US President Joe Biden announced an increase in military aid to Ukraine on March 16, including 100 small drones nicknamed “switchblade.”

The drones, which weigh 2.7 kilograms and 61 centimeters long, are lightweight, accurate, and can fit into a backpack. The Switchblade is directed at its targets on the ground by an infantry man, dozens of miles away, and it costs less than $6,000 per unit. In addition, it explodes small warheads with a direct impact on the target, also known as Kamikaze Switchblade Drones.

The report said that the U.S. sending this weapon to Ukraine represents a new phase of Western military assistance to Ukraine.
