    Thailand and Vietnam express their interest in Russia's unmanned aerial vehicles, Deputy Director of Russia's state arms exporter Rosoboronexport Sergey Goreslavsky said Friday.

    GELENDZHIK (Russia) (Sputnik) — Southeast Asian countries are interested in Russia's unmanned aerial vehicles (UAV), Deputy Director of Russia's state arms exporter Rosoboronexport Sergey Goreslavsky said Friday.

    "We currently see sustained interest in technology including the Orlan UAV. Fruitful talks on this subject took place during the recent Army-2016 forum. We had a delegation from Thailand… the same subject is discussed with Vietnam," Goreslavsky said at the Gidroaviasalon 2016 international exhibition in Russia's Black Sea town of Gelendzhik.

    The Orlan-10 UAVs could be used in adverse terrain, including mountainous areas. A command point for such drones can control four vehicles simultaneously.
