NOVOROSSIISK, September 4. /TASS/. Airborne troops from Russia, Belarus and Serbia will track and destroy notional illegal armed groups using Grusha and Granat-1 unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) in the Slavic Brotherhood exercise, a forces official said on Friday.
Reconnaisance equipment with a 10-kilometer combat radius will fly, Defense Ministry press officer Irina Kruglova said.
UAVs will perform surveillance and reconnaissance online, feeding photographic and video imagery of notional enemy positions to the exercise control center. Based on intelligence amassed, Belarusian and Serbian operators will destroy those identified.
The exercise will also involve Strelets reconnaissance, command, control and communication systems interacting with artillery and aircraft to feed target location data.
"Several versions are designed for unit commanders and scouts," Kruglova said. "GPS sensors enable the commander to keep an eye on his troops with the use of a tablet displaying a map and target designation from the scouts."
