Ukrainian soldiers have requested more Mosphera electric scooters, which are used for reconnaissance and logistics

The founder of the Latvian company Mosphera said that the Ukrainian military has requested several dozen of their electric scooters. At the beginning of 2023, Latvia has already handed over several camouflaged, durable Mosphera electric scooters to the Ukrainian troops.

Since then, they have proven themselves well, and that's why two units of the Ukrainian army invited more than two dozen copies. The charitable organization also requested more than 30 such systems on behalf of the Ukrainian military, so the total order was almost 70 units, the company told Breaking Defense. ; from Ukrainian soldiers who use them to “perform combat missions”. According to Mosphera director Klavs Asmanis, the request is currently under consideration by the Latvian government, but his company is ready to fulfill the order.

Asmanis calls it the “world's first military-grade electric scooter,” though he describes it as powerful enough to be considered a “stand-up motorcycle.” He says the scooter has a top speed of more than 96 km/h, is "absolutely silent", small enough to be quickly hidden in bush, and can navigate difficult terrain — which makes it ideal for stealth reconnaissance, reconnaissance and logistics missions.

Ukrainian servicemen said that Mosphera scooters allowed them to move quickly and silently through the forest on animal tracks, which would be too noticeable on vehicles and too slow and dangerous for walking. In addition to electric scooters, Ukrainian defense forces also used electric motorcycles, and this tactic attracted the interest of American servicemen.
