And I don't write the laws for the Geneva convention, so I would have no say as in what goes in the rules or not. But my guess is that it would be an ethical issue.
Interesting...well anyway, it would be intersting to see Russia with Israeli UAVs, specially that Israel is very advanced and experienced in this field. I doubt Russia lacks the tecnology of making these UAVs but instead of time or funds to start a UAV mass production, new assembly line, etc, etc, etc...
And it is well known that all sides (east and west) have UAV's and other unmanned equipment that can launch missiles or shoot. But does not stop the fact that they still need pilots and soldiers.
Dont argue guys, Russia is lagging behind Israel, although it is not "ages behind". The most important thing is electronics that unfortunately it is not as advanced in Russia as it is in Israel. That is why Russian UAVs cannot match weight restrictions to perform long distance and long air patroling missions.
Russia just needs those UAVs to supply at least some of the regiments with them in case of round2 from Saakashvili or another smart a$$. So it would be nice and smart to get some from Israel and give some time to Russian engineers to try to produce something on their own without being limited with time frame "cuz we need em now bastards!"=) Supply the army with something it can use untill Russian made UAV hits production line and make efforts to create the best UAV we can without hurry. IMO.
P.S. to Israeli members. I do not understand why u are so agressive towards Russia. Yes there are nationalistic idiots on the forums and in common life. But after all there are LOADS of jews here in Russia, people are living with them, making friends, working etc. There is no anti-simitic rhetoric in Russian society, although people are lil angry cuz all our oligarchs(well like 90% of em) are jews, and thats what makes people dislike "those cunning jews". But if you are not oligarch, if you dont consider yourself to be better then others, then you are just a common citizen of Russian Federation, you are part of it, just as many other nationalities.
Sep... If Russian UAV's would be as advanced as Russian manufacturers say then Russia would be fielding a large amount of them.. UAV's are not really expensive and the advantages they give are just amazing..
TakeIt.. UAV's in Georgia just showed how effective the UAV's really are.. Thats why Russia decided to get the Israeli UAV's.. I already posted the article that says that Russian officers were impressed by the Israeli UAV's during Georgia war..
No doubts, that we(Russia) need to purchase an advanced western UAVs to gather experience in utilization, construction and service of it. Now, we're outsiders on that field of technologies, it's sad, but it's true.
But there is the BIG question - "Will US let Israel to sell it to us?"

Of course. Yet again, the problem is not UAVs themselfes, but the army structure, command routines etc. Now Russia tries to reform it's forces to adapt to modern demands, creating new structures, yet only several experimental regiments were created to see how concept works in the field.UAV's are not really expensive and the advantages they give are just amazing..
Really? Look how much time passed already without any clear results.TakeIt.. UAV's in Georgia just showed how effective the UAV's really are.. Thats why Russia decided to get the Israeli UAV's..
Impressed by exactly what capabilities of the georgian UAVs?I already posted the article that says that Russian officers were impressed by the Israeli UAV's during Georgia war..
Haha!Russia sale UAVs from Israel for Russia reseach and copy it.
