The Czech company Isolit-Bravo has donated the ground drones UGV Trail-Blazer to the Ukrainian military free of charge, Czech media reports.

The Czech enterprise supplies these ground drones to Ukrainian forces on the front lines to perform logistical tasks and evacuate the wounded.

The Trail-Blazer drones are delivered directly to the units to avoid bureaucracy and potential delays. They are utilized by the soldiers of the 1st Separate Tank Severianivska Brigade. In total, Isolit-Bravo has already sent 8 Trail-Blazer drones to Ukraine free of charge, with another four ready for shipment.

According to the developer of the drone platform, Filip Chalupnik, the remotely operated drone is ideally suited to assist soldiers. Thanks to its electric motor and powerful battery, the drone can provide autonomous operation for up to 8 hours with a range of up to 32 km. It has a maximum speed of 4-8 km/h.

It is controlled by an operator using a remote control within a radius of 1 kilometer. The drone is silent and has a minimal thermal signature. The platform's payload capacity is up to 350 kg.

As noted, the company and its owner, Kvido Stepanek, have been actively assisting the Ukrainian army since 2014. Stepanek has sent several truck convoys with humanitarian aid to Ukraine.

Dozens of Ukrainians work at the company's facilities, and some of them were hired after the start of Russia's full-scale invasion of Ukraine.

The company is also developing other versions, including a smaller one that will be sent to Ukraine soon and another armored version with a mine-clearing device on tracked chassis.
