Defense Blog: Israeli kamikaze drone will catch the T-90 tank by surprise

Against the backdrop of the 17th International Aerospace Exhibition in Dubai (UAE), Israeli defense company UVision, known for its deadly unmanned systems, has unveiled a new artistic rendering of its HERO family of kamikaze drones, writes Defense Blog.

The promotional materials report the various capabilities of the drones, including the image of the Russian T-90S tank as a target for a kamikaze drone - an alleged Israeli loitering ammunition catches a Russian tank by surprise.

The T-90 is a third-generation Russian main battle tank that entered service in 1993. The tank is a modern version of the T-72B and includes many of the features inherent in the T-80U.

- the author specifies.

UVision CEO, retired Major General Avi Mizrahi said the family of drones was specifically designed to be launched from airborne vehicles. They have a low radar, acoustic, visual and thermal signature, and are also equipped with electronic equipment and a powerful warhead to destroy fortified targets.

HERO kamikaze drones can move at high speed and stay in the air for a long time. They are capable of detecting, tracking and hitting hidden or moving targets with great accuracy and can be used in any extended range attacking operations.

They provide the military with unique capabilities in the modern battlefield, providing tactical echelons with increased lethality and exceptional accuracy, minimizing sensor-to-gunner cycles and maintaining operational independence.

- stressed Mizrahi.

The head of the company added that the ammunition has already been tested in combat conditions by NATO countries and other UVision customers. He noted that the Abraham Treaty (an agreement on the normalization of relations between Israel and the UAE in 2020) opens up new opportunities for cooperation between UVision and Abu Dhabi, the media concluded.

We remind you that at the end of October in Russia there was seen a military echelon carrying T-72B tanks, on the towers of some of which protective structures were installed. After that, it was suggested that protective structures are intended, among other things, to resist air strikes.

    Oh Wei! Is it already possible to be afraid?
    Interestingly, what is the power of this wunderwafe transmitter?
    And if the connection with Moishe disappears?
    Well, let's suppose - the connection suddenly disappeared.
    And what? Missing wunderwaffle, useless?
    Not. I understand that Jews are rich people, they will not become impoverished.
    But the combat mission has not been completed?
    And the cartoon is beautiful. Even heroic.

      The conflict in Karabakh has shown that this is a fairly effective weapon. And we don't have that.

        Karabakh showed nothing.
        Two guys from the aul, taking their guns like cudgels, beat off each other.
        Village showdown.

        And we have the Kalashevsky Lancet.
        And it is not necessary to say that they are not ready yet.
        The Jews, too, do not stamp them like cartridges. There are not many such weapons, as they are expensive.

        And all the same, everyone has a question: the reliability of the connection.
        The drone flies until the connection is muted.

          You can argue as much as you like, but fact is fact. Azerbaijan captured or liberated Karabakh completely defeating the armed forces of Karabakh, there is no doubt that they would most likely grind the army of Armenia.
          But then Uncle Vova set up our helicopter and knocked down on the table for it Armenians and Azerbaijanis.
          So the victory was achieved largely thanks to drones and loitering ammunition. Without them, the suppression of air defense and artillery would be extremely difficult, and maybe even impossible for Azerbaijan. And that means they would not have succeeded.

            Two rams beat their foreheads.
            Whether there are drones there or not, it doesn't matter.
            It is there who decides who has a duller head and more crooked hands.
            No more no less.

              A drone is a tool. The one who has the best instrument and straight arms will do well. Or will you begin to argue here and say that "it does not matter"?

                In local showdowns of rams, this is really a tool.
                But against a serious army.
                These toys are greatly overpriced.
                No one has yet created a 100% reliable, interference-free connection. Or do you think that Turks are great electronics engineers?
                Or that the Jews pushed a cool communication channel into this wunderwaffe?

                The task of modern electronic warfare is to find other people's purities and drown them without touching our own.

                If you wish, it is not difficult to hammer all the purities with "white noise". And hello forties: telephones, dispatches, paper maps.

                Until an AI is invented that can independently navigate the terrain and recognize the enemy (and this is not always easy for humans), drones will be toys. In the "goof against sucker" or "big uncle against sucker" mode.

                That is why ours bother with all sorts of "markers" and machines on laser target designation and control (directional channel is more difficult to jam).
                That is why the "cornet" can be more effective than the "javelin" (there is too much interference in the field), and the "bassoon" is more effective than the "cornet" (it does not emit anything at all and is controlled by a wire, and the tank has a poor view and the radiation sensors are silent).

            Why are you silent that in Karabakh the Azerbaijani army fought with the Armenian militia, and not with the regular army of Armenia? Brotherly Turkey helped Azerbaijan and you fiddled with the militia for two months. And Aliyev has already said how much your army has lost equipment, its and Turkish brothers, or does not want to upset.

        You are absolutely right. And they would put your opponent in a tank, and ... let him say after that that “it doesn’t matter” After his meat smells like fried, then it’s worth starting a conversation. And so he will pretend to be an innocent deer

          I am not Armenian or Azerbaijani.
          Only the Russian army shines for me, but we have something to answer.

          I don't care much about what these smells there.

        We in Syria actively used such, I recently watched the film dock, they did not say the name of the drone, but it is very similar to the Lancet

    And why are gentlemen from the respectable public so excited, do any of them doubt that an Israeli kamikaze drone can destroy a Russian-made tank? So I can reassure everyone - these same drones are just as capable of destroying armored vehicles from other manufacturers.

      The manufacturer is not important. It is important: what methods of countering the enemy's means are available in a particular army, in a particular place.
      This projectile, by definition, cannot have a powerful communication channel (the size and price will not allow) and woe to those who do not have electronic warfare cover, but this also works in the opposite direction.
      The old principle of sword and shield.

    Exactly, exactly. He will hit him and turn into a rabbi with the Talmud in his hand. And some thought it was a beauty, or a frog. Everything done in Israel is not dying like the Eternal Jew.
