Russia is expected to elaborate the combat and reconnaissance drones soon taking into account the experience of the US and Israel, Russian Deputy Prime Minister Dmitry Rogozin told Sputnik.
MOSCOW (Sputnik) — Russia has rapidly reduced and is expected to completely eliminate its lag behind the United States and Israel in the creation of combat and reconnaissance unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) soon, Russian Deputy Prime Minister Dmitry Rogozin told Sputnik.
“Concerning the UAVs I should only say that there is no point of speaking about some lagging behind. It has been rapidly reduced and will be completely eliminated soon,” Rogozin said in an interview.
Rogozin specified that he was speaking about both combat and reconnaissance drones.
A drone, or an unmanned aerial vehicle, is a remote-controlled aircraft without a human pilot aboard. Drones are currently used in policing, firefighting, pipeline checks, as well as for military purposes.
