    waiting for the updated analysis based on Ukraine- Russia war. I bet both sides are using their drones. to what effeteness that’s what I am waiting for the new video to tell us.

  3. Bear G on May 4, 2022 at 6:27 pm

    Drones only been used 3 or so at a time ..need to use these like a strike force and destroy your enemies or put fear in them about driving anything..at all…

  4. Bo Soerjadi on May 4, 2022 at 6:28 pm

    How susceptible are drone optical sensors to getting damaged by handheld laser torches? These cost at most a few hundred dollars each and can easily be distributed en masse.
    Human pilots wouldn’t like them either.

  5. Natey Nate on May 4, 2022 at 6:29 pm

    No drones aren’t unstoppable they can be hacked and taking over by other countries and turned against you

  6. LAKSHYA PRATAP SIGH on May 4, 2022 at 6:32 pm

    I THINK INDIA ALSO HAS DRONE SAT COOMUNICATION CALLED GAGAN SATCOM

  7. Thor 808 on May 4, 2022 at 6:32 pm

    Drones can be downed by US military easily.
    But, drones are nightmares for Russians. Even a cheap Turkish drones proven superior to Russian military technology by Ajerbaizan (sorry Armenians, don’t trust Russian technology) and Ukrainians. Ukrainians beat craps out of Russian army. Putin is going broke! Condolences for Russian army, get rid of your dictator!

    SKYNET approves this video 🦾🦾🦾🦾

    Putin to chuj

  10. BdogFinal14 on May 4, 2022 at 6:35 pm

    Drones are game changers and modern militaries that don’t adapt to them will come out on the losing side.

  11. Maxwell Benz on May 4, 2022 at 6:37 pm

    Follow up video with Ukraine factored in?

  12. Robert Allen on May 4, 2022 at 6:39 pm

    soon be robots as well trouble is your soft underbelly a few men and oil, electric, and computeres can be taken out at will, modern ecconomies cannot fight wars without going under

  13. lanney gross on May 4, 2022 at 6:40 pm

    Thanks to turkey drones have been great for urkraine

  14. gulshan xxx on May 4, 2022 at 6:42 pm

    Bayraktar TB2

  15. abbynady on May 4, 2022 at 6:42 pm

    only drone can fight drone

  16. OsmanOsmanHan on May 4, 2022 at 6:43 pm

    This video didn’t age well. Slava Ukraini 🇺🇦

  17. mathew.music on May 4, 2022 at 6:45 pm

    Solution against drones: Rheinmetall.

  18. Something Else on May 4, 2022 at 6:46 pm

    Re title
    Ask the Russians

  19. MarxAlex on May 4, 2022 at 6:47 pm

    I used to support Israel unconditionally but after their behaviour against Armenia I’m less enthusiastic. If you are going to supply weaponry against Christians don’t expect support.

  20. Dennis Leighton on May 4, 2022 at 6:48 pm

    I would like to see an analysis of the use of the Turkish Bayraktar TB2s in the Ukraine conflict, where it appears to have been spectacularly successful against the massive Russian invasion.

  21. Tirpi on May 4, 2022 at 6:48 pm

    It seems the only people that use drones are the only people that can stop drones. Reminds me of when the Germans countered magnetic mines but nobody would ever use the mines they wanted to counter.

  22. lanney gross on May 4, 2022 at 6:49 pm

    Hey turkey, urkraine needs many more bayractar like now thank u turkey 🇹🇷

  23. Mitjitsu on May 4, 2022 at 6:51 pm

    Judging by what’s going on Ukraine the most feared weapons are surveillance drones and artillery.

  24. Mac Mcleod on May 4, 2022 at 6:53 pm

    This video aged fairly well. But Ukraine had a lower budget. And the pantsir didn’t appear to function all that well.

  25. Ragnar Rune on May 4, 2022 at 6:53 pm

    No it’s stoppable https://youtu.be/pb5_F4_Eod8

  26. lanney gross on May 4, 2022 at 6:54 pm

    The drone are especially effective in urkraine, just ask Russian aggressors

  27. Piotr on May 4, 2022 at 6:55 pm

    This didn’t age well

  28. Justin Joens on May 4, 2022 at 6:56 pm

    I’m sure small drones integrated into small units will happen.

    Keeping them small and frolific will likely prevent expensive countermeasures being used against them. And I’ sure they’d give a massive advantage to any small force.
    Be it a 24/7 birds eye veiw, or in the case of weaponized drones the ability to directly attack/suppress hard to reach opponents. Not to mention that having a weaponized drone would probably prevent any opponents from feeling safe in any open-air cover

  29. Armenian Crusader on May 4, 2022 at 6:58 pm

    Yes they are stoppable

    Who thinks drones are unstoppable after the Ukraine and Tigray wars.

  31. Naheem Ibrahim on May 4, 2022 at 7:00 pm

    Offence is the beat defence
    Someone should make anti drone
    Drones.

  32. Byte on May 4, 2022 at 7:00 pm

    9:54 I guess the russian/ukrain war changed that. It especially showed the defencive role of drones.

  33. Gerald O'Hare on May 4, 2022 at 7:03 pm

    Drones are a cheap game changer. Especially if they become long range. Like a flock of birds that can spread apart then regroup. Don’t make the mistake of thinking they won’t improve.

  34. Darren Malin on May 4, 2022 at 7:03 pm

    ask the Russians lol

  35. Bear G on May 4, 2022 at 7:03 pm

    Drones are awesome…just the price is getting to high..ok.here is something to think.about .remember the movie guardians of the galaxy 2..when the one screen showed 200 pilot s flying there attack craft. They where all drones…so now if you did that today ..20 or 50 drones and attack a convoy..

  36. Bear G on May 4, 2022 at 7:03 pm

    Or. Hack the drones. And make it attack its.transmitter..???

  37. Sebastian Andreas Gruber-Kersting on May 4, 2022 at 7:03 pm

    It is obvious, we will see autonomous anti-drone drones in the near future, since once a drone as a target is assigned, following and starting a light weight AA-missile needs little AI to perform well. Just the finding and clolsing in might involve ground personal somewhere. One great advantage anti-done drones will offer, enormous potential in air combat capabilities, while G-forces are only limited by construction, not by what pilots can stand. So even AA-guns and very light short range missiles might do the job as weaponary for an "interceptor drone".

  38. Lord Vader on May 4, 2022 at 7:05 pm

    Day by day, I need an updated version of this video. The TB2 is doing amazing is Ukraine. Imagine what something like a Reaper could do in a situation like that.

  39. SpruceMaroose on May 4, 2022 at 7:06 pm

    Bayaktar

  40. David Bruce on May 4, 2022 at 7:06 pm

    Drones can be do designed anything manned aircraft can do and you don’t risk the life of a pilot.

  41. Lord Vader on May 4, 2022 at 7:08 pm

    Putin must have watched this video a dozen times by now 🤣

  42. Brian Nielsen on May 4, 2022 at 7:10 pm

    You can produce drones much cheaper and the operator of the drones life won’t be in danger.

  43. Narwaok on May 4, 2022 at 7:11 pm

    Wish you’ve talked more about Turkish drones.

  44. Cpt. Mystic Stirling: Memes & Gaming 😜 on May 4, 2022 at 7:13 pm

    So drones are no skill and cheap units? Already sounds broken in conventional warfare

  45. Envy's Art on May 4, 2022 at 7:15 pm

    Drones are not necessarily perfect weapons, they just line up so nicely with a tank-heavy Russian juggernaut.

    Although confirmed drone kills on state of the art anti-air is ironic, and maybe indicates to me a level of disrespect for the danger posed by drones

  46. Carl Engeler on May 4, 2022 at 7:15 pm

    Would it be possible to make an update to this in the Ukraine war? A short would be enough but it would be very interesting!

  47. lanney gross on May 4, 2022 at 7:17 pm

    Flood the sky’s around eastern urkraine with drones and blow the shit out of Russian aggressors

  48. Darren.E on May 4, 2022 at 7:19 pm

    You put too much faith in Russian military equipment.

  49. Bruce MacKinnon on May 4, 2022 at 7:20 pm

    Not unstoppable, a lot go down but much more expendable.

  50. Aver Raiher on May 4, 2022 at 7:21 pm

    Multi-layer SAM network doesn’t seem to work for Russians in Ukraine against TB2.
