Russian Tank Blown Apart By AT Mine

Drone footage shows a Russian tank unsuccessfully navigating through a mine field when it is suddenly destroyed as it detonates a powerful explosive device directly under its hull. From the short video clip we can see that two other Russian vehicles had already been knocked out in the same spot, suggesting the area is riddled with mines.


The location and date for this footage is unknown. It's also not clear who buried the mines. Russian forces buried thousands of AT mines in preparation for Ukraine's summer offensive. Given the high death rate of Russian troops, it's likely that the locations for many of those waiting mines are unknown by either side.
