RIA Novosti: Russian Guard used drones inconspicuous for air defense in Ukraine
As part of a special military operation in Ukraine, units of the Russian Guard used UAVs invisible to Ukrainian air defense. This was reported to journalists by a source in law enforcement agencies.
We are talking about ZALA 421-16E HD aircraft. Due to the electric motor, in combination with their small size, composite materials and light camouflage, they remain practically invisible to various enemy air defense systems. And they don’t even capture thermal homing heads for MANPADS.
According to the military, the loss of drones in this way is reduced to almost isolated cases.
