The Ukrainian press confirms the information that, that the Armed Forces of Ukraine raised a Turkish-made Bayraktar TB2 shock reconnaissance drone into the air and sent it to the borders of Crimea. In particular, indicates that, that Bayraktar TB2 of the Ukrainian armed forces flew to the air borders of the Crimean peninsula.
Simultaneously with the Ukrainian Turkish-made drone near the airspace of the Crimea, there is a strategic radio-technical reconnaissance aircraft of the British Air Force RC-135W.
Earlier, the American strategic drones Global Hawk approached the borders of the Crimea.. When this was reported, that one of them for some time lost contact with the control base after approaching the borders of the LPNR.
Unmanned aerial vehicle "Flags" VSU, as reported by Ukrainian media, including Defense Express, took off from the airfield in the city of Starokonstantinov, Khmelnitsky region. If this is true, it turns out, that the control of the "Bayraktar" of the Armed Forces of Ukraine was transferred between ground stations. After all, according to the Turkish manufacturer Bayraktarov, the UAV control radius from the ground station does not exceed 150 km, which is much less than the distance from Starokonstantinov to the Crimean borders. Could the Ukrainian UAV be controlled by the British RC-135W is still an open question. At least, previously, nothing was known about such management.
noted, that Bayraktar TB2 was moving at an altitude of about 6 thousand. m with a maximum speed of about 230 kmh.
Earlier it was reported about the approach of a drone to Crimea, who moved to the Black Sea from Israel.
