“The drone can use 'machine vision' technology to focus the camera to carry out a bombing run. Without the operator's participation, it hovers over a certain square of the camera," the developers claim.

The Russian company Stratim was founded in 2022 and has little experience in the production of drones.

The Gulab quadcopter-bomber is in a pre-production state and has not been adopted by the Russian Ministry of Defense.

In Ukraine, "machine vision" technologies are used for the Lyuti attack drone, which has already proven itself with precision strikes on targets in Russia.
