Kalashnikov Sets up Loitering Munitions Manufacturing Facility

Kalashnikov Concern has established a new facility to manufacture guided loitering munitions.

The complexes are designed for high-precision destruction of remote single and group enemy ground targets, Rostec said in a release.

In addition to the UAVs themselves, the division will produce ground-based launchers, test vehicles, mobile command posts from the complexes for adjusting the firing of precision-guided munitions, and maintenance equipment for special-purpose equipment. Also, the division will carry out research and development work in various areas.

“After the technical re-equipment planned for this year, next year, in 2024, we will be able to increase several times the number of UAVs produced in our traditional niche – loitering ammunition, reconnaissance drones,” commented Alan Lushnikov, President of Kalashnikov Concern JSC. “We cannot announce the exact number and volumes, but the increase in the production of all special equipment will be multiple.”
