Sharing One of Our Newest Weapons Systems

The Pentagon revealed on April 21st that they would be providing Ukrainian forces with 121 new Phoenix Ghost tactical unmanned aerial systems (UAS). They are reported to “very nicely” suit the needs of the Ukrainian military in their fight against the Russians who invaded their nation on February 24th. For the uninitiated, “tactical unmanned aerial systems” is another way of saying “drones.”

Right off the bat, I’ll admit to the fact that it’s a little bit difficult to write about classified weapons systems because they are…well…secret. I promise, however, to dig up all the open-source information I can on this and bring you up to speed on what we know.
