UA TOW 2B ATGM Pounds Russian Tank

Drone footage of a troops from the Ukrainian 65th Mechanized Brigade firing a top-down-attack ATGM, likely a TOW 2B, at a Russian tank. The TOW is an American-made heavy anti-tank guided missile (ATGM) with a maximum effective range of 3750 meters. This Cold War-era system has evolved over the years, and the TOW 2B is one of its more potent variants. This version of the TOW is designed to fly over its target and to fire a shaped charge downwards through the thinner armor on top of the turret. The missile maintains a level flight, as opposed to the Javelin which flies upwards before descending on its target from above.
