Poseidon H10 medium-range VTOL drones will go to the 26th Brigade. H10 Poseidon VTOL UAS is a midrange electric UAS that provides portability and covert operations capabilities. H10 can be transported in an SUV or a pickup truck and prepared for operations in less than 10 minutes. It is designed as a monocoque high-wing airframe with an electric motor and pusher cruise propeller, and four permanently mounted VTOL electric motors and propellers. This design has a significant advantage in flight safety, as VTOL propulsion is used not only for takeoff, landing, and hovering but also for in-flight emergency recovery in place of an emergency parachute. H10 Poseidon is designed to operate in GNSS-denied environments, has a very low acoustic signature in cruise flight, an extremely small radar cross-section, and no detectable thermal signature, which makes it a perfect tool for covert operations. Technical characteristics: maximum takeoff weight: 22 kg. Payload: up to 3 kg. Maximum flight altitude: 4,000m. Endurance: maximum 2 hours. Maximum speed: 100 km/h. Cruising speed: 75 km / h. Maximum flight range: 150 km. Operating range without satellite communication: 50 km.

The 120th Separate Reconnaissance Battalion received Poseidon H6 drones. This is a larger UAV type, equipped with a hybrid gasoline-electric engine. H6 Poseidon VTOL UAS is designed as a monocoque high-wing airframe with an EFI 2-stroke gasoline motor with pusher cruise propeller and starter/generator, and four permanently mounted VTOL electric motors and propellers. This design has a significant advantage in flight safety, as VTOL propulsion is used not only for takeoff, landing, and hovering but also for in-flight emergency recovery in place of an emergency parachute. The high landing gear of H6 Poseidon VTOL UAS allows the attachment of emergency flotation aids to assist recovery in case of an emergency water landing. Maximum takeoff weight: 100 kg. Payload: up to 25 kg. Maximum flight altitude: 4,000m. Maximum flight time: 7 hours. Maximum speed: 150 km/h. Cruising speed: 110 km/h. Maximum flight range with satellite communication: 850 km. Maximum flight range without satellite communication: 150 km.
