Rheinmetall will reportedly handover several Luna new generation drone systems to Ukraine by year-end.

The package will consist of a ground control station with several drones, a launch catapult and military trucks, Bild am Sonntag reported on Aug. 12, citing company sources.

The drone system could be used as a reconnaissance system, provide an LTE network and intercept or jam communications.

The LUNA NG has a fuselage structure made of carbon fiber reinforced plastic. It offers a flight time of over 12 hours – and with its data link range of over 100km, it achieves a spatial coverage of more than 30,000 km2.

Rheinmetall reportedly bought 50 Leopard 1 tanks for Ukraine from the Belgian company OIP Land Systems. It purchased the tanks which will be refitted in Germany as part of its future exports of armored vehicles to Kyiv.
