Czech drones are deployed along with “volunteers” in the contested city of Bachmut where a fierce battle between Russian and Ukrainian forces in on for several weeks now.

Ukrainian soldiers have 20 Czech reconnaissance drones in its arsenal. "To date, we have a record without a single loss. All aircraft are in operational use," Primoco UAV owner Ladislav Semetkovský was quoted as saying by Czech TV.

The image of the drone attached with the report matches that of Primoco’s One 150 drone. Several European countries have purchased these drones.

Ukrainian volunteers have put together a car equipped with a drone mounted on it, thanks to which the Ukrainian soldiers manage to shoot down Russian drones. These volunteers even deliver other things to the soldiers, such as medicine, candles, food or generators. However, it is now difficult to find ordinary drones or cameras for night vision in cars. "They have to move without the lights on so they can't be seen, because when they're driving in the dark and they're shining, they're targets," one of them said.

The Czech drone needs 300m of solid surface to take off. It can then fly for up to 15 hours, while moving at a speed of up to 150kmph. "We can fly approximately 200km from the take-off point, we fly at lower flight levels and we are smaller, which means unidentifiable on radar systems," adds Semetkovský.

The capabilities of Czech drones have already been praised by the head of Ukraine's defense intelligence, Kyrylo Budanov.
