    Two drones shoot downed by the Ukrainan Forces, both from Russian side supplied by Israel

    The first drone was shot down by Aerorozvidka, a special reconnaissance unit of the Ukrainian forces, not far from Luhansk, in eastern Ukraine, on 8 May. A battle ensued over the next two days as Ukrainian troops tried to retrieve the wreckage.

    Russia licensed the Searcher technology from Israel for manufacture by the Ural Works of Civil Aviation with the name Forpost. Gressel said it was the most advanced drone Russia had in current service, costing up to $6m (£3.8m) each.

    As Ukrainian experts were picking this drone apart, the Dnipro-1 battalion announced on Thursday that it had shot down another drone, which looked to be of the same make. Markian Lubkivsky, of the Ukrainian security services, said he believed the drone had been manufactured in 2013 at the Ural plant.

    They were delivered early 2005 I think.. Israel almost dropped most military relationships with Russia

    This is her air battles. Drones lose or intercept control signal, almost daily. Yesterday, for example, militants shot down a drone of the OSCE.
