Ukrainian naval drones: first details and fundraiser on United 24 (Updated! We have the first drone!)
The first details regarding the fleet of naval drones that Ukraine is going to build have become known, including the specifications of these devices. Fundraiser for the first 10 out of 100 planned attack naval air defense systems has begun on the United 24 website.
We are talking about those naval drones that performed very well during attacks on the bay of Sevastopol on October 29, 2022.
Such devices can participate in long-range maritime reconnaissance and coastal surveillance, escorting and supporting the traditional fleet, convoying merchant ships, zoning in artillery fire and inflicting fire damage on both moving and stationary targets.
The cost of one complex is about 10 million hryvnias. This amount includes: a drone equipped with an autopilot system, video subsystems, including night vision, special communication protected from the influence of enemy electronic warfare equipment, backup communication modules and a combat unit; ground autonomous control station; transportation and storage system; data center and some special surprises for our enemies.
“Today, Ukraine starts assembling the world’s first Naval Fleet of Drones!It will protect the waters of Ukrainian seas and also peaceful cities from cruise missiles launched by russian forces from their ships. It will unblock a corridor for civilian vessels that carry grain for the whole world. Join in!” says the United 24 website.
