WASHINGTON: Leading US manufacturer of cutting-edge military surveillance drones made an announcement and urged the US government to allow the sale of two drones to Ukraine for just $1.
The powerful Grey Eagle and Reaper drones, which US forces have used to great effect in surveillance and targeted attacks over Afghanistan, Syria, Iraq, and other conflict zones, are being withheld from Ukraine, according to General Atomic Aeronautical Systems, which claims it has been pleading with Washington to give them to Ukraine for months.
It claimed that one of the most glaringly evident, force-improving technology Ukraine needs in its conflict with Russian forces is the drone, which can go great distances at medium heights.
Ukraine has received a number of tiny attack and surveillance drones from the US military, but none with the sophisticated engineering and long-range capabilities of General Atomic’s unmanned aircraft.
General Atomics CEO Linden Blue said in a statement that “from the outset of the Russian invasion, we began exploring for possibilities to react to the needs of Ukrainian forces with our equipment, including the MQ-9 Reaper and MQ-1C Gray Eagle.”
Educate Ukrainian operators without charging
According to him, the business has volunteered to educate Ukrainian operators without charging the US or Ukrainian governments anything.
And for a symbolic $1, the corporation was prepared to donate two of its own training planes as well as a ground control center and other equipment.
According to him, the cost of preparing and transporting the aircraft as well as setting up the operation to launch them over the battlefield would be borne by Ukraine or another party.
“The offer is a remarkable deal with no strings attached,” Blue said.
“All that is required is approval from the US government.”
“From our perspective, it is long past time to enable Ukrainian forces with the information dominance required to win this war,” he said
