VLADIVOSTOK, November 3. /TASS/. The unmanned aircraft unit of Russia’s Eastern Military District deployed to the Amur region has received a shipment of new Eleron-3 unmanned aircraft that will allow to conduct round-the-clock reconnaissance missions and transfer data via secured channels, Eastern Military District Spokesman Colonel Alexander Gordeyev told TASS on Thursday.
"The Eleron-3 unmanned aircraft is equipped with a low-noise electric engine and the GLONASS/GPS navigation devices. It has reduced optical, acoustic and radar signature and is designed to carry replaceable photo and video cameras, a thermal imager, a jamming station and other useful devices," Gordeyev elaborated.
The unmanned aircraft is capable of operating at various heights and in various temperatures over 50 kilometers away from the ground control station.
According to Gordeyev, operators for this unmanned aircraft have already been retrained at the Defense Ministry’s Training Center for Unmanned Aviation.
