20 PD-2 drones and 10 ground stations to them is certainly not 3 Bayraktar TB2, but can be more useful than strike UAVs. The purchase of equipment worth UAH 300,000,000, or $8.5 million, was announced by Taras Chmut, the director of the Come Back Alive Charitable Foundation.

According to Taras Chmut, this is the most expensive project in the history of the Foundation. All 10 will fall into the hands of experienced, professional pilots. These are drones of operational and tactical level, they cannot be used by incompetent hands and for any purposes. PD-2 will adjust strategically important strikes, which will be carried out, in particular, by OTR-21 Tochka and HIMARS Multiple Rocket Launchers.

We will remind, we already wrote about the Ukrainian complex UKRSPECSYSTEMS PD-2, when the Ukrainian IT community raised $1,000,000 to purchase such a system in just one day.
