The Conflict Intelligence Team reported that Russia may have exhausted its supply of Iranian-made Shahed-136 kamikaze drones.
The group reported this in its summary of military operations in Ukraine for November 29-30.
Analysts note that the Russian army stopped actively using the Shahed-136 around November 18.
"Probably, most of the drones purchased in Iran have expired, and the delivery of a new batch or the start of a large-nodal assembly line assembly of these drones in Russia is expected," CIT said in a statement.
- In early November, Ukrainian intelligence reported that the Russian Federation was purchasing more than 200 Shahed-136, Mohajer-6, and Arash-2 combat drones from the Iranians.
- In total, the Russians used more than 400 Iranian Shahed-136 drones against Ukraine.
