The Times: Great Britain will hand over Malloy T150 drones to Ukraine
According to military sources cited by The Times, these are drones manufactured by the British company Malloy Aeronautics. The Malloy T150 model is controlled via a laptop, has a range of about 65 kilometers, a working time of 36 minutes and can carry loads weighing up to 68 kg.
In 2020, drones were tested by members of the Royal Marines in various weather conditions. It is not clear how many such drones the British armed forces currently have and whether those that will be handed over to Ukraine will come from the Ministry of Defense’s own resources or will be purchased specifically for Ukrainians.
The Times daily reported – citing sources – that Ukraine will receive between 20 and 30 such machines.
