Valerii Riabykh, a military expert and development director at Defense Express, says that the American company Fortem Technologies has adapted drones that can destroy Shahed-136

He shared this information with Espreso TV. 

"The American DroneHunter F700 has been in service with the Ukrainian Armed Forces for a long time and has proven itself. We are talking about the State Border Guard Service, where they are deployed to protect our airspace and borders. The drone operates in a simple way and was developed as part of the anti-drone warfare in wartime. The key upgrade that DroneHunter F700 received was its increased resistance to Russian electronic warfare equipment, which poses significant problems for our drones," explained Riabykh.

According to a military expert, the American company Fortem Technologies has adapted drones to catch Shahed-136s, which weigh about 200 kg.

"DroneHunter F700 is based on artificial intelligence. You need to set the sector where there is a threat, and they automatically take off, choosing a target and tactics. The DroneHunter F700 is armed with a net that blocks the engine from working with the propeller. After that, the target falls to the ground," Riabykh added.

  • On January 27, 2023, the head of the Ministry of Digital Transformation, Mykhailo Fedorov, announced that six systems to protect energy facilities from enemy drones had arrived in Ukraine. They were developed using modern American technologies.
  • The regional military administrations are working to ensure and expand the network of mobile groups to combat drone strikes and effectively counter Russian attacks.
  • Ukraine has handed over more than 2,000 drones to the logistics forces, including reconnaissance drones, ‘kamikaze’ UAVs, and reusable bombs.
