Border guards have drones that can destroy Shaheds

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.

Two Russian electronic warfare stations destroyed in Kursk region

Representatives of the Main Intelligence Directorate reported the hit of two expensive radar stations in Russia.

Two expensive Russian radar stations were damaged - the 55Zh6 Nebo radar and, probably, the Gamma-S1E radar.

Ukrainian Armed Forces destroyed Russian mobile command post

In the Donetsk region, the Special Operations Forces adjusted HIMARS fire at the occupiers' equipment. As a result, the enemy lost the command and control vehicle used to control its units. This was reported by the 3rd Detached Regiment of the Prince Sviatoslav the Brave Special Forces.

"Operators of the 3rd Regiment of the Special Operations Forces spotted the movement of a R-149 AKSh command and control vehicle in the Donetsk sector. The enemy was using the vehicle to control his units," the brigade said. "The Special Forces conducted additional reconnaissance activities and adjusted the HIMARS fire on the invading troops. As a result of the strike, the vehicle was completely destroyed.”

Japan hands over demining equipment to Ukraine

Pyrotechnic units clearing Ukrainian land of mines and unexploded ordnance have received forty pieces of demining equipment from Japan. This was reported by the press service of the Cabinet of Ministers of Ukraine.

This time, Ukraine received 20 pickup trucks, 20 station wagons, 50 ALIS metal detectors from JICA, as well as 150 containers of fire extinguishing liquid from Shabondama Soap Co., Ltd.

Earlier, 12 operational pyrotechnic vehicles purchased by UNICEF with the support of the Government of Japan and 30 trucks were handed over to the SES (as part of the Humanitarian Demining and Explosive Ordnance Disposal Capacity Development Projects).

The implementation of the Improvement of Humanitarian Demining Equipment project under the Grant Agreement for the Emergency Recovery Program between the government of Ukraine and the Japan International Cooperation Agency is scheduled to last until 2025.
