Ukrainian Loses Plate Carrier to FPV Drone

Cell phone footage recorded by a Ukrainian infantryman shows off a severely damaged plate carrier. According to the Ukrainian, the body armor was brand new and a Russian FPV drone destroyed it. It's unclear if he was wearing the armor at the time of the explosion that caused the damage, but judging from the amount of damage on the rear and inside of the plate carrier, I would imagine the drone struck the gear while it was staged away from where the Ukrainian was standing.
