Bomb Drone Smashes Russian Tank Head-On

Wild footage recorded by a camera mounted on a Russian tank during the ongoing battle for Maryinka shows a Ukrainian loiter munition, which appears to be an FPV racing drone carrying an RPG-7 warhead, smashing into the front of the tank.


The kamikaze drone was successful in avoiding the countermeasure cage, but still engaged the the front of the vehicle where the armor is the strongest. The Russian tank survives the round, but has sustained significant damage to the front armor panel. Just before the video ends, the tank is engaged by another unspecified munition, which appears to just miss and detonate to the right of the vehicle.
