Ukraine is forming world's first UAV strike companies

Ukraine is forming the world's first strike companies of unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs).

The Ministry of Defense of Ukraine reports this on Telegram.

The creation of strike companies was approved by the Commander-in-Chief of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, General Valerii Zaluzhnyi, at the Staff meeting.

"Together with the Ministry of Defense of Ukraine, the General Staff of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, and the State Special Communications Service of Ukraine, within the framework of the "Army of Drones" project, a Coordination Headquarters was created with key ministries and services for the full implementation of the project. This is necessary to implement a number of key reforms and scale up the production of UAVs in order to provide them to the Defense Forces of Ukraine," the message reads.

The Ministry of Defense noted that the most professional service members who will lead the strike companies have already been selected. Each of them will receive drones and ammunition, Starlink, and other necessary equipment to defeat the enemy in hot spots.

The main partner for the training of strike companies is the Boryviter military school.


As part of the "Army of Drones" project, 1,711 drones have been contracted, and almost 1,000 of them have already been handed over to the Ukrainian military for Ukraine's defense.
