Russia Must Develop Unmanned Planes – Putin

Russia must develop a range of military unmanned air vehicles (UAV) including strike and reconnaissance types, Russian President Vladimir Putin said on Thursday during a visit to an air force base.

“We need a program for unmanned aircraft. Experts say this is a most important area of development in aviation,” he said. “We need a range of all types, including automated strike aircraft, reconnaissance and other types,” Putin said.

Russia plans to spend around 400 billion rubles ($13 billion) on UAV development in the next eight years.
