Russian experts: in the future, manned fighters of new weapons will work together with UAVs
[global military report] Russian satellite news agency reported on January 1 that Alexei leonkov, a Russian military expert and magazine of the national Arsenal, told the satellite news agency how the Russian Arsenal will be improved in the next 30 years. He talked about hypersonic missiles Laser devices, unmanned aerial vehicles, medical robots, etc
it is reported that one of the trends in Russia's national defense construction today is to acquire and master hypersonic guidance technology. At present, Russia has several systems in the field of strategic nuclear forces operating with this technology, namely the "dagger" hypersonic system and the "zircon" hypersonic anti-ship missile. Leonkov said, "in the future, this technology will be improved and applied to the field of air defense. It is likely that air-to-air or air to ground missile systems using this technology will appear."

leonkov said that the next direction of Russian weapon development is to improve laser technology. He said: "Russia has a 'pelesvit' combat laser transmitter, which is only the first model. In the future, relevant improvements will be made, including reducing the size, installing a more compact power unit and increasing the signal power, as well as adopting a multi-channel system and various photoelectric reconnaissance and target indication systems. The former can damage parts with dimensional tolerance requirements of various targets and be used to deal with high-precision weapons, while the latter can be installed on aviation systems and UAVs. ”
for robot technology and equipment, leonkov said: "the next stage of weapon improvement is the development of robotic systems and air, land and sea unmanned aerial vehicles, which will not only perform reconnaissance missions, but also become a reconnaissance and strike complex. Speaking of the air field, Russia will complete the combination of 'aircraft + several unmanned aerial vehicles'. Unmanned aerial vehicles will play the role of reconnaissance, target indication and the implementation of the first strike."Speaking of the land-based UAV system, the expert said that the Russian army would improve the fire support system and the logistics system related to medical services and the supply of ammunition to the forefront of combat operations. The maritime system will be developed in the field of reconnaissance and detection of submarines and mine arrangement. Leonkov believes that the system that can transport lethal weapons to ultra long distances according to the "Poseidon" principle will also be improved Leonkov also said that the Russian navy is expected to have a new generation of submarines and will modernize and upgrade the equipment of the Marine Corps. He said: "(Russia) will have a fifth generation submarine 'husky', which is likely to be a multi-purpose submarine, which will carry out tasks such as integrated operations with surface and underwater, and be able to strike the imaginary enemy's land military and civilian infrastructure targets." Leonkov added, "Russia will also improve its warship establishment. The Marine Corps will be equipped with more modern weapons and equipment to seize the landing site and defend it, so as to provide conditions for major troops to land at sea."
when talking about land-based technical equipment, leonkov predicted that the unmanned combat module will enhance its ability to resist deformation in the experimental preparation of torsional mechanical properties of light armor materials and replace the manned module. The unmanned module is conducive to reducing the number of crew of combat technology equipment and reducing the loss of personnelLeonkov also said that in the aviation field, the fifth generation aircraft will gradually replace the fourth generation aircraft, and the development of the sixth generation aircraft will also make progress. It is likely that it will be an unmanned aircraft that can fly at hypersonic speed
leonkov is not optimistic about the development prospects of more "novel" weapons such as magnetic railguns and mini unmanned aerial vehicles. He said: "unmanned aerial vehicle group is what many small aircraft fly up and accomplish. This is some kind of fantasy. Unmanned aerial vehicle group may not be able to resist electromagnetic radiation, and the electromagnetic radiation of the defense side will affect the aircraft group."
he added: "magnetic railguns have a limitation. Due to their characteristics, they cannot shoot like ballistic weapons. In a short distance, compared with traditional armor piercing bullets, the use cost of electromagnetic guns is very expensive. In terms of cost performance, using them at such a short distance is not a good option."
