UAC's Chief Operating Officer Kyrylo Zabolotnyi told about the Ukrainian military's feedback on the Leleka LR drone

He said this on Espreso TV. 

"As of today, our system is being tested by various special forces units, and 100% of the feedback is positive. First of all, the military is trying to compare this system with its predecessor Leleka-100, but among other things, they emphasize the quality of the target image, which is quite different, the software, and the quality of communication channels. The feedback is generally positive," emphasizes Zabolotnyi.

Potential buyers of drones include the Ministry of Defense, the Ministry of Digital Transformation, the State Service for Special Communications and Information Protection, and volunteers.

Regarding contracts for the next year, the UAC director said that nothing has been signed yet, but negotiations are underway. He is convinced that the planned workload of the company will be one hundred percent.

If a UAV is damaged, they have a separate service center where, depending on the damage, drones are repaired from a week to a month.

UAC has also faced some problems, including a lack of high-quality production facilities, as it leases mostly old plants that still need to be restored. There is also a lack of experienced staff, so the company practices training from scratch at the enterprise, but this does not cover all vacancies.

About cooperation with the Czech company, Zabolotnyi said that many manufacturers abroad are reluctant to send components for drones to Ukraine, so cooperation with the Czech Republic makes this process easier.

  • On November 10, the Ukrainian-Czech company UAC presented the Leleka LR drone: it was developed based on the experience of the Russian-Ukrainian war with a focus on protection against enemy electronic warfare systems.
