London: Russia is increasingly using surveillance drones
According to British intelligence agencies, Russia is increasingly using surveillance drones to prepare for its airstrikes on Ukraine. According to the Ministry of Defense in London, these are mostly Russian-made aircraft called Supercam, which are relatively cheap and have sufficient range to fly over potential attack targets.
Experts estimate that the drones can stay in the air for around four to five hours and fly up to five kilometers high. This tactic should help Russia to assess battle damage more quickly and improve accuracy. “The Russian military’s slow and inefficient targeting process was a major weakness of the operation in Ukraine,” it said in London. “However, slow surveillance drones are very vulnerable to Ukrainian air defenses.”
