Israel sells UAVs to Russia

Maybe Russia is not at the leading edge of the high-tech industry, but one thing they know is reverse engineering. That is why they don’t need to buy many. So, coming soon: expect Russian clones at an unscrupulous arms dealer/rogue state/terrorist org. near you.

RIA Novosti: Russia Signs Deal to Buy Israeli Drones

The Russian Defense Ministry has signed a deal with an Israeli company to buy several unmanned aerial vehicles, Russian Deputy Defense Minister Vladimir Popovkin said Friday. … a contract signed with Israel Aerospace Industries envisioned the purchase of the Bird-Eye 400 mini-UAV (range-10 km), I-view MK150 tactical UAV (100 km), and Searcher Mk II medium-range UAV (250 km).
Popovkin said the purchase was a temporary measure designed “to show our industry what it [a spy drone] is.” “We will rely on our own equipment to fight wars,” he said.
