The Armed Forces of Ukraine will receive 160 complexes to combat drones Slinger. This was reported by representatives of the Australian company Electro Optic Systems, which is a manufacturer of equipment.

Complexes to combat drones for Ukraine purchased from the Australian company USA. Now the Australian company has signed two contracts for the supply of 110 systems for M113 armored vehicles and another contract for the purchase of 50 systems has been signed by Praktika. The latest systems are integrated into the Bushmaster armored personnel carrier.

The value of the contract, according to Vice President Matt Jones, is about $170 million. He called the agreement on the supply of anti-drone systems a significant export contract.

Recall that a special complex for combating drones was originally created on the basis of a 30 mm M230LF cannon and a 7,62 mm MAG58 machine gun in order to be installed on a GMC Denali pickup truck. Now the complex will be adapted for installation on armored vehicles in service with the Ukrainian army.

With the help of such complexes, the Armed Forces of Ukraine expect to intensify the fight against unmanned aerial vehicles, which have recently begun to cause great damage to Ukrainian formations, military and infrastructure facilities located both on the front line and in the rear.
