“Unmanned aerial vehicles have become the signature of American offensive military operations. While far from perfect, drones are now critical to achieving US goals in an effective and efficient manner.  But how do the nations considered the United States’ closest ‘near peers,’ Russian and China, compare in this critical capability? While both countries are making strides in developing their own combat drones, their technology is significantly behind and it will take years or likely decades for them to reach the stage the United States is at now. That reality is not lost on the Russian and Chinese military-industrial complexes, which have both taken a practical and realistic approach to drone research and development.”
