Loitering Munition Scores Direct Hit on M777 Howitzer

Two views of a Russian loitering munition strike on a piece of Ukrainian artillery captures the moment a Lancet drone impacts with and destroys what appears to be an M777 Howitzer.


Per usual, when there is evidence of destruction to show, you can always count on Russian forces to show it. This is the normal standard operating procedure for their video releases. I've talked about this at length in the past, but for some reason we still have commenters questioning why I say a strike was more than likely ineffective when the video ends prematurely with no trace of a battle damage assessment.


If anyone has a different or better ID on the artillery piece, please let us know down in the comments. It's also worth noting for the purpose of context that this video was filmed near Kherson.
