The Armed Forces of Ukraine explained what is the peculiarity of Iranian drones
Iranian drones often change route during an attack.
Iranian kamikaze drones, which the Russians have adopted, often change route during an attack. This was announced by the head of the joint coordinating headquarters of the press center of the Defense Forces of the South of Ukraine Natalia Gumenyuk on the air of the information telethon.
The dry statistics of the last days of combat indicate that they continue to use missile attacks, using them in other regions, and the use of these kamikaze drones has also become more frequent, she said.
However, as Gumenyuk noted, drones can not be launched to all regions due to the limited flight range, so the regions close to the front line should be wary of them.
She also noted that these drones have a loud enough engine, so their approach can be heard.
The performance characteristics of drones have not yet been fully explored because there is conflicting data on how far they can be directed. Now it is being studied. I think that in the near future we will inform and orient everyone, - summed up Gumenyuk.
It is known that due to the lack of its own unmanned vehicles, the Russian Federation turned to Iran for help. Today, it is known about the order of about 1,000 units of various Shahed modifications, including reconnaissance ones. How many kamikaze drones the Russian side received is unknown.
Describing the characteristics of drones, the Iranian media reported on the possibility of targeting them using optical means. In addition, these drones are capable of swarming and aiming at different targets. The Shahed-136 can carry 4 or 8 missiles and is equipped with a self-destruct device. That is, after shooting the combat reserve, he himself hits the target.
