A new unmanned aerial vehicle, SHARK, by Ukrspecsystems has been launched into serial production, public activist and army support volunteer Serhiy Prytula has said on Facebook.
"There is a new addition to the Ukrainian "bird" family! Meet the new unmanned system, SHARK, by Ukrspecsystems! It is resistant to enemy EW systems, can conduct in-depth reconnaissance behind the front line and guide our long-range artillery systems (those HIMARS)," Prytula said.
He said that in July he attended SHARK's tests, "crossed his fingers and made a wish that the developers successfully take SHARK to mass production".
"They did! And finally launched it into mass production in Ukraine and Poland, which will better meet the needs of the Ukrainian army," said the volunteer.
Prytula added that his foundation has already contracted two SHARK complexes (four birds and two ground units) worth a total of UAH15.25 million.
After the Russian missile attack on 10 October, Ukrainians donated UAH352 million for kamikaze drones within a day instead of UAH100 million planned.
