Russia to start producing combat drones for exports in 2022

Moscow, Jul 2 (UNI/Sputnik) Russia's technology company Kronshtadt Group is preparing to launch in 2022 mass production of unmanned combat aerial vehicles for exports at a one-of-a-kind plant in the town of Dubna, sources in the defense industry and the Moscow region's government told Sputnik.
Late last month, a defense industry source told Sputnik that Russia had started to promote its first export combat drone Orion-E in the world arms market, adding that several potential buyers had already sent in purchase orders.
"Drone production at the Kronshtadt plant at Dubna for foreign customers is planned to be launched in 2022 as soon as demand for the Orion systems in the Russian armed forces is met," one of the sources said.
