Drone Dunks on T80 Despite Cope Canopy

A Ukrainian drone drops a grenade into the hatch of a Russian T-80 tank, despite the protective overhead canopy. The tank, which is already lost a track and is clearly disabled, catches fire and is rendered extra crispy. Video of drone dropped munitions are fairly common, but this was interesting due to the overhead cover which still did not protect the hatches in the turret, which makes it seem like a wasted effort.
