Ukrainian Drone Knocks Out Excavator Digging Russian Trench

Russian trenching operations were brought to a halt somewhere in Donetsk as a Ukrainian quadcopter drone dropped two modified grenades onto a heavy construction excavator. The Russian soldier operating the equipment bails after the first strike and runs for cover. The second grenade appears to drop squarely into the engine compartment. The machine will likely not be used again anytime soon.
