Ukraine reveals terrifying stealth drone ‘The Punisher’ that could strike Russian forces if Putin invades

UKRAINE special operations forces yesterday demonstrated the deadly firepower of the stealthy “Punisher” drone.

The point of “undetectable” electrical engineering lies in waiting time Russian invaders after being honed for six years by military engineers.

The drone – with a 7.5-foot wingspan – carries three high-explosive bombs that can wipe out troops and vehicles within 50 meters.

They loitered for hours at 1,300 feet above the battlefield up to 30 miles behind enemy lines, directed by a pilot on the ground with a laptop computer.

A smaller spy drone called the Specter flies along to identify the target before the Punisher arrives to kill.

Bombs are dropped automatically once locked into a position and can be set to detonate the area with shrapnel or create a fireball with an incendiary explosion.

Onboard cameras at the bow of the larger ship recorded the impact of the bomb to check the accuracy of the mission.

Ukrainian builders UAE Dynamics demonstrated the catapult-launched aircraft to The Sun’s team yesterday on a clearing outside Kyiv to demonstrate its incredible stealth capabilities.

The light gray ultralight aircraft looks like a remote-controlled toy – but has enjoyed a lot of success following pro-Russian lines for six years.

Despite the crystal clear skies, the £150,000 125 mph drone appears to have vanished as its whisper-quietly recharging engine powering it is miles away from its location. we are hundreds of feet away.

It could barely be seen or heard as it began a bombardment with a dummy device plunging into a nearby target area.

UAE Dynamics engineer Eugene Bulatsev, 35, told The Sun: “The strength of this weapon is its stealth.

“It caused havoc behind the pro-Russian front lines in the Donbas for many years because the enemy did not know what attacked them.

“It’s relatively small and light enough that radar can’t detect it and you can’t see or hear it while it’s in the air, which makes it a nightmare on the battlefield.

“Furthermore, it can drop three bombs at once or hit three separate targets then return to base to reload and return to battle within minutes.

“We Ukrainians realized that we needed a weapon like this when faced with so much fire over a long period of time and developed and improved it ourselves for six years.

“And now we have a unique weapon that we can use to fight and fight back if they invade.”

‘FAR TOY’

Ukraine special officials say the drones have carried out hundreds of successful missions since 2016 – and have never been shot down.

“The Russians sent a special piece of hardware worth millions of dollars to try to counter our threat – so we sent a drone and destroyed it,” says Bulatsev.

“Three-man crews operating our punters are also hard to find as the weapons are packed into four boxes small enough to fit in a 4×4 or immobile car.

“There’s nothing else like this in the world.”

The drones will face off against a bunch of Vladmir Putin’s favorite high-tech “toys of war” including robotic tanks, x-winged “sky mine” drones and amphibious tanks. fly.

A defense source said: “If war breaks out, a whole host of new technologies will enter the war.

“The Russians have firepower, but the Ukrainians will want to wage guerrilla warfare with weapons combined with stealth.

“They’ve been working hard to improve their defense since 2014 and won’t be a pushover.”
