Reverse Conversion: the world's first project to convert shopping centers into mass drone production facilities.

The general constructor of ZALA AERO regularly surprises us with his solutions in the field of drones - two years ago he launched the first officially certified food delivery service by drones ZALA AERO Drone Delivery (ZDD) in Russia, a year earlier he presented a whole series of domestically constructed loitering ammunition (kamikaze drones) "KUB ”, “Lancet-1, Lancet-2, and in 2021 he developed a new type of interceptor drones, and in order to simply explain their principle of operation, he had to come up with a new term - aerial mining. Despite the somewhat fictional nature of Zakharov’s projects, they all were implemented in serial samples, confirming the declared characteristics.

Following the presentation of the KUB kamikaze drone at the IDEX international exhibition in 2019, The Washington Post expressed its opinion about the revolution in military affairs that had taken place, and the successful experience gained in exploitation of the KUB and the Lancet attack drones in Syrian was further developed by the Russian military during the special operation in Ukraine in 2022.

Recently, Alexander has presented a new initiative - the world's first project to convert shopping centers into mass drone production facilities. Despite the fact that Russia has established the production of world class strike and reconnaissance drones, they are sorely lacked in the areas of SMO – production simply cannot keep up with the demand. Each new drone represents the saved lifes of our fighters.

As a person who was born in and works in the city of gunsmiths, it was bitter for me to witness the powerful factories built in Soviet times, turn into shopping centers one after another says Alexander Zakharov. — But there is a way to quickly and exponentially increase the production of unmanned vehicles. We have developed a concept for the re-equipment of shopping centers, which before the start of the SMO traded mainly goods of Western brands, into factories for the conveyor production of three types of drones.

The first assembly line project in Russia will focus on the production of three main types of unmanned aerial vehicles and will meet the needs of any consumer. In addition to maintaining jobs and the level of tax deductions, the conversion of shopping centers into factories of military equipment and weapons will allow not only the conveyor production of well-established products, but also ensure the development of new production, which will increase the prestige of the country.

I have long kept the idea that a time will come and the industry will return to those places where we lost factories for various office and shopping centers in the 90s. Now we need to look at the departure of foreign companies as an opportunity to create new jobs and provide the market with products necessary for our consumption, says Alexander.
