Russian Drone Crashed In Turkish-Occupied Areas In Northern Syria (Photos, Video)

Illustrative image.

On October 21, a Russian Orlan-10 drone crashed in the outskirts of the Turkish-occupied town of Turkmen Bareh in the northern countryside of Syria’s Aleppo.

The Turkish-backed Syrian National Army claimed that the drone was shot down by its fighters. However, the drone’s wreckage didn’t show any signs of missile or machine gun fire. This suggests that the drone crashed as a result of a technical failure, or even an electronic attack by the Turkish military.

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 second Russian Orlan-10 to be lost in Syria in October and the eights this year.

  • On February 6, an Orlan-10 drone crashed near the town of Ain Issa in the northern countryside of Raqqa. The drone was allegedly shot down by the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF).
  • On February 7, an Orlan-10 drone crashed in the al-Zawiya Mount in the southern countryside of Idlib. The drone was allegedly shot down by the al-Fateh al-Mubeen Operations Room.
  • On April 4, an Orlan-10 drone crashed near the town of Mashhad Ruhin in the northern countryside of Idlib. The drone allegedly crashed as a result of a technical failure.
  • On August 11, an Orlan-10 drone crashed near the town of al-Matmurah in the northern countryside of al-Hasakah. Both the SDF and Turkish-backed militants were blamed for the incident.
  • Also on August 11, an Orlan-10 drone crashed near the town of al-Ruwaihah in the southern countryside of Idlib. The drone was allegedly shot down by al-Qaeda-affiliated Hay’at Tahrir al-Sham.
  • On August 15, an Orlan-10 drone crashed in the Homs desert in the central region. ISIS claimed that the drone was shot down by its fighters.
  • On October 13, an Orlan-10 drone crashed near the town Marea in the northern countryside of Aleppo. The SNA claimed that the drone was shot down by its fighters.

Russian forces in Syria have been relying on drones to keep a close eye at the Turkish military and its proxies in the northern Aleppo countryside. Ankara’s forces are reportedly preparing to launch a military operation against Kurdish forces in the region.

Not bad with a service ceiling of 5000km, it must be a new record

Slow with a low service ceiling. An easy target for modern air defense systems, including man portable equipment.

The Russians are unlikely to risk losing high end gear to enemy forces in Syria.

Orlan-10 is an expendable drone with over 1000 built.
I think a missile for a air defense system is more expensive than Orlan-10

Agreed, part of the assymetric strategy at work.

its trash even according to weapons specialist from russia its not even worth to buy for their closest allies calling russia no serious drone power is what russian weapon experts do and they blame it on the lack of russian cooperation with iran in this field considering that iran is the first drone power in the world having used the drones in conflict since the war against saddam and having the largest amount of combat proven drones

Corrupt shithole of Ukropisstan

Russia has the best drones on the planet.
They had supersonic drones already in the 60s, when you wondered what soap and toilet paper are good for…

proud Ukrop "SS"

They have the best drones? Haha, they don’t have any functional UCAVs you idiot. They have Orion drone which was only tested in Syria. US and other countries have drones since early 2000s. Look at China – their drones are levels ahead of Russian drones.

Russian drones have terrible video quality compared to ALL western drones. Please name me some notable countries that have purchased russian drones. Ill wait, retard putin dick eater.

At the same time without Russian & Chinese support Iran would be a couple decades behind in ballistic missile technology.

You are an arrogant fool, imaging Iran as the center of the planet. Wake up clown.

its not a good strategy of russias and the drone isnt good either so russia has to start to get technology from iran and stop this self humiliation constantly with this trash drone they can take all those drones and upgrade them and make them less trashy they just have to do this seriously and cooperate it makes no sense when even the recon drones are trash and get downed in this kind of fashion

asyou see here declared by russian that russia has no serious technologies in this field which are successful be it in battlefield or in exercises the orlan constantly fails which is why it is constantly getting upgraded but that doesnt seem to fix it all because the approach from the very beggining seems to be wrong

Swap Russia with Ukraine and Iran and its legit.

farbat

russia should cooperate with iran on these drones for god sakes learn from those who are better just as we learn from russia in field of helicopters and fighter jets because russia is better in it as much as we are better than russia in drone tech do i have to repeat that iran is the first power in the world seriously using drones in war without its drones being basically paper planes and dropping as such all over the place

orlan is no different to a remote controlled tiny plane it has no superior materials or technologies in it shielding it from radar electronic warfare or other threats such as attempts of direct interception
