Can drones compensate for ammo shortages on the battlefield: ISW assessment

Ukrainian military personnel are increasingly using drones to attack the enemy at the front.

This information was reported by analysts from the American Institute for the Study of War, URA-Inform reports.  

However, drones will not be able to fully compensate for the shortage of ammunition, noted analysts at the American Institute for the Study of War.

«Ukrainian forces have partially alleviated the current artillery ammunition shortage by using first-person-view (FPV) unmanned aerial vehicles to suppress attacks by Russian infantry and armored vehicles, although artillery systems can deliver much more powerful strikes than munitions dropped by drones.&#187 ;, — noted at the Institute.

In addition, analysts noted that Ukrainian FPV drones can probably temporarily disable enemy armored vehicles during a combat operation, but they are unlikely to completely destroy armored vehicles. At the same time, electronic warfare systems and increased armor on armored vehicles can also make it more difficult for FPV drones to strike certain targets.

«Ukraine's ability to repel mechanized attacks with FPV drones is a partial mitigation, but the lack of artillery deprives Ukrainian forces of the ability to quickly and in large numbers destroy armored vehicles», — noted in ISW.

We recall that it was previously reported that the United States gave a disappointing forecast for the war in Ukraine: the US general said that there would be.
