Business Insider: Lawmakers from both sides of the aisle push Biden administration to provide Ukraine with lethal ‘Gray Eagle’ drones 

* Lawmakers are asking the Biden administration to provide Ukraine with MQ-1C “Gray Eagle” drones. 

* The drones, made by General Atomics, can carry four Hellfire missiles. 

* “The long-term upside of providing Ukraine with the MQ-1C is significant,” lawmakers wrote. 

More than a dozen US senators from both major parties are pushing the Biden administration to provide Ukraine with a fleet of advanced, armed drones that they argue would “increase the lethality” of the country’s armed forces, The Wall Street Journal reported Tuesday. 

The MQ-1C, or “Gray Eagle,” is a successor to the Predator drone manufactured by General Atomics that boasts the ability to carry four Hellfire missiles and remain airborne for up to 27 hours before refueling. It has a range of 2,500 nautical miles and can cruise at 25,000 feet.
