Drone-Directed Artillery Targets Russian Logistics

I do not have much information on this footage, other than that it is taken in or around Bakhmut. The video purports to show a drone/IDF combo targeting a Russian forward supply dump located in a tree line. Russian trucks appear to be offloading materiel and soldiers carry it into collection points concealed under the trees. The perspective shifts to a wider view, showing an IDF strike from artillery or perhaps HIMARS hitting one of the positions in the trees. The perspective zooms in to show a soldier limping from the explosion.


This video is significant for two reasons. First, it demonstrates the effective tactical employment of IDF assets against forward logistics hubs in order to erode the combat effectiveness of Russian formations. Shortages of ammunition, food, and equipment for Russian troops manning the main defensive belt have become dire of late, with units releasing videos appealing to the Russian MoD for assistance. These efforts are reducing the perceived advantages afforded by Russian manpower and allowing Ukraine to advance, albeit slowly. The second reason that I chose this video is the music. Kudos.
