“You have it, who does it?”: Journalist Andrey Medvedev commented on the statement of the head of the FSMTC that “we have” the best drones


Recently, there has been talk in Russia about the acquisition of unmanned aircraft from foreign states for further use in the zone of the NMD in Ukraine. Answering questions, the head of the Federal Service for Military-Technical Cooperation (FSVTS), Dmitry Shugaev, told media representatives that the topic of UAVs is not a problem for Russia.


We have no problem with drones. We have the best drones

- said the functionary.

Shugaev's words were commented and criticized in his Telegram channel by journalist Andrei Medvedev.

The head of the FSMTC, comrade Shugaev, is certainly right. Russia has no problem with drones, perhaps because they simply don't exist in sufficient numbers. Many UAVs exist in a single copy, and all their functionality is to roam from exhibition to exhibition. So how can they, problems arise, if the item is missing?

– wrote the journalist.

Medvedev noted that he personally has no problems either, for example, with cattle, since he does not breed (cultivate) them.

Well, as for the fact that “we have the best” drones, everything is also right. I just want to clarify - and you, who has it?

He asked.

The journalist suggested that Shugaev's phrase could, of course, be taken out of context or misinterpreted. However, if he said so and he was understood correctly, and everything is correct with the context, then the official probably knows something that is unknown to the rest.

But here I immediately want to see our analogue (better even superior in performance), for example, MQ-9A Reaper

summed up the journalist.

      G. Gref Putin V.V. calls a bastard for embezzling funds from the accounts of pensioners in the savings. Interestingly, however, it turns out.

    Some Orlans 10 and 30 in the troops are about 2 thousand. Mass purchases began to be carried out relatively recently, apparently awaiting the results of testing the methods of application in Syria, but the scale of the latest contracts has seriously increased and the equipment has been brought to completion. Artillerymen use and boast of the results. And Reapers, as they are understood in the states in the form of heavy shock drones, most likely will not exist at all. In the presence of air defense systems, heavy drones were not effective. Turkish disable in batches. Orion occupies a middle position, but even its work is not yet visible. It must be understood that drones are not a miracle weapon and you should not focus on it. The Russian Federation even has satellites, if someone is from Ukraine and not in the subject.

      After six months "with a tail" of a special operation, does the enemy still have active air defense, because of which the VKS cannot operate in the operational depth of the enemy's territory?
      Aviation, OTRK, cannot suppress it?

      So maybe the task of destroying air defense should be assigned to attack UAVs and kamikaze drones with which, according to bureaucrats, "there are no problems fellow "?

        To do this, you need to destroy NATO surveillance equipment.

          Why so immediately - "destroy" ...
          Why not just neutralize?
          Neutralize by engaging "the most modern, unparalleled electronic warfare / electronic warfare systems "

          After all, do they exist in Russia?

          If YES, then why are they not used, if NO, then why did all of us central TV channels hang noodles about them
          super-duper features???

          Or was it fantasy and I didn't get it?

      The Russian Federation even has satellites

      Even belay ? From the successor state of the USSR, the country that launched the first Sputnik and the first man into space?
      Of course, I will not deny the presence of individual satellites, which still do not become a grouping, but by no means should they provide information to the unit about the current picture of the battle and support the infantry during the assault, for example, a fortified area.

      But in the recent Azerbaijani-Armenian conflict, the "bad Bayraktars", "hanging" over the battlefield, not only provided information to the attacking unit in real time, but also hit the identified centers of resistance.

      The "Eagles" you described, and even more so the satellite - can they do that?

    This functionary, I think, is not the only one. Now time is pressing their tail. Therefore, they have to lie in a "patriotic" impulse. Otherwise, they will leave the position and lose the margin from its use. So you remember Comrade Stalin here, who for such ... immediately put up against the wall. Therefore, under him, such a difficult war was won.

    I understand that a journalist knows more than someone who is in this field.? It happens. especially when you really want to get famous.

      But even in the forces of the Russian Federation involved in the operation, the picture is also not much rosier.

      Volunteers are carrying everything that the units of the RF Armed Forces need - surveillance equipment, sights, PBBs, armor, UAVs, walkie-talkies, and the like ...
      Providing troops, categorically insufficient ...

      The whole rotten system works - everything suits everyone, because the bureaucrats sit well and get fat kickbacks, so what are the problems, they will say into the microphone that everything is very good and beautiful, - a beautiful marquise .... Here are just thousands of killed fighters because of such criminal deeds, and there is no one to accuse ... In many ways, G. Zyuganov is right, but he has neither the desire nor the strength, because in 1996 he won the presidential election, but refused to accept power. Here is such a compote in the Russian Federation ..

        If he did so, then he sacrificed his conscience.

          Of course it would be cool. I needed a panacea - I rummaged in my pockets - here it is, very close, where it has always been - the Communist Party. You don't have to go anywhere. Take and use. Like a pill.

    Because of such functionaries in the army and in the army itself, we do not have modern strike UAVs and we are forced to purchase them in Iran, an Arab country that has been under sanctions for 30 years, as well as in China. It remains to wait until the blacks in Africa begin to make them, so that they still beg.
