I'm not saying they'll be a breeze... Ofcourse intelligent enemy can even train rats to be granade carriers.No Swarm drones are indeed difficult to counter , first of all these swarm drones will be intelligent thy know how to react and what to do. they will be interconnected and can do Co Operative engagement , if they fly in high altitudes its difficult to shoot down with the guns. in a swarm different kinds of drones can be used , some of them may be just or creating a target for enemies but the real drones may be somewhere else . They can take on vast areas of enemy. just one swarm with 1000Drones can take out 100MBTs , if we shoot down 750 Drones but still the remaining 250 can destroy MBTs.
they can overwhelm airdefence systems with sheer numbers each drone can mimic different things , when we are in busy in countering swarms just one missile is enough to destroy the Air Defense systems , and we can do whatever we want just need to code the AI for appropriate Missions . when mass producing they wil be pretty much cheep also .
Still a combo of fragmentation airburst granades & shotgun buckshots can be much MUCH cheaper counter to blunt them to significant degree, especially when they'll have to close in for hit. 1000 swarm-drones vs 100 shotguns & training regimen have heavily skewed cost ratio.
Armenia was hardly a proper case-study.
