The Ukrainian military received H10 Poseidon Mk II unmanned complexes from the benefactors.

Three complexes, which include nine drones, were transferred by the former president Petro Poroshenko.

Volunteers from the NGO “SPRAVA HROMAD” converted DAF Leyland trucks into control vehicles.

“Now we have a control vehicle, all-wheel drive and diesel, comfortable chairs for work, Starlink for data transfer, an autonomous cabin heater, generators and charging stations,” volunteer Yurii Biryukov explained the details of the transfer.

Poseidon drones operators training takes place in a classified modern training center of the Armed Forces of Ukraine.

Three H10 Poseidon Mk II systems cost benefactors UAH 45,763,823.

These drones manufactured by the Swarmly company can strengthen the Ukrainian artillery. They can conduct missions for all brigades that are in the same area of responsibility.

The H10 Poseidon Mk II UAV has a range of up to 150 kilometers, altitude – up to 4000 meters. Cruising speed 75 km/h.

They are equipped with EW protection, have Israeli optics and a thermal imaging camera.

It is a mid-range unmanned aerial vehicle that provides portability and the ability to perform covert operations. H10 can be transported by SUV or pickup truck and prepared for operation in less than 10 minutes.

It is designed as a high-wing monocoque airframe with electric motor and pusher propeller, as well as four stationary mounted VTOL electric motors and propellers.

This design has the advantage of flight safety, as the VTOL system is used not only for takeoff, landing and hanging, but also for emergency recovery during flight instead of an emergency parachute.
