Russian Military to Receive New Surveillance Drones in 2016


Russia’s United Instrument-Making Corporation will start supplying the small-class Korsar unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) to the Russian Armed Forces in late 2016. This was announced by United Instrument-Making Corporation CEO Alexander Yakunin.

“We are currently implementing a large-scale project to create a prospective small-class Korsar UAV and organize its serial production. The production is scheduled to begin in the first quarter of 2017 and reach its planned capacity before the end of 2017. However, we expect to begin the supplies in late 2016,” Mr. Yakunin stated, noting that a new drone designed for surveillance of a range of up to 50 kilometers is a unique project for the Russian defence industry

“For Russia, this is a new industry. No projects at the intersection of the aircraft industry and radio electronics were implemented before. Thus, our company will supply the Defence Ministry with everything it needs regarding the drones of this class,” Mr. Yakunin concluded.
