Lithuania will purchase 37 Polish Warmate kamikaze drones for Ukrainian fighters. For this, Lithuanians collected more than 1 million euros. This was announced by the Minister of Defense of Lithuania Arvidas Anusauskas on Twitter.
The funds were collected as part of the "Legion Boom" initiative. The Defense Department of Lithuania has already held negotiations with the manufacturer, the Polish company WB Group
In addition to 37 drones, 10 of which the company will make for free, Lithuania will purchase two kits with all the necessary accessories.
Warmate combat drones are easily transportable, they weigh about 5.7 kg and can fly up to 30 km at a speed of 150 km/h. They can be prepared for tasks in less than 5 minutes. At the same time, drones can carry explosives, destroy tanks or even command posts.

As part of the initiative, it was possible to collect about 2 million euros. The remaining funds will be used to purchase UJ-23 Topaz Ukrainian kamikaze drones manufactured by UkrJet.
