The drone Mamai is distinguished by its versatility and high-speed capabilities, reaching up to 110 km/h. It serves multiple roles, functioning as a strike UAV, a communication repeater, and can also act as a platform for launching other weapons.

These drones are critical in executing important missions, with the potential for large-scale attacks on Russian military targets in the Black Sea. There is anticipation of significant operations from the SBU, particularly around the New Year period.

The Unmanned Surface Vessel is recognized for its role in strategic shifts of Russian naval forces, particularly noted during counteroffensives in 2023. It is known as the fastest object in the Black Sea, measuring 6 meters in length and equipped with a surveillance camera and satellite system.

The drone's involvement in the August 5, 2023, attacks led to a repositioning of Russian naval forces from the Crimean coasts to more secure locations, marking a pivotal moment in the ongoing conflict.

The SBU also deployed another drone, Sea Baby, which was used in an operation against a strategic bridge, carrying 850 kilograms of explosives. Additionally, the evolving features of Ukrainian drones Magura V5, noted for their ease of deployment, continue to be a strategic asset against Russian forces.
