MOSCOW, January 11. /TASS/. A new batch of domestically-made unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) has arrived for the Russian military base in Armenia, the press office of Russia’s Southern Military District said on Monday.
"Modern domestically-made drones Takhion have entered service in the UAV unit of the Southern Military District’s military base located in the Republic of Armenia," the press office said in a statement.
