The Vampire drones, manufactured in Ukraine, can carry up to 15 kg of various types of explosives. “They are equipped with a thermal camera, so they can attack enemies even at night,” says Deputy Prime Minister of Innovation, Education Development, Science and Technology and Digital Transformation Minister Mykhailo Fedorov in a video shared on his Twitter account.

According to him, the army can use these drones to destroy not only armored vehicles and tanks, but also enemy defences, fortifications and ammunition depots. “Now the Ukrainian army will be able to track down invaders much better,” he adds.
