Russia boosts UAS flight training

1st November 2017 - 12:30 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


The Russian armed forces’ Western Military District has received more than 30 Orlan-10 and Eleron-3 short-range UAS throughout 2017, the Russian Ministry of Defence announced on 28 October.

In the 2017 training year, the total flying time of UAS training flights has reached more than 500 hours, which is 15% higher compared to 2016. This growth is attributed to the deployment of UAS in almost all operational and combat training carried out by the district this year.

The UAS are used for various-level tactical exercises and live-fire exercises.
