ISW: The armed forces at the front have significantly more drones and better EW capabilities than the occupiers from the Russian Federation

The defense forces have specialized and centralized drone units in the composition of existing land units.

Russian military personnel complain that on the field of battle, the Ukrainian military has predominant capabilities of UAVs and ESB.

According to a report by the American Institute for the Study of War (ISW), one of them identified six points that relate to the disparity between Russian and Ukrainian drones. According to the military commander, first of all, the Armed Forces of Ukraine have a significant numerical advantage in drones with the ability to observe an object from a bird's-eye view. The blogger claims that Ukrainian assault groups have an advantage in 3-4:1 in the use of drones over Russian assault units, while Ukrainian mechanized groups have a 6-10:1 advantage in the use of drones over similar Russian units, — analysts note.

The same military commander emphasizes that Ukraine also has specialized and centralized drone units as part of existing ground units, which allows the Defense Forces to better integrate the capabilities of reconnaissance and strike drones into basic tactical maneuvers.

"Russian troops, on the contrary, do not have a centralized and organized system of drone units and adequate means of EW and radio-electronic intelligence (ER) to counter Ukrainian drones», — added ISW.

As the armed forces adapt and better integrate new technologies into their forces, occupying forces are likely to feel pressure to do the same, according to analysts. and maintain technological and tactical parity on the battlefield.

«This race between offense and defense and capacity building is the central element of the development of combat assets in modern warfare», — considered in ISW.
