Drifting Ukrainian Tank Crew Goes on Insane Rampage in Bakhmut

Reconnaissance drone video from a team supporting armor on the ground in Bakhmut captures the rampage of a Ukrainian tank crew that is assaulting Russian positions.


I don't know a whole lot about tanks or tank tactics, but I do know that in urban environments tanks are generally supported by infantrymen to prevent the enemy from getting too close to the armor's weak-points. I don't know if these guys got that message, or if they just decided that drifting was an acceptable tactic in lieu of friendly infantry support.


I'm also not sure I'm too familiar with the tactic of shoving your tank barrel into an enemy occupied building, but I suppose liquefying the enemy's insides with over pressure is probably just as viable as shooting them with a coaxial machine gun.
