Current developments in military drones – Africa, Ukraine and Turkey

Online-Hearing (in german language) on january 25, 2023, 7 p.m.


In the current wars, the military uses drones with high-quality electronics and deadly ammunition. This could change the course of future conflicts dramatically. These weapons not only hit the enemy, but also terrorize the civilian population.

In this online hearing, we examine the current developments in the field of combat drones and show the dangers of armed drones using the examples of Africa, Ukraine and Turkey.
