The DPR presented a budget analogue of the UAV "Lancet"

Deputy Head of the Russian Guard for the DPR, Alexander Khodakovsky, presented a budget version of the Lancet kamikaze drone. The brigade commander published photos of the product in his personal telegram channel. According to him, the presented model is already a working prototype.

By design, this is an analogue of the Lancet, only it should cost ten times less and be produced in circulation, an order of magnitude larger. Some may not like it, but this is our goal. This is what our efforts and your help are aimed at. It's not the most competitive concept, but it has proven itself quite well. The purpose of the project is clear, and it has nothing to do with making a profit, as you understand

Alexander Khodakovsky emphasized.

The DPR presented a budget analogue of the UAV "Lancet"

It should be noted that the loitering ammunition "Lancet" in just a few months has become one of the symbols of a special military operation. With their help, fighters of Russian units hit armored vehicles and artillery systems of the Armed Forces of Ukraine.

It was the "Lancets" that played one of the main roles in repelling the counteroffensive of the Ukrainian army in the Zaporozhye region. Military casualty account equipment, which the Armed Forces of Ukraine suffered as a result of the use of these weapons, amounts to hundreds of units.

The words of Vladimir Putin about the need to increase the production of these UAVs in Russia can be considered a real triumph of the Lancet. The head of state made the corresponding statement during a meeting with the head of Rostec, Sergei Chemezov.

    Judging by the photo, he also has fins that fold into the stowed position. Although target monitoring is clearly more primitive. But with a decrease in cost by orders of magnitude - this can be put up with. And maybe. and learn to manage it, leveling this shortcoming. Well done guys.

    The Lancet is a successful kamikaze drone. It is understandable, made professionally, led by an experienced model aircraft designer, and its main feature is a very noise-resistant communication and control channel. But excuse me, there is a war going on, not a NVO, although in our higher offices, crests, it seems, are still OUR. Therefore, the transfer and replication of the drone control system is quite reasonable - why not share it ?!

    The main thing is that this kamikaze drone be as effective and combat-ready as the Lancet, otherwise what is the use of it, even if it is several orders of magnitude cheaper.

      It became effective after about six months of use ...
      And before that, out of three, one hit the target, judging by all the videos of the initial period ...
      If Khodakovsky is not lying, then such things need to be put into operation ...
      Though I don't believe him...

    It's great that there is such an alternative. And then the Lancet seems to be worth like a "horse" for its price

    cette version économique traitera les chars et infanteries ennemis tandis que le lancet transportera une ogive spéciale pour effacer des regroupements ou des grandes bases.

    Some people may not like it,

    These “someone” killed Prigozhin. This “enthusiast” will also be killed.
