Russia is armed with the best loitering ammunition


Russian silent loitering ammunition "Cube" was demonstrated at the IDEX 2021 arms exhibition in Abu Dhabi. It is reported that the development of the ZALA AERO company will be more mobile and more accurate than its counterpart Lazeta from the Kalashnikov concern.


Unlike aircraft-type strike UAVs, which hit targets with missiles and bombs, drones like the Lancet and Cuba are themselves a projectile. Such a loitering ammunition is capable of being in the air for a long time, and then, at the right time, dive into a potential target.

Earlier, the Kalashnikov concern presented its version of the kamikaze drone called the Lancet. It is reported that the ZALA AERO "Cube", which is completing tests this year, will receive a wider range of attack profiles, as well as better noiselessness.

So, the new loitering ammunition will be able to attack a target both from low altitudes with an approach 3-5 meters above ground level, and sheer dive from 4,5 km on its own or external guidance.

A 15-kg projectile with a 3 kg warhead has a hidden launch using a catapult. According to the developer, the maximum deviation from the target is about 2 m, which speaks of the drone's almost "sniper" accuracy.

Unlike Western models, the domestic loitering ammunition has a high level of radio invisibility, which means that it is impossible to detect its attack without expensive and actively emitting electronic equipment. At the same time, the "Cube" is extremely easy to use and much cheaper than its counterparts, for which The Washington Post has already called it a revolution in the world of weapons, comparing it with the legendary Kalashnikov assault rifle.

    This means that the Kalashnikov concern simply needs to urgently modify and significantly improve the characteristics of its Lancet in order not to yield the market to competitors from ZALA AERO with a more advanced Cube.

    In the video itself, they show mainly American and Israeli ammunition, and they show that they are better in all respects than the advertised product.

      So this is natural - there is no advertised product yet and it is not clear when it will be, and the Americans and the Israelis have been successfully using loitering ammunition for many years, have gained considerable experience in their production and use. However, not very gifted figures of the Russian agitprop still say that non-existent products from Russia are superior to foreign counterparts. And this is ridiculous. laughing

        It got to the point that VK is developing analogues of American ammunition that would be launched from a launch container, and not from a catapult.

        Yeah, at this training ground "Pantsiri" have already been tested. But the result was not so very positive ...

          well, yes, well, yes, of course, only your Dome can wassat - yes, those Armor that were ruled by the Arabs suffered an unenviable fate, but not so long ago an authoritative American publication published an article where it was written that the percentage of Bayraktarrv's success against the Armor was, to put it mildly, not in favor of the former. Well, then not a single stool was able to reach the Khmeimim airbase.

            authoritative American publication

            - just an ordinary blogger, whose opinion is very controversial.

            So the Khmeimim base has never been attacked by a single decent drone, some pioneering cardboard crafts. laughing

                Why is this happening? The answer is simple - because all any more or less adequate personalities from among the enemies of the Jewish state who have more or less decent means of attack are simply afraid of a retaliatory strike, realizing that this strike will be fatal for them, only a bunch of outrageous terrorists who have nothing to lose, possessing only with primitive homemade products does he decide to attack Israel, only the result of these attacks is extremely insignificant ...
