On April 4, a Russian Orlan-10 drone crashed in the northern countryside of Syria’s Idlib, a few kilometers away from the Turkish border.

Opposition sources said the drone crashed near the town of Mashhad Ruhin. The drone was not targeted. It reportedly crashed as a result of a technical failure. The wreckage was recovered by the militants.

The Orlan-10 has a flight duration of 16 hours and a range of 140 km. The drone can be equipped with several types of sensors to carry out different missions including reconnaissance, 3D-mapping, electronic warfare and communication relay.

This was the third confirmed loss of a Russian drone in the northwestern Syrian region of Greater Idlib where a number of terrorist groups are active.

  • On February 7, an Orlan-10 drone crashed in the al-Zawiya Mount in the southern part of Greater Idlib.
  • On March 10, a Forpost drone crashed near the town of Tal Adeh in the northern part of the region.

Russian forces keep a close eye at the different terrorist groups in Greater Idlib to collect intelligence and prevent any attacks. Drones are the go-to platform for reconnaissance.
