Prospects of Orion;
According to & nbsp; Litovkin's opinion, in the & nbsp; perspective, Russian UAV manufacturers will be able to destroy the monopoly of Israel, the United States and & nbsp; China on the & nbsp; market for unmanned aerial vehicles.
For & nbsp; us it is the first drone of this class that can be used as a weapon and & nbsp; act as a reconnaissance and & nbsp; tool for monitoring large Russian spaces. And & nbsp; most important & nbsp; & mdash; that & nbsp; this machine is mass-produced, and & nbsp; the Ministry of Defense & nbsp; already has a contract for & nbsp; this drone. All this says & nbsp; that & nbsp; we are going by leaps and bounds and & nbsp; at & nbsp; some & nbsp; moment, most likely, we will destroy the American-Israeli and & nbsp; Chinese monopoly on & nbsp; supply of such funds & raquo;, & nbsp; & mdash; military expert believes.
