The American "harvest" is in the hands of the Ukrainian army after the failure of the Turkish "Bayraktar"



The Americans intend to provide the Ukrainian army with the multi-role MQ-9 Reaper drone, after the Turkish-made "Bayraktar" drones failed.

Ukrainian experts are of the opinion that the "MQ-9 Reaper" will become a better and more effective alternative to it. But this is not the case, as the results of military operations and communication devices have shown.

"Forpost" drone participates in the destruction of Ukrainian military equipment
The MQ-9 Reaper unmanned system, which translates as "harvester," consists of a few drones and a ground command station. The price tag for all of this is $30 million.

"Forpost" drone participates in the destruction of Ukrainian military equipment The MQ-9 Reaper unmanned system, which translates as "harvester," consists of a few drones and a ground command station. The price tag for all of this is $30 million.  The US armed forces received drones of this type in March 2007 and began using them in October 2007 in Afghanistan. American propaganda says that the MQ-9 Reaper is one of the best multi-role drones in the world and its capabilities are very wide.  And it seems right at first glance because the drone can stay in the air for 27 hours, its top speed is 400 km/h, and its flight altitude is 15,000 meters. But he can only bombard targets after descending to an altitude of 6000 meters. The working range of the drone is 6000 km, and it can carry 680 kg of explosives such as missiles and guided missiles.  It is worth noting that the Americans successfully used it for ultra-precision strikes. Those strikes in 2010 killed an al-Qaeda leader, Sheikh al-Masri, and then Iranian Major General Qassem Soleimani in early 2020.  However, all these strikes were directed in the absence of effective air defenses of the enemy.  Therefore, retired US Major General Kent McKenzie described the "Harvest" as slow and unable to combat highly efficient air defenses.  The duration of training of the "harvest" operator in the US Army is at least one year, which does not guarantee the success of its use.  And the US media had reported earlier that the Pentagon had lost 12 such drones since 2011.  Source: Rossiyskaya Gazeta
