Ukraine sends 300 DJI Mavic 3T drones to battle Russian troops
In another setback to global drone giant DJI’s efforts to keep its consumer and enterprise products from being used in the conflict provoked by Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, officials in Kyiv said this week a small army of 300 Mavic 3T UAVs had been procured and sent to the eastern front in the space of just a few days.
DJI has repeatedly made clear its opposition to its powerful aerial tech being repurposed for war or other violent activities. Indeed, in reaction to the status of its UAVs as preferred reconnaissance and attack gear in the hands of Russian and Ukrainian combatants, the company moved in last April to halt sales of its products in both countries.
That, however, hasn’t kept Ukraine from getting ahold of 300 Mavic 3T drones for deployment ahead of what many observers believe will be a springtime counter-offensive against Russian troops in the east of the country.
