The US Air Force has designed an all-new attack drone, 'Phoenix Ghost,' especially for the Ukrainian armed forces 121 of which will be sent to Kyiv in the coming days.
According to said Pentagon Press Secretary John F. Kirby, The Phoenix Ghost Tactical Unmanned Aerial System, is a system developed by the (US) Air Force in response to Ukrainian requirements.

Similar to 'Switchblade,' UAV

"Phoenix Ghost is a tactical, unmanned aerial system ... [it] provides similar capabilities to the Switchblade series of unmanned systems — similar capabilities, but not exact," said Kirby. At this time he was not willing to elaborate further on the capabilities of the Phoenix Ghost.
The Phoenix Ghost system, he said, will likely require minimal training for Ukrainian users who are already experienced in operating other UASs.
"We're going to be working through those training requirements directly with the Ukrainian Armed Forces," he said.
