Russia will unveil its new unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) including “Eleron”, “Orlan-10″, “Forpost” and “Gorizont” drones at the first International Forum Army-2015 held from June 16-19, the Defense Ministry said in a statement Monday.
"Complexes with unmanned aerial vehicles, both short and medium range, as well as helicopter drones will be presented as part of the first Army-2015 International Forum," the ministry's press release read.
In December 2014, Russian Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu said that the Russian military received 179 new UAVs in 2014, which was "almost as many as we received in all the previous years."
Establishment and equipment of troops with unmanned aerial vehicle complexes is one of the priorities of construction and development of the Armed Forces.
In May 2014, the Russian Defense Ministry said it would spend about $9.2 billion on acquiring new drones and training military personnel to operate UAVs before 2020.
