Ukraine Developing Combat UUV


OSINT Twitter is reporting that Brave1, a Ukrainian R&D consortium comprised of state, military, and private sector entities, has developed a combat unmanned underwater vehicle (UUV).

Energy is likely provided by lithium ion batteries, although a hydrogen fuel cell system could also be used to power larger displacement variants.

The Toloka is either remotely controlled or semi-autonomous, utilizing the mast for intermittent or ongoing communication with a human operator.

Following on the success of its weaponized unmanned surface vehicle (USV), Toloka is the latest example of innovative UKR unmanned maritime platforms designed to engage the Russian Black Sea Fleet.
