YEREVAN, December 15. /TASS/. The Russian military base in Armenia has received new Orlan-10 reconnaissance unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) and started testing Navodchik-2 drones invisible from the ground, a Southern Military District spokesman told TASS on Tuesday.
The drones are being tested at the high mountainous Kamkhud training range in Armenia by the servicemen who have undergone special retraining at the training facility in the Moscow Region, the spokesman said.
According to the spokesman, "reconnaissance units will use Orlan-10 UAVs for the first time to track extended and point targets in high mountainous areas".
"The UAVs will be also involved in combat training of the military base’s units," the spokesman added.
"The military base’s servicemen will also learn to deploy the Navodchik-2 reconnaissance system, prepare it for launching, use the catapult for aircraft takeoff and landing, the spokesman said.
The modern Navodchik-2 and Orlan-10 systems "will boost the volume of tasks accomplished in high mountainous areas in Armenia in the interests of reconnaissance and special units by five times," the Southern Military District’s spokesman said.
The Russian military base is located in Armenia under an inter-governmental treaty signed between Moscow and Yerevan in 1995.
