During the NWO, a revolution took place in the use of artillery

The simplest quadrocopters manufactured in China, during the conduct of the NMD by Russia in Ukraine, made a real revolution in the use of artillery, both barrel and rocket, and mortars. This was written in the preface to his book "Alien wars - a new paradigm" by the ex-chief of the General Staff of the RF Armed Forces, General of the Army Yuri Baluyevsky.

According to the author, the use of cheap drones made it possible to solve the long-term problem of reconnaissance, target designation and adjustment of firing. Small quadrocopters hover over the desired combat area, which made it possible to accurately hit targets with conventional projectiles, including unguided rockets and mines, which is comparable to firing expensive precision-guided munitions. This made it possible to increase the effectiveness of artillery fire, reduce the number of guns and spent shells.

Boluevsky noted that what happened allowed traditional artillery to return again "to the pedestal of the god of war" in the sense that was characteristic of the two previous world wars. Many believe that miniature "quadrics" have become a real symbol of modernity, without which the use of artillery becomes ineffective and problematic.

The general also noted that the same can be said about the simplest aircraft-type drones. For example, about the Russian "Orlan-10", an additional advantage of which was the equipment with a gasoline engine instead of an electric motor, which significantly increases the duration of stay in the sky.

There is no doubt that the integration of UAVs with high-precision weapons has not yet exhausted the possibilities

- he summed up.

Recently, the Russian military department showed footage of the combat work of Orlan-10 crews during a special operation on Ukrainian territory.

    And how many of our fighters have these drones saved their lives? I hope the Defense Ministry will learn lessons from the SVO and correct all the shortcomings, and our military-industrial complex will increase the supply of drones of all levels to the armed forces of the Russian Federation

      The military-industrial complex will certainly increase if the Moscow Region moves and the State Order is formed. True, to issue an order, you need brains ...

    Yes. But this "revolution" was not made by us.
    "We" only wiped ourselves with blood more than once and, having learned that our industry and the Moscow Region are too busy with Armats, Su-57 squadrons and other "analogues", we sadly ran into aliexpress.
    Buy with your hard-earned minimum necessary for a modern war.

    And the general. Well, the general is fine. He receives a pension. Articles are published. About the fact that the earth is round, and copters are needed in the war. Although, if you think about it, for him it really looks like a discovery. And this really shows his "competence".

    And under the current system, no one will ever ask anyone for the absence of at least a couple of at least Chinese amateur copters in each department.

      So in Russia everything was fine, they sawed money, and allocated for UAVs, they shared and reported that everything was fine. So everywhere in the Russian Federation, and when a fried rooster pecked at the NWO, funerals began, the system did not speed up the "turns", did not start giving out what was needed, and there are no guilty ones either, because everyone is "smeared". When there is no personnel change for decades, any bureaucratic system degenerates and rots... Everything is natural...

    We need to radically increase our efforts to accelerate the launch of serial production of UAVs and loitering ammunition, as much has already been said about this, but there are no noticeable changes for the better yet, it may be time to change the leaders responsible for this, apparently not all of them are completely finished realize all the great importance and the urgent need for the speedy equipping of our army with these types of weapons.

    For the past 3 years, commentators on the Military Review website have literally screamed about the catastrophic shortage of UAVs in the Russian army. Six years have passed since the Russian military took part in the hostilities in Syria (October 2015). Everyone has already begun to forget about the Armenian-Azerbaijani conflict in Nagorno-Karabakh. And then General Baluevsky woke up. Right on Gogol N.V. - "Raise my eyelids!"

    In general, some "terrorists" (those who, according to Putin, gave up Crimea and planted a bomb with the right to self-determination) understood the promise of UAVs back in the 70s.
    In 1974, the Tu-141 made its first flight, and in 1979 was accepted into the army.
    Yes, the USSR already had its SERIAL jet UAV in 1979. It is clear that this is no match for modern devices, but nonetheless.
    And then ... further questions to Yeltsin, Putin and other "young and energetic" reformers.

    Yes, it would be necessary to drive such generals that 15 years ago they turned off all UAVs, and now they have seen the light, but ... you understand ....

    1. non-distracting accessible control of squad, platoon, company level copters.
    2. their integration into the interspecific system of troops
    3.Communication and control protection
    4. separate independent divisions of copters of special or universal purpose excluding the human factor

    I would not be in too much of a hurry to shout that another prodigy was found. And you can only bet on these plastic airplanes until you find a remedy against them. As soon as it appears, all these children's toys can be scrapped. Sobssno, the remedy is already there, only the war is very strange, not to say worse, we are having it. For starters, tell me the answer to one question - from which member is the supply of Western weapons still continuing? Why weren't all junction railway stations destroyed? Why is the whole Kuev still walking and drinking, while Skaklo has been shooting at Donetsk for 8 years? Why go out of their way to spare the infrastructure of the kakloof? You didn’t understand - when kaklo leaves, it will blow everything up anyway. All of you generals with big stars haven't figured this out yet?
