During the international defense exhibition known as IDEX 2019, the Kalashnikov Group, the famous rifle manufacturer, revealed a kamikaze-style drone.
Judging from the limited information available, the KUB-BLA Unmanned Aerial System (UAS) is very small, with dimensions of 1210 х 950 х 165 mm.
“This is an extremely precise and very effective weapon, incredibly hard to fight by traditional air defense systems,” said Sergey Chemezov, the chief executive officer (CEO) of the Rostec Corporation, which owns the Kalashnikov Group. “The explosive can be delivered to target regardless of how well hidden it is. It operates regardless of hidden terrains, at both high and low altitude.”
According to representatives from the Kalashnikov Group, the drone has been tested by the Russian military and some have already been issued to front-line units.
