Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Sunday, April 14, 2019

Kalashnikov, the company best known for creating and manufacturing the famous AK-47, is now stepping into the drones game. Kalashnikov has been developing a small sized drone capable of crashing a 3 kilogram warhead into a target over 40 kilometers away. The Kalashnikov KUB-BLA drone is 1.2 meters in length and can fly for 30 minutes at a top speed of 130 kilometers per hour. Deadly and efficient with its accuracy, the drone is also very hard to combat by common air defense systems.

Russians aren't the first to utilize these "suicide drones". In fact, the United States has gone on record using its own suicide drones against ISIS members during the battle to take back Mosul in 2016-2017. The difference between Americans developing effective suicide drones, and Russians developing effective suicide drones, is that the Russians seem to have a notorious track record of where their weapons technology end up.

Oh yes... absolutely.
