Anti-Junta Fighters Drop Drone Mixtape From Sagaing

A montage of drone dropped munition and drone combat operations cut together by Anti-Junta forces conducting guerilla operations in the Sagaing region of Myanmar.


It would be very simple to look at this video and think that the Anti-Junta fighters are taking a page out of the Ukrainian's playbook. For years though, we've known about the threat of drone dropped munitions on the battlefield. This threat first emerged on the battlefields of Iraq and Syria during the reign of the Islamic State, who weaponized drones to great effect against both the Iraqi military and all factions who opposed them in Syria.


The Ukrainians also quickly adopted this method of conducting warfare, only it was far more widespread due to their ease of access to commercial drones and 3D printing systems that enabled them to alter the devices to carry and drop even heavier loads.


The DoD in the United States has been quietly working on a solution to this problem for almost a decade now, but it doesn't appear that they've come up with much of a solution. The current through process is indoctrinated in C-IED warfare, with companies making electronic counter-measures that fire out a cone of jamming signals that need to be consistently aimed at the moving device. Unfortunately, most of the tests of this style of anti-drone systems haven't proven to be too effective.


It's a brave new world of warfare we're entering.
