General Baluyevsky says Chinese quadrocopters revolutionized artillery

MOSCOW, August 11 – RIA Novosti. Former Chief of Staff of the RF Armed Forces (2004-2008), Army General Yuri Baluyevsky, said that simple Chinese commercial quadrocopters have made a real revolution in the use of traditional artillery and rocket artillery.

In early August, the concern Almaz-Antey announced the creation of a new multifunctional drone. According to experts interviewed by RIA Novosti, it can be used for reconnaissance and target designation during a military special operation in Ukraine.

“Simple Chinese-made commercial quadrocopters have made a real revolution in the use of conventional artillery and rocket artillery and have almost completely solved the age-old problem of reconnaissance, target designation and adjustment of artillery fire,” says Baluyevsky in the author’s foreword. CAST book “Alien Wars – A New Paradigm” published Wednesday.

The General noted that when set with the help of a drone that constantly hovers over the target area, it is possible to use artillery with conventional shells with accuracy and efficiency comparable to firing precision-guided munitions. In particular, the number of shells and cannons required for destruction sharply decreased.

“This, ironically, contributed to the return (most likely, still temporary) of the god of war to its pedestal in a sense comparable to the value of conventional artillery during the First World War. As one of the observers rightly noted, the Chinese company DJI Mavic quadrocopter is in principle a true embodiment of modern warfare. It has become a symbol.” Said.

The same can be said about simple and inexpensive aircraft-type UAVs, in his opinion, such as the Russian-made Orlan-10; the additional advantage of this is that they are equipped with gasoline engines instead of electric ones, which increases significantly. airtime time.

Former Chief of Staff, “There is no doubt that the integration of UAVs with high-precision weapons has not yet exhausted the possibilities.” Said.
