US Drones: Most Feared weαpσn Against Russiαn Army In Ukrαine
Russiα is facing an army of drones in Ukrαine – an army that has been impossible to defeat as they continue to destroy the longest line of Russiαn tanks whether directly as in the case of loitering munitions also known as Kamikaze drones, or indirectly by fixed-wing and rotary drones.
In this video, we’ll look at the main drones that are giving Russiα something to worry about in the war with Ukrαine – starting with the rotary drones.
An unmanned combat aerial vehicle (UCAV), also known as a combat drone, colloquially shortened as drone or battlefield UAV, is an unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) that is used for intelligence, surveillance, target acquisition, and reconnaissance and carries aircraft ordnance such as missiles, ATGMs, and/or bombs in hardpoints for drone strikes.
These drones are usually under real-time human control, with varying levels of autonomy. Unlike unmanned surveillance and reconnaissance aerial vehicles, UCAVs are used for both drone strikes and battlefield intelligence.
Aircraft of this type have no onboard human pilot. As the operator runs the vehicle from a remote terminal, equipment necessary for a human pilot is not needed, resulting in a lower weight and a smaller size than a manned aircraft. Many countries have operational domestic UCAVs, and many more have imported armed drones or are in the process of developing them.
