Russian troops in the special military operation zone in Ukraine have begun to receive a new small drone dubbed “Binokl” with reconnaissance and combat capabilities, TASS reported on January 3.
Dmitry Zubarev, a spokesman for Binokl manufacturer Syomka s vozdukha, told the Russian news agency that the new drone is two to three times cheaper than commercially-available Chinese-made DJI Mavic drones which are widely used by Russian troops.
The Binokl, which was first presented during the Aeronet 2035 exhibition in Moscow in November, can be equipped with a compact thermal imager for reconnaissance and has a grenade-dropping capability. This allows the small drone to detect and attack personnel and equipment along the frontline.
“The deliveries of these Binokl drones have begun. These drones can operate both day and night and the contracts have already been signed. There are few of our devices there [in the special military operation zone] but their number is gradually increasing,” Zubarev told TASS.
The spokesman said that several dozen Binokl drones have been already delivered to Russian troops in the special military operation zone in Ukraine.
Russia ramped up the production and development of drones after the start of the special military operation. Russian-made reconnaissance and combat as well as loitering munitions have been playing a key role in the battle against Kiev forces.

Russia struggling to hold back Ukrainians paper tiger. embarrassing especially for the so-called world second strongest military. Cope drones won’t save you
All the fighting is on territory that used to belong to the failed Ukrainian CIA project prior to the US coup in 2014, so who is holding back who, derpster?
2012-2013 the failed Russian-Ukraine puppet that lost the revolution. Yet you call this Ukraine government of the present failed, yet it stands ageist Russia… Russian puppet of Ukraine in 2012 lost not Zelensky Ukraine still stands stronger lol
Just remember the Russian military went in with a small small fraction of its fighting force. It holds back from devastating strikes. If Russia wanted to, it had the conventional arsenal to level Ukraine in a matter of days should it choose to pursue such a route.
Yeah, I remember Russian failed 3-day assault. If Russia wanted to, they would have levelled ukraine but pootin choosing to throw men into the meat Grinda for his Sovit imperial ambitions lol. Ukraine stands strong together do Russians ?
Yes, their big mistake. They could have ended the war within a week if they had sent 2 or 3 times more troops. Ukrainians where panicking when Russian troops where near Kiev, and where ready to sign almost anything to avoid total capitulation. But then Russian “out of good will” retreated, and immediately Ukrainians said – great, no more talks, we will fight… Similar thing happened in Bosnia and Hercegovina in the 90s. Republika Srpska Army penetrated close to the Sarajevo (capital of Bosnians) and where ready to capture it and end the war. But imbecile politicians where negotiating with the west and ordered the army to retreat, and the war lasted for 5 years with 100.000 casualties on all sides.
LOL Moron, the VRS would have never and could never have taken Sarajevo. What a moron you are. The only reason why the war lasted so long was that the VRS had all the weapons : artillery, tanks and aviation and the Army of Bosnia Herzegovina had nothing. In the end as the playing field was being levelled in 1995, those pussies from the VRS started running like little whores they are.
See why they call you razor, as sharp as granny’s tooth. All the weapons on one side so war lasted longer….
Yes but this is what happens when you are guided by the FAILED ideology of Pan Slavism thinking that Ukrainians are their “brothers”
You heard Putin’s New Year’s speech. Russia will be in FULL WAR MODE during 2023.
How is starting a war THEN getting into war mode!? What were they doing, intelligence and such, since 2004!? Russia is a failed state. Not so failed like USA, China or the diformity that is EU but failed nonetheless.
They should have that BEFORE going into the military operation, special or not. The teams should have been trained and practice working with them, being molded for the needs on the field etc. Too many good Russian lads lost because of Russian high command indolence.
Yes you should have said that BEFORE the military operation maybe Putin would have listened
Good guys! Hit and destroy!
Have this drones also the ability to comunicate direct with troops on the ground?
Those used to assist tank operations now do that. So it is a matter of time until unmanned armored vehicles will form an integrated system with drones of all kinds, on multiple levels of protection.
The only problem is using humans as cannon fodder is easier and much cheaper. As poverty increases, more desperate idiots will risk health (lives and livelyhoods already destroyed) for the wargames of the few.
After the Geran song http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=INHAp2uut1M with the 80ies vibes , we will need a fresh Binokl song with some 90ies rhythms, who is ready to make one, may it be in English as well
Fully unmaned total warfare will have 2000s vibes?
why not? sounds cool
btw from the makers of the Geran song: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dpNIOVczfqo
Very soon, Ukraine will be bombing Moscow daily with air raid sirens blaring at night.
you on the pipe again digger?
Well, it is the new year’s festivities after all.
well, whatever, his dope is based
Until then, this is just a dream of drugged up Ukronazis.
just like pootin 3 days war and the 3rd army
Yeas, the Azov air command had said that they are receiving three squadrons of Messerschmitt Me 262 for this purpose.
Por las dimensiones que tiene sería perfecto para introducirlo en el ano de selenski y detonarlo
Very well! Ha ha ha ha ha!!!!!
No images of the device? Disappointing.
I told 1 week after 22 of february 2022 (as my well respected Pamfil Military Academy) that russians to achieve success over the phenomenally strong 8 year ukroshit defences MUST have recon drones on every SQUAD in the army. I mean not platoon, but SQUAD. Browse comments back and you will see that. And also that would have saved countless russian lives. Somebody MUST to pay for that lack of vision. But it’s not too late. Saturating the khohol bandera nazi garbage with at least 10 such drones/ kilometer will halve the russian casualties, which is a tremendous achievement. That means 15.000 drones.
