US military companies can test their pilot projects during the fighting in Ukraine, and a number of firms are already doing this, writes Military Times.
Deputy Defense Minister of Ukraine Volodymyr Gavrilov said that the United States could send weapons to Kyiv that they would like to test in combat. According to him, weapons tested in this way will be easy to sell. He also added that a number of companies have already handed over “not yet released” equipment to the Armed Forces of Ukraine.
“And they are coming back with a product that is competitive in the market because it has been tested in a war zone,” Gavrilov said.
Earlier, the head of the Ministry of Defense of Ukraine, Oleksiy Reznikov, said that the Ukrainian territories had turned into a “testing ground”. He encouraged Western military companies to test their new products on the battlefield.
