Germany delivers Primoco ONE reconnaissance drones to Ukraine

By Defence Industry Europe

The German government has delivered seven Primoco ONE unmanned aerial vehicles to the Armed Forces of Ukraine. These drones, manufactured by the Czech company Primoco, are intended for intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance (ISR) operations at the tactical level.


On November 2, the German government announced the delivery of eight Primoco ONE drones to Ukraine. According to the Czech drone manufacturer, the Primoco ONE has a maximum take-off weight of 150 kg, combined with a flight time of up to 15 hours, a range from the ground station of up to 200 km, and an overall distance covered of up to 2,000 km.



This endurance, combined with a cruise speed of 100–150 km/h, gives the Primoco ONE drone—compared to electric aircraft—unmatched performance in its category, while at the same time, operating costs are kept to a minimum, the Primoco company said.



The drone’s unique features include a 30kg payload and high-altitude operation capabilities (up to 3,300m above sea level), allowing for extended missions with a mixed sensor payload and operation at altitudes of 2,000m or higher.
