PressTV-Russia: Terrorists using advanced tech in drone attacks | DRONEPETS.ORG

Spread the love

Russia has warned that terrorists have acquired advanced technologies on unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) and can conduct drone strikes all over the world.

The head of the UAV department of the Russian General Staff said on Thursday that the threat of terrorists using drones for attacks was not an unlikely scenario, citing strikes on two Russian bases in Syria earlier this month.

Major General Aleksander Novikov said a technical assessment of the drones used in the assaults showed the “emergence of a real threat of the UAV use for terrorist purposes anywhere in the world, which requires the adoption of appropriate measures for its neutralization.”

According to the Russian Defense Ministry, 13 drones targeted the Hmeimim airbase in Latakia Province and the naval facility in the port city of Tartus on January 6.

It said Russian forces repelled the assaults by shooting down seven of the drones and gaining electronic control over six others and safely landing them. The drone attacks caused no damage.

Elsewhere in his remarks, Novikov pointed out that the coordinates used for the drone attacks were much more precise than those available on the internet.

“The production of such deadly machines requires superior professional knowledge, practical skills and experience in operating drones,” he said.

The Russian general further stressed that until recently, terrorists used “primitive” drones only for reconnaissance activities, but they began to employ foreign-made quadcopters for different purposes in Syria in mid-2016.

“The research showed that the avionics equipment mounted on the drones [used in the Syria attacks] facilitated their fully automated preprogrammed flight and bombing, ruling out any jamming,” Novikov said.

The explosives carried by the drones could have been manufactured in a number of countries, including Ukraine, he added.

In a statement released on Tuesday, Russian Defense Ministry said it had detected an American spy aircraft circling in the skies over the Russian facilities in Syria during the January 6 drone strikes.

The ministry also said data for the drone attacks could have only been obtained “from one of the countries that possesses knowhow in satellite navigation,” without naming any particular country.

Ex-CIA Analyst: Terrorists Can Create Drones From US-Backed Militants’ Equipment | WARFAREWEB.COM

Fetired CIA officer Phil Giraldisays that Terrorists across the Middle East region can craft their drones from the captured equipment, supplied by US to the Iraqi Army.

WASHINGTON (Sputnik) — Terrorists in different groups across the Middle East region can now put together their own unmanned aerial vehicles from all the advanced US-supplied equipment they captured from the Iraqi Army, retired CIA officer Phil Giraldi told Sputnik.

“Terrorists in the Middle East can create drones from equipment captured from the Iraqi Army or turned over by US supported militants but most of the technologies are fairly well known,” Giraldi said on Monday.

An attempt by terrorists to attack Russian military facilities in Syria with the help of combat drones was disrupted overnight from January 5 to January 6, the Russian Defense Ministry said in a statement on Monday.

Russian air defense identified ten drones of unknown origin approaching the Hmeymim air base and three approaching the Tartus naval facility. Three UAVs were brought to the ground in a controlled area outside the base, three more detonated from a collision with the ground, while seven were destroyed by missiles.

The Russian Defense Ministry said the fact that militants used such combat drones indicates they were given technologies that allow carrying out terrorist acts using similar unmanned aircraft in any country.

Giraldi agreed with the Russian military assessment that the use of UAVs added another level of lethality to extreme Islamist and other terror groups.

“It is indeed a serious threat as drones create another dimension that conventional military and police forces have to guard against,” he said.

Daesh, al-Qaeda, the Nusra Front and other terror groups were also developing growing capabilities to buy UAVs or enough components to assemble them on the international market, Giraldi warned.

“I would not necessarily assume that the drones are not indigenously produced. The technologies are fairly well known and the components are available on black market and even legitimate arms markets,” he said.

Hezbollah in Lebanon had already been producing its own drones for some time, Giraldi pointed out.

“There is no reason to assume that radical groups have been unable to do the same, utilizing cannibalized parts from equipment captured from the Iraqi Army or turned over by US- supported militants,” he said.

The effectiveness and versatility of UAVs for many different combat missions made them as attractive to terrorist groups as they were to established military forces, Giraldi explained.

“Drones are the cutting edge of twenty-first century warfare and it is inevitable that everyone who aspires to military competency will acquire them,” he concluded.

Army to modernise weapons on war footing, will give hi tech rifles to soldiers – YouTube | WARFAREWEB.COM

Spread the love

Seeking to equip its soldiers with advanced weapons to combat terrorists, the Indian Army is planning to buy more than three lakh assault rifles and close quarter carbines at a cost of around Rs 10,000 crore from global vendors. “Two separate proposals for buying more than two lakh assault rifles and over one lakh close quarter carbines for infantrymen who will use them along the Line of Control (LoC) and in counter-terrorism operations in Jammu and Kashmir and Northeastern states are being moved before the defence ministry for clearance in the coming weeks,” a government source told MAIL TODAY The proposal, which will be processed through the fast track procurement route by the Army, would be considered at a high level meeting of the defence ministry which will take a final call on how to proceed on the ambitious Army project, the source said. The Army has been looking to buy these guns after several failed attempts but is hopeful that the project would finally go through in the coming times. Sources said the Army earlier had a requirement of more than eight lakh such assault rifles but due to the high cost of procurement involved, the plan was shelved and the requirement for foreign-made rifles was cut down. “It has now been decided that more than two lakh rifles would be procured from foreign vendors while the rest would be acquired from Indian manufacturers who would build the gun based on DRDO designs,” a source said. The logic behind curtailing the requirement is that not all troops are engaged in battle at one point of time and therefore, only the infantry and Rashtriya Rifles troops would get the imported and advanced assault rifles while other troops in the rear would get the locally-made rifles. The new assault rifles of 7.62 mm caliber would replace the indigenously manufactured INSAS-1B1 rifles manufactured by the Ordnance Factory Board as the Army has not been happy with them. Army sources said the 5.56mm caliber INSAS rifles were not proving to be very effective against terrorists and troops fighting in Kashmir and Northeast had to rely majorly on Kalashinikovs acquired from Russia and East European countries. Once approved, international companies manufacturing rifles, including the Israeli Weapon Industry (IWI), American Berretta, Colt, Swiss Sig Sauer and Czech Bren would be contacted. During an earlier attempt to buy the rifles, the tender had to be scrapped due to stringent requirements as it had asked vendors to submit proposals about guns with twin-barrels, including one for close combat terror and the other for carrying out duties in peaceful areas. The procurement of close quarter carbines is also important as they will be used to equip troops for close combat scenarios with terrorists or enemy troops. The effort to buy carbines from foreign vendors have not yielded any result since 2008 as a case was scrapped by the defence ministry in 2016 due to a single vendor situation whereas the contract had started with as many as 27 vendors. In the final round, one of the contenders was eliminated due to a very minor and inconsequential issue and the then defence minister decided against going forward with the project. The hunt for close quarter carbines will be relaunched now with the Army already having rejected the DRDO designed and developed excalibur rifle. The Army has to replace the British-origin Sterling 1A1 submachine guns
