Russian TV Report Shows Recent Loitering Munitions Strikes In Syria, Combat Drones Tests

Source: mk.ru

On December 19, the Russia-24 TV aired a report documenting recent loitering munition strikes in Syria as well as combat drones tests.

The loitering munition strikes shown in the report all targeted militants of al-Qaeda-affiliated Hay’at Tahrir al-Sham (HTS) and its allies in the northwestern Syrian region of Greater Idlib. Lancet-1 and 3 loitering munitions, which were developed by the ZALA Aero Group, were used.

One of the strikes killed a prominent tank-hunter Maher Kojak, also known as “Maher Tow” for his experience in using US-made TOW anti-tank guided missiles.

The report also included footage of a recent test in which a Kronshtadt Orion combat drone shot down an aerial target with a new copy of the world-renowned Kornet-D missile system dubbed X-BPLA.

In two other recent tests, a Forpost-R drone dropped a KAB-20 light-weight guided bomb and a MDP-03 combat helicopter drone fired an S-8L laser-guided rocket.

Never-before-seen footage showing a Sukhoi S-70 Okhotnik-B stealth combat drone dropping a FAB-500 bomb during a recent test were also included in the report.

Overall, the report highlights the recent developments in Russia’s large drone program. In the last few years, the Russian military industrial complex made many breakthroughs related to the design and production of drones.

Russia is not only looking to build a large fleet of drones, but also to export these advanced combat systems to its allies around the world.

Good work chaps.

The NATO terror proxies need do be purged from Syria and everywhere else that NATO is causing trouble.


BOOM!!!! goodnight Vienna you bastards.


Hope they able to create more bigger warhead for those loitering munition like using warhead of tos buratino, 122mm grad, 220mm uragan, or 300mm smerch. The better one they just create those loitering munition using this rocket body and add wings with camera guided control. It will make those jihadist shit their pants when those rocket suddenly fall over their head

The end

They wont have time to shit anything.


The United States become famous for drone strike all over the middle east and Africa but now I’m expecting all Russian air strike in Syria to be from drones .

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
