Aided by Israel, Russia is building a $9 billion drone air force. Or rather, Russia was building a $9 billion air force.

Six years ago, Russian ground forces, who were invading the sovereign state of Georgia on their southern border, found themselves flummoxed by Georgia's collection of unmanned aerial vehicles -- commonly referred to as "drones."

Within a year of the war's end, Russia had inked a $53 million deal to purchase two Bird Eye-400, eight I-View Mk150, and two Searcher Mk.2 drones from Israel Aerospace Industries.

A year later, Russia upped its purchase order by an additional $400 million worth of drones.
