The drone can be equipped with several types of sensors to carry out a set of different missions including reconnaissance, 3D-mapping, electronic warfare and communication relay.
Orlan-10 drones have been supporting the Russian special military operation in Ukraine since it started. More than 1,000 are known to be in service with the Russian military.
Ukraine received thousands of MANPADs, including more than 1,600 American-made FIM-92 Stinger missiles, from the United States and other NATO members in the months leading to the Russian special military operation, and after the start of the operation.
Kiev forces also received several vehicle-mounted short-range air defense systems, including British-made Stormer HVM, French-made Crotale and American-made Stormer HVM.
Despite all the support provided by the NATO, Ukraine is still struggling to rebuild its air defense capabilities. Russia says that it has destroyed more than 400 air defense systems of Kiev forces since the start of the special military operation in February.
