Russia ordered 1,000 attack and reconnaissance drones from Iran.
“Russia signed a contract with Iran for the purchase of 1,000 UAVs after Iran delivered several planes and a simulator on which Russian officers trained. The first drones were already used in Ukraine,” the journalist writes.
In particular, we are talking about Shahid 129.
According to Magier, in the last decade, the Russian Federation did not pay due attention and investments to the drone industry, but focused on the development of hypersonic missiles. But, as the war in Ukraine showed, drones have become necessary for every army.
