Ukraine startup makes anti-drone gun felling Russian UAVs two miles off %
A startup in Western Ukraine has developed an anti-drone gun it says can drop Russian craft over two miles away, making the locally produced device a potentially lifesaving defense asset for troops battling repurposed Russian consumer UAVs.
Kvertus Technology is the company behind the Antidron KVS G-6 anti-drone system that company technology director Yaroslav Filimonov says has already been delivered to Ukraine forces fighting invading Russian soldiers.
