An unusual hybrid of the German BMW 740i E38 was noticed in Ukrainian army units; these vehicles were produced in Germany from 1994 to 2001 and the Soviet MLRS BM-21 Grad. By crossing both types of equipment, the result can be said to be a luxury class MLRS.

Ukrainian M1 Abrams tanks have been enhanced with ARAT protection. Ukrainian M1A1SA Abrams tanks, American-made, began to be equipped, presumably, with ARAT (Abrams Reactive Armor Tiles) dynamic protection of the first generation. ARAT dynamic protection was developed in 2004, specifically for the M1A1 and M1A2 Abrams tanks. The BRAT (Bradley Reactive Armor Tiles) dynamic protection system, previously developed for the Bradly infantry fighting vehicle, was taken as the basis. The first generation of ARAT-1 protection consists of modules designated as M19. ERA units are installed on the aprons of the tank hull; there is none in other places. The modules protect the tank from drones, but cannot protect against the Kornet ATGM and other systems.

A new kamikaze drone equipped with a jet engine was tested in Ukraine. At the moment, the drone developers have not provided any technical information about the drone, including even the drone model is unknown. Visually, no cameras are visible on the drone, apparently the drone is aimed at the target only according to predetermined GPS coordinates.

The first footage of the work of Ukrainian women military personnel. The process of firing a mortar is not shown, but in the video you can see how women prepare a position for a mortar. The brand of the mortar and details about what kind of unit it is are not reported.

The Ukrainian army began using British Supacat HMT air defense systems with AIM-132 ASRAAM missiles. These air defense systems were developed in the UK on an urgent basis, based on Supacat HMT (6x6) armored trucks. As air defense, the trucks were equipped with an installation with two AIM-132 aircraft missiles, developed by MBDA in 1998. The air defense system has only two missiles; due to the risk of damaging the missiles, spare missiles were not deployed. The AIM-132 aircraft missile is equipped with an infrared seeker with the ability to track a target before and after launch. It is unknown whether the air defense missile system received the function of additional missile guidance to the target. The missile's flight range during an air launch is presumably up to 50 kilometers, and about 20 kilometers during a ground launch. The missile weighs 88 kg and has a warhead weighing 10 kg. The Supacat HMT air defense system is equipped with an electro-optical detection station extendable on the mast; visually there is no radar on the air defense system. The proposed design is easy to manufacture and low cost, the cost of the AIM-132 missile is about 200,000 pounds sterling

MAGURA maritime drone units are being created in Ukraine. A unit for managing naval drones has been created in the Main Intelligence Directorate of the Ministry of Defense of Ukraine. The unit, called Group 13, is reportedly formed from the most experienced maritime drone operators. It is worth noting that air and sea drones are beginning to play an increasingly significant role on the battlefield, and it is time for the armies of the world to create not units, but a separate branch of the military, consisting of drones and operators of various different specializations. There are no details about the Group 13 division; it is known that it uses MAGURA V5 maritime drones from Spetstechnoexport. Drones are reportedly used in operations in large numbers, up to ten at a time.

The Ukrainian Army will receive EFA CEFA self-propelled pontoon bridges made in France. The EFA self-propelled pontoon bridge was developed by Chaudronnerie et Forges d'Alsace and has been in use since 1993. The self-propelled bridge ferry EFA differs from the usual bridge layers that transport pontoon bridges; the EFA can also be used as an amphibious transporter. The single EFA amphibious transporter creates a 34.55 meter long ferry. Two EFA amphibians connected together on a ramp can transport cargo weighing up to 150 tons. In one hour, the EFA amphibian is capable of covering about 10 water crossings with a length of 100 meters. The self-propelled bridge ferry EFA has a 4-person crew and is used by France and the United Arab Emirates.
