Another truly spectacular video has been uploaded recently which first of all showed sighting and optical station capacities of the UAV: they are enough to conduct reconnaissance at a distance of more than 100 km.
In particular, Bayraktar TB2 has filmed successful destruction of the Tor air-defense missile system on Zmiinyi (Snake) Island, which was annihilated by another Bayraktar TB2.
The video clearly shows the distance to the object, which is 108 km. it means that during this operation the drone was somewhere near Odesa. On May 6 the operation results were announced officially.
Frankly speaking, the Armed Forces of Ukraine have a truly unique tool for passive intelligence, given the capabilities of Bayraktar TB2.
Prior to that, a distance of about 50 km had been documented to adjust the artillery fire. At least, from this distance the UAV corrected artillery shelling at Chornobayivka Airfield.
Defense Express notes that such reconnaissance capabilities of the drone are of great importance, because Bayraktar TB2 not only sees targets, but also accurately determines their coordinates, which can be transmitted online to long-range weapons.
