    Russia plans to develop drones with explosives to create lethal swarms

    Russia plans to develop drones with explosives to create lethal swarms

    This should be a pretty effective tactic. Now we need to think up a counter.

    In May, I reported that the Iranian-backed terrorist group Palestinian Islamic Jihad had released a video purporting to show an IED being dropped from a small drone onto Israeli tanks on the Gaza border. The terrorist threat from drones is a serious concern to authorities around the world, with the vulnerability of aircraft and crowded spaces a particular cause for concern.
    Now, Russia's military has decided to get in on the act, taking a lesson from the militants it has also faced in the Middle East, arming its own miniature (read domestic-sized) drones as a new battlefield tactic. A spokesperson for the Defense Ministry told Izvestia that it is exploring the use of such drones to deliver lethal payloads.


    Such small devices are already used for surveillance and reconnaissance. But Russia's plan is for such drones to "strike targets with bombs—making mini-UAVs extremely effective weapons." Russia envisages all branches of its military having access to the devices, with special forces the first to benefit—the defense spokesperson confirmed that "miniature bombs are being developed" for the drones, which will be modified to carry them.




    Initial payloads will be no more than one kilogram, but that would enable a grenade or IED to be delivered with enough explosive charge to cause lethal damage if delivered right on target. Heavier payloads—up to 20 kilograms—are also envisaged.

    Yep Metal Storm.



    Well, here I’m going to tell you about another gun — Metal Storm gun — whose firing speed blows M134 Minigun away. This prototype system fires 16,000 rounds per second or 1,000,000 rounds per minute.

    Metal Storm gun was developed by an Australian weapon company, that delivered gun systems to the US Navy for surface ships.....snip~



    The Russian ideas still one step behind.

    And lasers.

    I would think types of electronic warfare would work too.
