Russia deploys boomerang drone against ukraine all about the new kamikaze uav its capabilities2 min read
Kyiv: Like last year, Russia is resorting to drones this year as well in the war against Ukraine. He is now deploying a new set of drones to capture the cities of Ukraine. A video recently released by the Russian Defense Ministry showed Russian forces using new drones to attack Ukrainian military positions. However, the ministry did not disclose any information about its manufacture and the source of the drone.
The Kremlin last year deployed Iranian-made drones, known as kamikaze drones, to carry out airstrikes on Ukrainian infrastructure. However, British defense officials have suggested that Moscow has phased out the drones. In a change of strategy, the Kremlin has released a new Boomerang VR (virtual reality) headset controlled kamikaze drone.
According to Newsweek’s report, the drone is operated by two soldiers – an operator and an assistant. While the operator uses a VR headset to find and hit the target, the assistant operator launches the drone and tracks its flight direction to help guide the operator. It consists of four rotors, four small engines and a large storage battery. It can travel up to 110 mph (17 kph) and can engage targets while in flight. It can target the soldiers present in the shelters. It consists of a special container filled with explosive elements. It can stay in the air for at least three hours.
