Drone Follows BMP and Strikes After They Stop

FLIR drone footage released by Ukrainian sources shows a modified drone following what appears to be a Russian BMP. About halfway through the video, the BMP is shown stopped, and the drone releases a payload that impacts with the BMP, allegedly destroying it.


At this time, we're unable to independently verify the destruction of the BMP since the video ends before a battle damage assessment can be made. We also do not see the BMP pull off to the side or come to a complete stop so there is also a chance that the stopped vehicle is somehow different than the one they were initially pursuing.


This could be an indicator that they simply followed a separate vehicle and then spliced in footage of them destroying another piece of abandoned armor to make this video, however I find it difficult to believe that the Ukrainian source would go through all of that extra trouble given the amount of destroyed BMPs we've seen over the last year and a half of this conflict.
