The Security Service of Ukraine (SBU) conducts successful special operations in the Black Sea using unmanned surface vehicles called “Sea Baby” and “Mamai,” ukrinform.net reported.
The SBU said the Sea Baby surface drone is a multi-purpose platform that is effectively used today. In particular, the unmanned surface vehicle was involved in attacks on the Crimean Bridge and other enemy targets. Thanks to the successful attacks using drones, the SBU managed to change the philosophy of conducting naval operations. In October 2022, the SBU’s naval drones attacked enemy ships in Sevastopol Bay. At that time, four warships were damaged, including the Admiral Makarov frigate.
This year, Ukrainian naval drones hit the Samum and Pavel Derzhavin missile carriers, the SIG tanker, the Olenegorsky Gornyak landing ship and damaged the tugboat Nikolay Muru and the nati-mine ship Vladimir Kozitsky.
