Ukrainians Remove Abandoned Russian Tank from the Battlefield

Video released by a Ukrainian drone operator shows the removal of an abandoned Russian tank from the battlefield via drone dropped munitions.


For the record, when you see videos like this one, in almost every case there aren't going to be Russians inside of the tank. I've seen these videos published way too many times as "Dumb Russians leave their hatch open and catch a grenade, they all died," when the reality of the situation is different. Videos like this are just Ukrainian drone operators ensuring that disabled Russian tanks aren't able to be recovered, repaired, and returned to service.


They're essentially taking the tank from being a mobility kill to being a catastrophic kill, because once the tank has become a burned out hulk they'll become almost impossible to repair in any sort of realistic timeframe because miles of wire and electronics inside of the tank now need to replaced before the armor can become operational again.
