Kalashnikov Group, the renowned Russian arms manufacturer famous for designing the world's most widely used assault rifle, has announced the launch of a new division dedicated to the production of loitering munitions.

In a statement, Kalashnikov Group declared the launch of a new UAV production division.

The newly established division within Kalashnikov will primarily focus on manufacturing loitering munitions. These drones are deployed to identify targets before being detonated for high-precision destruction.

“The main task of the division is the production of complexes with guided loitering munitions. The complexes are designed for high-precision destruction of remote single and group enemy ground targets,” Kalashnikov Group said in a statement.

“In 2024, we will be able to increase by several times the number of UAVs produced in our traditional niche – loitering munitions and reconnaissance drones,” said President of Kalashnikov Group, Alan Lushnikov.
