Russia improves Geranium accuracy and range by installing GLONASS modules

Iranian Shahed-136 drones, participating in the special operation under the Russian name "Geran", have proven themselves in the work to destroy the infrastructure of Ukraine. This development of the Persian military has many advantages. The simplicity of the design ensures the low cost of drones, while they effectively overcome enemy air defenses and are quite accurate in reaching targets.

The use of "Shaheds" in real combat conditions revealed some of the shortcomings of these UAVs. In particular, the inertial guidance system limits the effective radius of destruction to 200 km with a possible flight range of 2500 km. Therefore, inexpensive Geraniums hit targets near the line of contact. Expensive high-precision missiles are used to attack Lvov, Ivano-Frankivsk and other cities of Western Ukraine.

To increase the effective range of Geraniums, Russian specialists began equipping Persian UAVs with GLONASS navigation modules.

Ukrainian military expert Oleksandr Kovalenko expressed concern about the increase in the range of Shahids.

As you know, these drones have an inertial guidance system. However, GLONASS control units were fixed in the last downed devices. Thanks to this block, the accuracy of the Shahed-136 is greatly increased. Previously, the effective range of their use was approximately 170-200 km, now it has been significantly increased

    Moscow stubbornly denies the purchase of UAVs from Iran. Tehran, with no less tenacity, denies the luck of delivering UAVs to Russia. And only the "Reporter" knows everything.

      Nobody works for anyone. It's just an open secret. Everyone already knows everything. And only you are trying to deceive someone. It's not clear who. Probably himself.

        To thresh with your tongue is not to roll bags. Does religion prevent you from thinking why Moscow and Tehran deny these deliveries? Or do you have a head just to eat in it? Or are you from the sect of shakers with "test tubes of white powder" and adherents of Colin Powell?

          You don’t make public secrets of what was known to Western services even before the deliveries of Iranian UAVs to the Russian Federation. This is reminiscent of secrecy in the days of the USSR, when the citizens of the USSR knew nothing, and the enemies already knew everything, and as a result, the society of the USSR was completely illiterate on any military issue. For example: during the Second World War, Ass Pokryshkin shot down his first Su-2 light bomber. At the trial, he explained that he had not been introduced, and considered the unfamiliar aircraft to be enemy. Conversations on the sites are not a supporting document, therefore any truths and fictions are free from secrecy.

            We can, in principle, thresh anything. Here you are (though with some reservations) right. But an Internet resource that positions itself as the media still needs to filter the market. Moreover, referring to ukroiksperd as a source.

            The European Council explained the adoption of sanctions against Iran

            This happened, among other things, thanks to people like you, talkers and other blochers. It is high time to introduce censorship and bring at least serious administrative responsibility in the form of fines wrapping up the Wuhi for the dissemination of such information.

    Yeah, it’s not for nothing that our couple of satellites were urgently re-launched! The buzzers have become more poisonous good

    Glonas is good but? We must go further. We need a Geranium that hits moving objects from the beginning to a hundred and then higher. And also as a wish for experts. It would be nice to make a series of Geraniums with thermobaric filling. In my weak opinion, this can increase the variety of possibilities. Even so.

      Then with nuclear right away, there will definitely be more opportunities
