At the present time the servicemen of the EW (Electronic Warfare) units learn to use the new equipment in the Interservice centre of UAV of the Russian Ministry of Defence. The Russian-made Leer-3 is especially designed to perform electronic warfare missions.
     
"New specially equipped Leer-3 unmanned aerial vehicles will be received by electronic warfare troops until the end of 2015," Gordeev said.

Russia launched a major rearmament program in 2008. The state armaments program intends to modernize up to 70 percent of military hardware. Total program costs are estimated to reach about $379 billion. Some $5.8 billion is reserved for drone development and acquisition.

Leer-3 is a drone equipped for electronic warfare. Developed by the JSC Concern Radio-Electronic Technologies (KRET) in 2014, the aircraft is designed to locate electromagnetic emission sources and suppress wireless communications, including cellphones, within a 3.7-mile radius.
