Ukraine has officially launched the Unmanned Systems Forces. A new type of military began recruiting servicemen for open positions.

This was reported by the press service of the Ministry of Defense of Ukraine in Telegram, as well as the Forces of Unmanned Systems.

SBS > is the first military branch in the world that uses air, sea surface/underwater, ground unmanned and robotic systems in its combat operations.

A steel swallow was chosen as the logo of the new type of troops – “a peaceful creature that turns into a cold-blooded machine of revenge for wrongdoers,” SBS explained. This image was generated by artificial intelligence, symbolizing the emphasis on technology and its role in modern warfare.

Today, Ukraine has created a precedent that has not been seen since the creation of airplanes, commented the commander of the SBS, Colonel Vadym Sukharevskyi, on the creation of the troops. He added that, following the example of Ukraine, a number of countries are also creating their own unmanned units and developing production.

First Deputy Minister of Defense Ivan Gavrylyuk noted that unmanned systems will help protect the lives of soldiers and strike the enemy at full depth from battle formations to the Urals.

We have a good prospect for victory in the war against Russia. We can achieve this victory thanks to your intelligence, your perseverance and thanks to what you do to protect the lives and health of our servicemen, increasingly involving robots and unmanned systems in the execution of combat missions in the air, on land and at sea, – said Ivan Havryliuk.

Sukharevsky added that in 2024, the Armed Forces received six times more drones than in the entire previous year. He stated that the plan to deliver one million FPV drones within a year will be met and exceeded. Currently, the products of more than 125 manufacturers of unmanned systems have been contracted and purchased, the commander noted.

SBS launched an official website, a YouTube channel, a Telegram channel and started recruiting.
