Lancet Drone Strike on Ukrainian Air Defense System

Reconnaissance drone video released by pro-Russian sources on Telegram shows an effective Lancet loitering munition strike against what appears to be a Ukrainian Strela-10. From the video alone, it appears as if the strike had immense effects on target, and it may have even possibly destroyed the system.


If someone has a better eye for armor ID and can let us know down in the comments, it would be greatly appreciated. It's also unconfirmed that the platform was completely destroyed as it appears the crew was able to escape with only one serious casualty. It's entirely possible that they'll be able to recover and repair the system at a later date.
