Metinvest hands over a batch of drones worth UAH 4 million to the Ukrainian military
Metinvest had handed over Sirko Reconnaissance UAVs, DJI Mavic 3T drones and FPV drones with a total cost of UAH 4 million to the Ukrainian military.
The announcement was published on the company website.
The aid was transferred as part of the Steel Front initiative. It is reported that 250 FPV drones, 5 DJI Mavic 3T drones and 3 Sirko drones were transferred.
The drones were received by the fire support company of the A3719 military unit.
“Metinvest Group has been consistently providing drones to Ukraine’s defenders. This has made the company one of the largest private business suppliers of UAVs to the army. However, we are not pursuing this status. Our main goal is to be the backbone of Ukraine and do everything we can to ensure a quick victory. I am confident that this batch of aid will be useful to our defenders,” said Oleksandr Vodoviz, Head of Chief Executive Officer Project Office of Metinvest Group.
In July, Militarnyi reported that Sirko UAVs by Skyassist had been launched into mass production.
Currently, the Ministry of Defense has no plans to supply Sirko UAVs, but there is an opportunity to purchase them with volunteer funds.
In addition to handing over the drones, Metinvest is also engaged in manufacturing weapon mock-ups.
At the beginning of September, it was reported that 250 mock-ups of artillery installations and radar were transferred to the Defense Forces.
Located along the entire front line, well-camouflaged mock-ups mislead Russian aerial reconnaissance units that are guiding missile and artillery strikes.
Moreover, the high quality of performance does not make it possible to recognize a false target, even for operators of the Lancet loitering munition, who come very close to it.
It is also reported that the company has handed over 37 buggies of its own production to the Defense Forces.
