    Even if you saw it coming (they dive onto you and can even attack with the sun behind them), these are able to project a shaped charge of molten metal hundreds of feet, and the anti personnel versions consist of more or less a giant claymore.

    These things are also small, so they don't show on radar, and they don't even have to swarm, they can loiter for hours (the fixed wing versions).

    Drones like these are reeking havoc in Armenia right now and its been suggested that the US military may not fare much better against them.

    There isn't a very effective way to counter them, its more of a layered defense with jammers, autonomous small missile batteries, and very expensive close in weapons systems.

    Here's one striking a bus, and another that literally flew into a bunker door. These are unmanned, but controlled by humans, the drones in the op are autonomous.

    They are loud as they make their final approach. The tech is from multiple sources, Israel, Turkey, China, etc.

    There are also autonomous drones that just prior to deployment have a gps grid setup to loiter. They search for targets and attack as needed, and jamming is not possible once they are deployed.

    Seems a man portable radar/motion detector flack delivery system should be feasible.

    The drone itself is a licensed design from a USA company. The software is Chinese.

    Im surprised that China bothered with a license, and that we gave it to them.

    The conventional wisdom is that China are ahead of the game as far as small drones.
