Russia already has a weapon capable of disabling any drone


As a result of the use of that missile of more than 3,5 million dollars used to shoot down a simple drone that cost just over 200 dollars, a large number of projects have arisen that precisely seek to make something so simple as cheap as possible How to maintain this class of aircraft, which everyone can have access to, far from the restricted air spaces of each country or to war zones where an army literally, as was the case, cannot devote itself to killing flies with cannon fire.

One of the big problems facing the Russian government is military fixed-wing drones, a new weapon that can strike while being controlled from several thousand kilometers away by one person. Curiously, according to the country's military authorities, they warn that, although at the moment this type of drones does not worry them too much because they already have economic weapons capable of eliminating them, the truth is that little by little they are evolving in terms of qualities and costs, so it does not hurt to develop some type of system capable of neutralizing them.

Krasuja is the name with which Russia has baptized its system capable of neutralizing any drone more than 300 kilometers away.

One of the programs that most worries the Russian armies is those practices that the United States is carrying out through which they intend to equip their fighters with swarms made up of a multitude of drones, which would mean that there would be no possibility of offering an iron defense against the attack of many units and, of course, they cannot launch hundreds of missiles into the air hoping to contain an attack like this.

Given this, the Russian Armed Forces have been equipped with what they themselves have baptized as Krasuja, a system capable of eliminating spy satellites, aerial and ground radars and even interrupting and intercepting the control systems of enemy drones. As expected, Krasuja's technical characteristics are classified but, according to various sources, it appears that the platform would be capable of operating up to 300 kilometers. According to statements by Sergei Chemezov, Director of the Rostec Technologies Corporation:

Rostec created an electronic warfare system with which drone control devices can be damaged. The on-board equipment 'burns out', and the drone turns into a piece of iron.
