US May Supply Ukrainian Forces With Miniature Kamikaze Drones

The Biden administration is considering providing Ukraine with US-made AeroVironment Switchblade miniature-sized loitering munitions, two congressional officials briefed on the matter told NBC News on March16.

The officials told the outlet that the White House is currently considering supplying Ukraine with Switchblades, as part of a new package of military aid. However, they noted that no decisions on the matter have been made, yet.

There are two available variants of the loitering munition, the Switchblade 300 and the 600. The 300 was designed to target personnel and unarmored vehicles. It has a range of 10 kilometers and an endurance of 10 minutes. The larger 600 was designed to destroy armored vehicles, like battle tanks. This version has a range of 80 kilometers and an endurance of up to 20 minutes.

Both the Switchblade 300 and 600 are equipped with optical guidance systems. The miniature kamikaze drones can be programmed to automatically strike targets, and can loiter around their targets until the time is right to strike.

The US have been stepping up its military support for the Kiev government since the beginning of the Russian special military operation in Ukraine on February 24.

The Switchblade system is known to be in service with the US Special Operations Command. Last year, the UK also invested in the system.

US special operation forces used Switchblade 300 loitering munitions extensively in Syria, not only against ISIS but also against government force.

The Syrians hunted down these munitions with shot guns and hand-held jamming systems. They were even able to capture many of them in an excellent condition using just fine nets. Some of the captured Switchblade munitions were handed over to the Russian military.

The US will likely end up supplying Ukraine with Switchblade loitering munitions. The system poses a real threat. Nevertheless, the Russian military will likely use the tactics we saw in Syria to neutralize this threat.

Actually Scoobs, the most able and professional Ukrainian Army unit in Donbass Basin – the Ukrainian 95th Air-mobile/Para Brigade – got destroyed last nite. An unprecedented Russian shelling barrage all nite decimated them. The Brigade was destroyed by morning. Gone.

That’s the big difference between Ukranian reports and Russian reports. They don’t spoonfeed baby food to their units by pretending that they’re winning. Because they don’t compromise the integrity of their forces by pulling that type of fake Russian propaganda garbage. Everyone knew that unit was in trouble since last week. You’re not saying anything I don’t already know.

BabylonGardens

So Scoobs, you are admitting the Ukrainian 95th Air Para Brigade, who were basis of Ukrainian forces strong-point in Donbas Basin got destroyed in 8 hours then.

Another source of big money for the ashkenazi US ruled military complex. In Syria the shotguns were preferred to shot down those crap flying drones. But big numbers may cause looses for the russians.

Weapons and munitions come in pallets and crates from west – via Poland/ Slovakia/ Hungary – hit convoys crossing border. The western trucks with “humanitarian aid” are full of munitions. Everyone learnt these NATO tactics in Syria.

A lot of humanitarin aid is comming in. Ukra older conskripts are comming in. The roads and trains are full of refugees. Weapons and ammo too.

Workers at Pisa airport in Italy stopped a load of weapons to Ukraine. Pisa is near the infamous Camp Darby, where drunk american slobs leave and at night go around trying to rape girls. These worms are despised by everyone in Italy.

Oh and the weapons were package as Red Cross humanitarian cargo.

BabylonGardens

No surprises! US used Italian air bases to attack Yugoslavia in 1999. Bombing Belgrade and Podgorica. NATO is not good for Europe, it is a means for US to occupy and control Europe : (

Im sure USA dont need drugs.

USA is a big tradepartner for Ukraine.

What does Ukraine export to USA?

The keystone of Ukrainian exports to the United States were ferrous metals and articles (61.4%), fats and oils of animal or vegetable origin (5.7%), ores, slags and ashes (4.8%), nuclear reactors and boilers (2.6%), machinery, electrical machinery (2.3%) and aircraft (2.1%).

Clyde

Nuclear reactors exported from the Ukraine to the US? Westinghouse was exporting US reactors to the Ukraine.

Actually Ukraine, Belarus, Poland, Germany and several others should be moved East. The Russia should leave to Russia.

It makes no sense to go back in time as You do. If anything Ukrain should go back to Denikin in 1923. Here Russia just before that even as the only one lost WW1 three times.

Old maos and history books shows it well.

Surely Russia knows they are at war with the U.S. Ukraine is just the battle ground. As long as Russia allows the U.S. to fight with their proxies they will just get bogged down and lose just like Afghanistan.

A Lot of tax paying money is going to waste in Ukraine,I mean every military personnel or anyone with some sort of understanding of military warfares knows the Ukrainians military stand no chance. The Russian control the sky,they have saterlite observing Ukraine and they could stile anywhere in Ukraine without being in the airspace. I can see our convoy of weapons going to enter Ukraine with the Russian military notice it ,if it by civilians car then we could see area around the nation that border Ukraine being bomb.i could use some of that money then seeing it being waste in Ukraine for a lost cause.

Too late Biden. The Ukraine is basically a triangle of major cities to the east. And Russian forces are concentrated on the triangle arc – Mariupol, Odessa and Kiev. The west is just a shit-stan west of the Dnieper. With provinces that arguably may or may not belong to Poland, Hungary and Romania.
