Russia to buy unmanned drones ( spyplanes ) from Israel. This is the first time Russia buys this type of equipment from Israel.
The contract is already signed, according to Interfax
No mention of how many as of now according to AFP
Norwegian newspaper Dagbladet quotes Interfax and AFP on this:
|Quoting Wvsuperhornet (Reply 4):|
Nice article but it doesn't seem to bode well for the Russian aircraft industry that they haven't made their own by now.
|Quoting Par13del (Reply 5):|
Bigger picture for me is how long will it be before Israel's hostile neighbours benefit from this technology, if it is all about the money then short term Israel makes money, long term they stand to loose as the Russians learn and adapt the technology for their industry and export it to their allies.
He added that Russia wanted to study the technology of the drones in an effort to improve its own pilotless planes, which came under criticism during the Georgia conflict.
|Quoting DL767captain (Reply 8):|
Why would Israel sell this type of equipment to Russia, a country which seems to have ties to Iran, North Korea, and multiple other countries that these drones could be sold to and used against Israel
