IRAN SENDS THE FIRST DRONES SHIPMENT TO RUSSIA TO HELP IN THE UKRAINE WAR

Iran sends the first Drones shipment to Russia to help in the Ukraine war

Iran provides Russia with hundreds of drones to help its efforts in the war against Ukraine, according to Western Intelligence officials.

The transportation aircraft departed Iran on August 19 which carried the initial burden of unmanned air vehicles (UAVs) to help Russian troops, the Washington Post reported Monday night.

Drones are able to carry ammunition for attacks on radar stations, artillery, and other military objectives of the information collected by the United States and other espionage agencies.

The supply of these weapons shows a clear alliance between Russia and Iran, with Moscow and Tehran, negotiating the agreement in a joint effort to try to obtain an advantage in the war in Ukraine.

However, as much as the arrival of these weapons can strengthen Russian military attacks, reports from US security officials have emerged that new drones have been disturbed by technical difficulties, with Iranian weapons experiencing various failures during early testing.

“There are a few bugs in the system,” according to an allied security official interviewed by the post. “The Russians are not satisfied.”

The Russian army has access to 1,500 and 2,000 surveillance drones, but the Iranian shipment provides Russia with weapons of which they are in need: attack drones capable of providing precision strikes against targets deep in enemy territory.

On the other side of the battlefield, Ukraine has used UAVs of Turkish manufacturing combats that have been effective to destroy Russian armor, trucks, and artillery.

In addition, the United States has also helped Ukraine with the high mobility artillery rocket system (HIMARS), which can launch multiple rockets with precision in Russian ammunition deposits and logistics supplies from almost 50 miles away.

“Russia does not have a way to limit the damage caused by HIMARS to them now,” said Dmitri Alperovitch. “They hope that drone attacks can help.”

Biden’s government warned Tehran not to send drones to Russia, but intelligence officials said the warning was ignored.

Even if weapons are considered among the most sophisticated drones in Iran, their good quality of poor quality makes many ineffective combat drones at this stage.
