Russian Army uses drones during military exercises



The Russian Army is using drones in its military exercises in the eastern regions of the country, a spokesman for the Eastern Military District said on Tuesday.
“A special-purpose training, involving an Eastern Military District unmanned air vehicle team, has started on Sakhalin Island today under the supervision of specialists from the unmanned aircraft division of the Defense Ministry of the Russian Federation,” Col. Alexander Gordeev said.
The drones, named Forpost, Zastava, Grusha and Leer, will be used for examining the coastline and searching for ‘sunken ships’ during the drills.
The Eastern Military District is a strategic command of Russia’s Armed Forces covering the country’s Far East and a part of Siberia.
