill that might or might not be terrorists.
Of course when your perspective is skewed it does not really matter... the US does not give a fuck who it kills, but when retaliation down the track is applied it is too dumb to learn the lesson... or it will blame Russian hackers.
Case in point... Kosovo... led directly to Georgia invading South Ossetia, which led to massive funding and restructuring of the Russian military... who would have thought...
