British Stormer Disabled by Russian Kamikaze Drone in Ukraine

Video released by pro-Russian sources on Telegram shows a Russian Lancet Kamikaze drone attack being carried out against what appears to be a British Alvis Stormer Close Air Defence Vehicle.


Over the past few weeks, we've seen a significant uptick in the number of Lancet kamikaze drone attacks being carried out against Ukrainian targets of opportunity. It's unclear if the Ukrainians have started to develop any field expedient solutions to these drone attacks, however as is often the case, this video cuts just seconds after the initial explosion.


From previous videos, we know that the Russians conduct a proper battle damage assessment when they fully destroy a target with their Lancet drone. In the case of this video, they do not leave the camera rolling for the smoke to clear, instead opting to cut to a splash screen. The Lancet drone has destroyed at least one Stormer in Ukraine so far, but in this instance it appears as if the device only disabled the vehicle.
