Russia seems to have begun to actively use shock Orions in Syria


Not far from the Syrian city of Al-Bab, unidentified unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) attacked pro-Turkish combat units in forces under their control in the Tarhin region. Apparently, the Russian Aerospace Forces initiated active use in the SAR of their first attack UAVs "Orion".


According to earlier statements by representatives of the pro-Turkish forces, the Russians have begun to use Orion strike drones in Syria. Thus, with targeted drone strikes on fuel trucks, the Russians are effectively blocking the smuggling of Syrian oil into Turkey.

Strike style - no casualties, strike time - night time and aircraft camouflage. The newest attack UAV "Orion" is working in the sky

- write local media.

The first Orion prototype was built in 2015. In December 2019, the head of the Russian defense department, Sergei Shoigu, noted that the UAV was first used in Syria - in previous years, the device was tested there in an unarmed configuration.

The takeoff weight of the Orion is 1 kg, the combat load is 200 kg, the range of the attack drone reaches 250 km (as a translator UAV - about 300 km). The Russian UAV can stay in flight for up to 24 hours, flying at a cruising speed of 120 km / h at an altitude of up to 7500 m.

      Well, as if "local media" is not the ultimate truth smile That way, by style, they famously determine the authorship of the air strike, but what, in practice, somewhere, has already managed to get to know and study it well with it, the Orion style?

        well, I mean, if everything said in the article is true, then ... and then my comment :)

        I just omitted the first part.

        In general, what "Orion style" means is, in principle, not entirely clear to me. And it is still not clear how it is possible to strike and destroy vehicles "without casualties."

          Well, it is written the same:

          strike time - night time

    “Even though it's still pretty ghostly; but ... but ... but the shifts in this direction are already quite tangible ... - many thanks to Erdogan for this ... - Though he spurred Russia very strongly in this regard ... - Otherwise it would have been so .. . - as 15 years ago ... - "development is underway; will go into service; air defense and aerospace forces will soon be equipped .." - and so on ... and so on ...

          What you portrayed is a sentence, that is, a complete thought.
          If you had a desire to be ironic, then you had to:

          Seem to be ...

          Apparently ...

          But, in this case, you are wrong again. There is no word "similar" in the post. And no "apparently".
          There is only "apparently". And you don't have to give commands like "look for them there." Not matured yet.

                        It is not clear where you have it. In principle, it is not possible everywhere and in the same way. In the Russian Federation, something like that in its own way. This topic is very big.
                        In the Russian Federation, in my opinion, there are several sources that are neutral, this is the OTR TV channel and all business channels. What central channel do not take everywhere there is something like "60 minutes" where exactly you get what and how to think.

    Not far from the Syrian city of Al-Bab, unidentified unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) attacked pro-Turkish combat units in forces under their control in the Tarhin region.

      In fact of the matter. No photo, no video and who, what and how much. But the people are being led.
      It is clear that work on UAVs is being carried out in the Russian Federation and there are already developments. Samples need to be tested somewhere. But the lag of the Russian Federation in this area is also obvious. But it is also obvious that this lag will be reduced over time.
      There is a fundamental problem in Russia, this is mass production. Only for their own needs and that is a lot difficult.
      You cannot have more than one weapon than all potential opponents combined.

        We have weapons that can instantly neutralize any enemy superiority in conventional weapons.
        The military doctrine of the Russian Federation clearly states that it will be unambiguously applied in the event of hostilities unfavorably developing for us.

        In terms of mass production, we traditionally keep the second place after the United States in the export of weapons.
