    It seems one guy survived.

    A close up of the targets that remained standing would likely show quite a few holes...

    Flight tests of reconnaissance and strike UAVs of a new generation will begin in 2021

    MOSCOW, December 30. / TASS /. Russian reconnaissance and strike unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) will enter flight tests in 2021. This was announced by the Deputy Minister of Defense of the Russian Federation Alexei Krivoruchko in an interview with the Krasnaya Zvezda newspaper .

    According to the Deputy Minister, the Ministry of Defense attaches great importance to the development of large-size attack drones. The already existing Altius, Pacer and Outpost complexes are primarily equipped with guided weapons. Their testing in real conditions with the use of small-sized homing ammunition has shown high efficiency.

    "On their basis, enterprises are currently developing reconnaissance and strike complexes of a new generation, equipped with weapons of destruction and satellite communications," Krivoruchko said, explaining that "these machines will go to flight tests in 2021."

    In the future, the Deputy Minister specified, it is planned to mass produce such drones and supply them to the troops. Equipping Russian troops with them will begin in 2021.

    "By the end of 2021, complexes with long-range and long-range multifunctional drones will be supplied to equip the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation," Krivoruchko said, explaining that they will be armed with both guided aviation weapons used on tactical aviation aircraft and specialized ones. ammunition.

    "Their use will make it possible to deliver pinpoint strikes not only at stationary, but also at mobile targets of the enemy," the deputy minister stressed.

    On December 21, Russian Defense Minister General of the Army Sergei Shoigu at the final board of the military department said that the first modern complexes with medium-range reconnaissance and strike drones "Pacer" and "Forpost" began to enter the Russian troops.

    Production of ammunition for UAVs
    The creation of Russian small-sized ammunition for attack drones is almost complete, their prototypes are being tested in the troops, and mass production will begin next year, Krivoruchko said.

    "The development of small-sized guided bombs and missiles is nearing completion, prototypes of which are already being tested in the troops; they will also go into production from next year," he said.

    On Monday, the appearance of the first Russian reconnaissance and strike drone "Orion" (ROC "Paceman") became known, a calendar containing, among other things, an image of the new drone, was published on the website of the military department.

    A line of small-sized ammunition for drones was presented in August at the Army-2020 forum.

    Why hasn't russia created an equivalent of the reaper drone yet? It could've repurposed a turboprop engine for it years ago. Drones shouldn't take so long to develop since they're basically simple slow propellor driven aircraft that are just remotely controlled.

    BTW the USA has retired the predator while russia is putting its predator equivalent into service.

    They didn't need them.

    US used their drone to kill random people under the pretext they were terrorist when in fact they never really know who they attack. 1 million killed in Iraq. I doubt any organization had 1 million terrorists.

    Russia builds them now when they saw the good results against conventionnal forces that can be well IDed.

    If drones are so easy to make then why don't every country make their own?

    Which British or French or German drone does what a reaper does?

    Murderbots have not be a very high priority, but now they are getting them expect US rhetoric to change and suddenly international rules will be needed to make sure Russia can't get away with what the west has been getting away with using theirs.
