BEIRUT, LEBANON (4:30 P.M.) – The Russian defense contractor Kalashnikov Concern reportedly tested their kamikaze drones during the Syrian war, the Southfront recently reported.
According to the report, at least five kamikaze drones mysteriously attacked Harakat Ahrar Al-Sham’s positions inside the Idlib Governorate town of Ma’ar Shamarin on October 19th, 2015.
“A few hours after the attack, the local SMART News Agency interviewed the fighters who survived the attack. They all seemed to be shocked and terrified by the “Wunderwaffe” that killed one of their comrades and destroyed most of their equipment,” the report said.
The Kalashnikov “high-precision unmanned aerial system” KUB-BLA was for the first time showcased at the International Exhibition of Arms and Military Equipment 2019 in Abu Dhabi.
“The KUB-BLA has a 3-kilogram payload, a flying time of 30 minutes, and a 80-130-kilometer-per-hour speed. It measures 1210mm wide by 950mm long and 165mm high. Typically, the payload is apparently a high-explosive charge. Kalashnikov Concern says that the advantages of the system are ‘hidden launch, high accuracy of the shot, noiselessness and ease of handling,'” the report would add.
