Volunteer-Built Drones: 3500 Delivered to Ukrainian Armed Forces

DONETSK OBLAST, UKRAINE – DECEMBER 19: A Ukrainian FPV drone pilot of the 24th Mechanized Brigade trains on December 19, 2023 in Donetsk Oblast, Ukraine.


They construct batches of drones for the Armed Forces of Ukraine on a voluntary basis. According to information on their website, the Ukrainian military has received 3500 7-10 inch FPV drones since the beginning of their project.

They manufacture Kamikaze, Bomber, and Scout drones. The main target of the assault seems to be the unique Russian BMPT “Terminator” tank, renowned for its formidable abilities in combat.

This 53-ton, 23-foot-long armored vehicle is equipped with a variety of weapons, such as twin 30 mm guns, four high-speed Ataka anti-tank missiles with a nearly four-mile range, two AG-17D grenade launchers, and a coaxial 7.62 mm PKTM machine gun.

It is believed that the Russian army had only 10 of the vehicles at the beginning of Russia’s full-scale invasion of Ukraine on February 24, 2022.

The Ukrainian drones skillfully navigated the hangar before taking out the prized Terminator tank and other assets.

Russian military equipment destroyed includes a BMP-3 infantry fighting vehicle, two T-72 tanks, and various military trucks and vehicles.

Since the beginning of the invasion in Ukraine, Russia has suffered significant losses of armored vehicles. The UK Defense Ministry reported that 2,600 main battle tanks and 4,900 other armored vehicles were destroyed.
