Russia used the unique Moskit electronic warfare UAV for the first time in Ukraine

There have been records of the Moskit electronic warfare UAV being used by the Russian Army for the first time on the Ukrainian battlefield.

Although the design is similar to the Orlan-10 drone, Russia’s Moskit electronic warfare UAV is responsible for jamming enemy communications systems.

As international military experts have repeatedly stated, the Ukraine conflict is a testing ground for new technologies. Attack or reconnaissance drones are an integral part of this war.

Ukraine and Russia have shown that such unmanned combat vehicles are the perfect tool for precision artillery strikes after they take on a targeting mission.

Russia seems to think that the war in Ukraine will continue beyond 2023, of course, this is based on the actual situation. But whether the foreign policy of the United States, Ukraine, and Russia will succeed in the next few months, we can only speculate.

It is clear, however, that Russia is enjoying some remarkable success. Now relying solely on its own technology, the Russian Army has unveiled a new type of drone, the Moskit electronic warfare UAV.

Russia claims that this drone has repeatedly participated in military operations in Ukraine, the aforementioned UAV has even successfully jammed Ukrainian communications several times.

Currently, according to sources in Russia, the Moskit electronic warfare drone has proven its superior tactical and technical features, so they can soon be mass-produced.

A video has just been posted by the Russian Army showing this special unmanned aircraft being launched from the rails with the ability to collapse, which signals that the vehicle can be easily maneuvered anywhere on the planet’s battlefield.

The image shows the propeller of the Moskit UAV being started manually by hand. Next is a soldier using the winch crank, pulling the feed rope to its limit, to make sure the force is strong enough to launch the drone.

After the drone is launched, it will accelerate rapidly and reach a certain altitude during the flight. When the mission is complete, a parachute will open and drop the UAV to the ground.

The Moskit electronic warfare drone has something like an airbag that is activated just before hitting the ground. In this way, the impact of the vehicle on the ground during landing is reduced.

Moskit UAV has modules to suppress and jam electronic channels for communication and data transmission, it can intercept communications at a range of up to 5 km, making it difficult for enemy forward units to interact cooperatively with the command post or control center in the back.

The Moskit has a direct communication link with the operator. The tester will monitor the flight as well as enter commands to execute. It is known that one of the most important roles of this UAV is to perform intelligence-surveillance-reconnaissance (ISR) missions.

If this is true, then the Moskit UAV must be equipped with photovoltaic modules and systems for the above purpose. Whether the drone is capable of performing electronic jamming and ISR missions simultaneously is unknown, but it is quite possible.

But there is an interesting detail, that is, if the tactical technical features of the Moskit electronic warfare UAV are so superior, the Russian media has not mentioned it since the beginning of the war until now, just like their tradition.

It is highly likely that the Moskit has only undergone initial tests, and it is not possible to confirm that it really has an impressive performance like what the Russian press has just mentioned.
