"After we successfully test the drone under the EW influence, we hope to be able to test it in combat use. We promised to do so by the end of this year, and we are trying to live up to that promise," said the spokeswoman.

As reported, on October 17, after yet another strike of the Geran-2 drones, originally called Shahed-136 (Iranian-made UAVs), Ukroboronprom published a photo of a metal structure with a blue bird and a yellow coat of arms, captioning it: "Range: 1,000 km, payload: 75 kg.
