“We will receive the Altius in combat configuration this Autumn,” said Krivoruchko. The Russian military now receives the Forpost and Inokhodets/Orion unmanned combat aerial vehicles (UCAVs), he added.

The Russian MoD signed contracts for Forpost-R and Inokhodets-RU/Sirius UCAVs and guided air-launched munitions for UCAVs at the Army 2021 defense show held in Kubinka near Moscow between August 22-28.

Krivoruchko previously said the military would receive the Inokhodets-RU UCAV in 2023.
