In this episode, the operators' prey was most likely T-72B3 tank and BMD-2 airborne infantry fighting vehicle, which were destroyed with the help of unguided cumulative munitions RKG-1600 - actually remanufactured hand-held anti-tank grenades.

It is worth noting that the effectiveness of the use of multicopters to destroy enemy armored vehicles has previously been questioned. But the combination of a multicopter, a bomb-dropping system and unguided RKG-1600 cumulative ammunition has worked well.

This system, having a minimum cost of all components, proves its effectiveness almost every day. It allows Ukrainian warriors to destroy the enemy, which is on a certain distance and not in line of sight. RKG-1600 cumulative ammunition is effective against stationary equipment, including armored vehicles, tanks. In the case of using such a system against manpower - their effectiveness is lower.
