Sudan army uses drones in defense of its Khartoum headquarters
Drones play a limited but growing role in the war
One of the final areas of Sudan Armed Forces control in Khartoum is a roughly 2 km2 area around army headquarters and the University of Khartoum which adjoins another SAF-controlled area of roughly the same size on the northern side of the Blue Nile.
The two areas areas connect by a SAF-controlled rail bridge.
An attempt by the army to reinforce and resupply this besieged pocket failed spectacularly in July when the RSF ambushed and wiped out a large SAF relief column in Bahri. Since then, the defenders at General Command have fought on without reinforcements, under constant attack from artillery, snipers, and infantry.
SAF are using artillery of their own to hold the enemy at bay, tanks, technicals, airstrikes, and snipers placed in downtown high-rises.
Drones are also playing a role in the defense of General Command, according to the below geolocated videos of recent drone strikes.
