On November 1, the state-run news agency TASS reported that the Orion has started arriving for experimental combat duty in Russia’s Aerospace Forces after its tests with armaments in Syria.

“The Orion drone in its attack configuration can carry up to four missiles, which it successfully test-fired in Syria. The drone has started arriving for Russian troops for its operational evaluation, after which the command will make a decision on launching it into serial production and accepting it for service,” TASS quoted its source as saying.

As Editor-in-Chief of the Arsenal of the Fatherland journal Viktor Murakhovsky explained to TASS, the drone Orion “was in Syria in its reconnaissance and attack configuration.” “It was there; moreover, there were more than one of them there and for quite a long time but I can’t say whether it [the drone] delivered strikes,” Murakhovsky specified.

The Orion is a medium altitude, long endurance drone. It has a maximum takeoff weight of 1 tonne and a maximum payload of 200 kg. The drone has a service ceiling of 7.5 km and its maximum flight duration with the standard payload is 24 hours. The drone can develop a speed of up 200 km/h.
