There are many different types of drones that Ukraine could use against Russian forces. Some of the most common types include:
- Unmanned combat aerial vehicles (UCAVs): UCAVs are armed drones that are designed to carry out airstrikes against enemy targets. Some of the most well-known UCAVs include the MQ-9 Reaper and the Bayraktar TB2.
- Unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs): UAVs are unarmed drones that are used for surveillance and reconnaissance. They can be equipped with cameras and other sensors to gather information about enemy forces. Some of the most common UAVs include the DJI Mavic Pro and the Parrot Anafi.
- Loitering munitions: Loitering munitions are drones that are designed to loiter over an area for an extended period of time before attacking a target. They are often used to target enemy convoys or other moving targets. Some of the most well-known loitering munitions include the Switchblade 600 and the Harpy.
The type of drone that Ukraine chooses to use will depend on a number of factors, including the specific mission requirements, the availability of drones, and the level of training of the Ukrainian operators.
