In an interview with NEWS.ru, Pylaev stressed that in the case of Iranian UAVs, the point is not so much in their combat or tactical characteristics, but rather in their mass character. As the expert noted, the most ordinary, household Maviks, which are engaged in close range reconnaissance, are in great demand at the forefront.
According to the expert, the task at the moment is simple, and it consists in saturating the Russian troops and infantry groups by means of surveillance and reconnaissance.
In addition, Pylaev added that loitering ammunition will also play an important role in this situation, since a drone armed with them will be able to hover over areas that pose a threat and hit targets in given square.
