What is known about Polish-made assault UAVs.

Lithuanian Defense Minister Arvydas Anusauskas reported on social networks that the state will buy more than 30 drones and transfer them to the Armed Forces of Ukraine.

The “LegionOfBoom” campaign was launched in Lithuania. It was started by journalist Andrius Tapinas. As a result of the campaign, which started before Ukraine’s Independence Day, Tapinas managed to raise a donation of over 1.5 million euros.

“Poland met with Deputy Interior Minister Vilius Semeshka today. For 1 million euros, we will buy 37 Warmate kamikaze drones from the Polish manufacturer WB group and transfer them to Ukraine.

I trusted 25, but managed to accept another 27 and 10 from a Polish manufacturer supporting Ukraine. Super!

“Now it remains to finish the formalities, sign a contract with the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and transfer one million euros to them,” he said.

Later on Twitter, Lithuanian Defense Minister Arvydas Anusauskas confirmed that some of the funds raised by the donors, namely 1 million euros, will be spent on the purchase of 37 Warmate UAVs.


The drone is made in a high-wing form factor. It is launched from a container launcher and is actuated in flight by an electric motor.

  • Application radius: 10 km
  • Flight time: 30 min.
  • Maximum speed: 150 km/h
  • Maximum flight altitude: 500 m
  • Maximum take-off weight: 4 kg

As a payload, a warplane can carry warheads with 800 g of explosives. The UAV is controlled automatically. If it didn’t work, it can be rolled back to the starting point. There is also the option to cancel the strike.

According to Wikipedia, an assault UAV can be equipped with high-explosive fragmentation, cumulative, thermobaric warheads.
