The Russian company Kalashnikov will increase the production of drones for the army, its president Alan Lushnikov said on Tuesday.
“We are developing a line of unmanned deviceswhich is especially important in modern conditions. These are tactical drones. I mean all those that are not launched from airfields. This is our niche,” he said on state television.
He stressed that the drones produced by Kalashnikov showed “very good” performance in the context of the Russian invasion of Ukraine, therefore the company proposes to “increase production and develop new” models.
In August, Lushnikov assured that the company would focus on the production of Lancet and Cube suicide drones, but would not increase the production of other devices.
Recently, Russian President Vladimir Putin assured that every platoon of the Russian army should have a drone to fight the “enemy” in Ukraine, the territory of which the Russian Federation has been bombing in recent months with devices made in countries such as Iran.
