Washington:The war between Russia and Ukraine is still going on. Meanwhile, the US is planning to sell the dreaded MQ-1C Gray Eagle drone to Ukraine. In the war against Russia, they can be equipped with Hellfire missiles. According to sources, General Atomics has made this drone and Congress can stop its sale. The whole game can turn at the last minute, which the Pentagon has been reviewing for several weeks.

According to Reuters news, Ukraine is using several short and short-range drones against Russia. These include AeroVironment’s RQ-20 Puma AE and Turkey’s Bayarkhtar-TB2. But Grey-Eagle’s technology is better than all of them. This is because they can fly for 30 or more hours. Apart from this, they can collect huge amount of data. Not only this, this drone can carry eight Hellfire missiles.

Biden will announce soon
But these sales are important for Ukraine. Because Ukraine can use it again and again. Also, they are capable of attacking far away. A US official said the Joe Biden administration would notify Congress of the sale of drones to Ukraine with a public announcement in the coming days. A US official said the amount for both the potential sale and the training needed for the drones differs from a recent $40 billion in aid.

This is the specialty of the drone
Drone expert Dan Gator said, the MQ-1C drone is huge in size. Its weight is almost three times more than Turkey’s Bayarkhtar-TB2. Apart from this, its weapon carrying capacity and range is also better than other drones. The Bayarkhtar-TB2 drone is armed with a 22 kg Turkish missile MAM-L which is almost half the weight of Hellfire. It can fly a very long flight in the sky.
