Bomb Drone Hits Russian BTR With Troops On Top

Footage shows two Ukrainian loiter munition strikes against Russian infantry fighting vehicles in the vicinity of Maryinka, the contested southwest suburb of Donetsk city.


The first strike targets a BTR, and Russian troops can be seen exposed, riding on top at the time of the blast. The second strike hits a BMP-2.


The effectiveness of the strikes cannot be determined from the video, but these improvised bomb drones have been shown to carry 73mm high explosive projectile rounds designed for the SPG-9 recoilless gun, which certainly has the capability to seriously damage these types of light armored vehicles.
