Ukraine's Defense Forces Successfully Destroy Enemy Artillery, SAM Systems

The Ukrainian defense forces use unmanned aerial vehicles (UAV) to target various enemy objects on the battlefield - from weaponry and military equipment to high-ranking russian officials

Colonel General Oleksandr Syrskyi, Commander of the Ground Forces of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, shared a video on his social media accounts that showcased the collaborative efforts of the Ukrainian Armed Forces and the Security Service of Ukraine (SSU) using FPV drones on the Bakhmut front.

The published video demonstrates the effective operation of the tactical group of the Center of Special Operations “A” and the aerial reconnaissance team of the 30th Detached Mechanized Brigade, known as "Komanda Vyaloho".

The aerial reconnaissance team of the 30th Brigade provided guidance to special forces, who used FPV drones to fire at enemy vehicles. It was possible to hit five units of enemy weaponry and military equipment within just six hours, including artillery systems and an anti-aircraft missile system.

Among the targets were not only a KamAZ truck but also two D-20 152 mm towed gun-howitzers, one D-30 122-mm howitzer, and a Strela anti-aircraft missile system.

This incident highlights the effectiveness of using FPV drones on the battlefield to engage targets such as howitzers and air defense systems.

Therefore, the quantitative strengthening of the Ukrainian Armed Forces with FPV drones, as well as other types of drones, including combat ones, is a crucial strategy.

Ukrainian forces utilize FPV drones not only for striking enemy vehicles (as evident from a recent incident involving the destruction of the BMPT "Terminator" сombat vehicle) but also for eliminating russian officials.

Recently, the Defence Intelligence of the Ministry of Defense of Ukraine released a video showing FPV drones striking the leadership of the so-called "police" in the temporarily occupied Energodar. Several high-ranking russian officials sustained multiple injuries, they were transported to russian territory.
