Russia Tested Modern Target Acquisition System With Orion Combat Drones In Syria

Source: mk.ru

The advanced Strelets KRUS intelligence, control and communications system provided targets for the Orion combat drone during a recent successful test in Syria, an unnamed source in the Russian military-industrial complex told the RIA Novosti news agency on April 4.

According to the source, Orion combat drones struck terrorist targets which were located with the Strelets system. The source didn’t reveal when exactly the test took place.

“Compared to the use of manned warplanes, a significant increase in the efficiency and accuracy of airstrikes has been demonstrated thanks to the use of Strelets,” the source said.

The Strelets system allow forces on the ground to send target data to warplanes. In previous tests in Syria, the Strelets was used to provide targets for Su-24M fighter bombers. Nearly 100% accuracy was achieved.

Currently, the Strelets system transfers target data to drone operators. If future tests are successful, the system will be able to send targets directly to the drone, according to RIA Novosti’s source.

On July 3, a video showing Russian Special Forces calling in airstrikes on terrorist targets with the Strelets system in an unspecified part of Syria was released.

Russian Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu had revealed that the Strelets system will allow warplanes to hit targets near real-time, only 8-12 minutes after their detection.

The Orion combat drone was successfully tested in Syria before. The Strelets system will further improve efficiency and accuracy of the drone.

Sukhoi S-70 Okhotnik…

Zionist DIAPER HEADS

Hezbollah has managed to get the cell phone numbers of all Zionist IDF child killers and cowards and bombarding them text messages that they should stop killing Palestinians or will be killed themselves. This has set panic in Zionist ranks which are suffering from very low morale since the defeat in Gaza.

Many a ziodiaper will be filled…by “adults”.

can russia reproduce nano mono crystal material or does russia still use titanium?

Bobo Voxar

fans in their jet engines are monocrystalic alloys for decades… this is why chinesse cant copy their engines …

farbat

the russians got the rq 170 so they should be able to reverse engineer the materials aswell but iam actually unsure if russia didnt went for titanium as usual the russian hunter drone is a giant thing and it has complete unique role in future as basically a support drone for airwings

russias titanium usage still to this day is a waste it can use new materials with less of a cost i hope they do that

KnowTheJew

Russia has an advanced system for detecting the Jews’ US Tyranny occupiers and imposers of the Jews’ “Greater Israel.” Fixed it.
