The Armed Forces of Ukraine will receive drones from the German company Quantum-Systems.

Vector UAVs were chosen by the Ministry of Defense of Ukraine. The delivery of the UAV is financed from German funds with the support of the German Ministry of Defense, Quantum Systems informed.


Some of the ordered drones are already in use in Ukraine. However, most of the order is in the "preparation and processing" stage and will be completed after the training of Ukrainian UAV operators. 

Quantum-Systems clarified that training in the use of the Vector reconnaissance drone usually takes no more than four days. For security reasons, no further details about the quantity and timing of deliveries will be disclosed until the transfer is completed.
