In particular, the Ukrspecsystems company released footage from its PD-2 unmanned aerial system, which demonstrates the jewelry work of the Ukrainian missile systems and the capabilities of the new Ukrainian drones for reconnaissance and artillery operations.

The company’s post on social media said: “PD-2 UAV automatic takeoff and landing, operating under heavy rain and strong wind at the speed of 10 m/s, and surveillance of ATGM hitting a target at a 2 km distance – that and more in our brand new video.”

Furthermore, the Chief of Army Staff had indicated strong interest in the test performance of the Ukrainian modern weapon system, among which he highlighted the newest Oplot tank and the Skif anti-tank system (an export modification of the Stugna missile system).

“Pakistan is keen to enhance defense cooperation with Ukraine on the basis of Transfer of Technology and Joint Ventures in future as both sides can benefit from each other’s experience,” said Spokesperson Pakistan Armed Forces.
