Drones as a Weapon to Combat ISIS



drones in ukraine

While Russia, the United States and other countries are keen to have more modern aircraft, Ukraine has not been able to provide the same training for its soldiers. While Ukrainians are able to receive training on aircraft and other vehicles in Western nations like Germany, they can't get the same training for drones in Ukraine. Ukrainians are used to using older equipment like trucks, and drones are easier to use for them. In addition, drones do not require "pilots," making them easy for soldiers to use. Drones feature a user-friendly interface similar to that found in videogames.

Aerorozvidka

Ukrainian military uses an unusual approach to fighting ISIS in east Ukraine. Octocopters are equipped with thermal cameras and can be used for night-time missions. Some drones can be fitted with antitank weapons and can even light up columns. These drones can transport up to 11 pounds of payload. They are maneuverable. They are small enough to fly low above targets and drop munitions.

Aerorozvidka began as an IT enthusiast group. It has since evolved into a military air reconnaissance unit. Although the organization started as a civil drone company, it grew into a fully-fledged unit with its head. Because of export controls, the Ukrainian government barred Russian military aircraft from entering the country. Aerorozvidka relies upon crowdfunding and donations to maintain its existence since many of its components are manufactured in the US.

Switchblade

The U.S. military has supplied Ukraine with armed "Switchblade," drones capable of striking Russian tanks from faraway. These unmanned aircraft vehicles were created by the US Air Force in response a Ukrainian request. John Kirby (Pentagon spokesperson) stated that more then 121 of these machines have been dispatched to Ukraine. The Switchblades' use in the conflict in Ukraine is unknown.

The Switchblade drone is small and easy to launch from a tube. It has a range 40 km. The Switchblade has a range of 40 kilometers and can hit Russian convoys up to 6 miles, unlike Bayraktar. These small aircraft can easily be assembled in minutes for a conflict such as Ukraine. The Switchblade's speed is faster than that of the Bayraktar. This is the current U.S. Ally.


Russian kamikaze drones

The US announced recently that they would be providing $800 million of military aid to Ukraine. The delivery of 121 unmanned aircraft called "Phoenix Ghosts", which is intended to terrorize Russian forces, is part of the package. These unmanned aircraft can fly for 30 to 40 minutes over large areas and are equipped with cameras and warheads. Switchblade, a hovering munition of 5.5 pounds that can kill tanks and armored cars, is an example.

These lightweight aircrafts are small and light, and can operate from any location, whether it is land, air or sea. A conflict like this is where every advantage one side has over the other in an aerial battle is critical. Russian kamikaze helicopters are a direct threat. This capability will likely be key to Ukraine's military, as it can easily break Russian sieges and attack command-and-control nodes. While such capabilities would be a major liability for both sides, if a small drone can make a difference on the battlefield, Ukraine could emerge as the victor.

U.S. loitering Drones

Russia began integrating ZALA KYB lotering munitions into its military arsenal. These drones can also use lethal loitering weapons in the same manner as bazookas. These autonomous killing machines may be more common in black markets if loitering drones are used. But observers and pundits are worried about this. So what can the U.S. do to stop this from happening?

Kirby reports that the U.S. government dispatched more then 121 Switchblade loitering drones to Ukraine to support Kiev's fight against Russian forces. The Switchblade drone is 5.5 pounds and can hover over an area for thirty to forty minutes. It's equipped with a camera. Its purpose is to destroy the opposition forces in Ukraine.
