"A drone destroys the russian Murom-P surveillance system. This system allowed the russians to monitor the territory and movements of our troops 24/7. Now the so-called Eye of Mordor is destroyed. By the way, 100 Phoenix 03 Heavy ucav fpv drones have already been delivered to the front. Therefore, soon the enemy will lose a lot of equipment," Mykhailo Fedorov said.

The UKrainian official also published a video on how the drone destroys the Russian Murom-P surveillance system:

The Army of Drones is a project initiated by the General Staff of the Armed Forces of Ukraine and the Ministry of Digital Transformation of Ukraine. This is a comprehensive program, within which the systematic purchase of drones, their repair, as well as training courses for relevant specialists are planned. The project was launched on July 1, 2022.

The Murom-P is a development by the russian Stilsoft company, the manufacturer refers to it as a "video-thermal surveillance system" – it has a long-range video camera and thermal imagers, and one of the kit versions also comes with radar. The best effectiveness is reached in open space, apparently, that is why the Murom-P was put on top of the tower.

The system is said to be capable of detecting objects of the types "car" and "person" in the following range characteristics: the day camera can detect and recognize a car 10,000 meters away, or a person from 8,000 m; the thermal camera spots a car within 6,900 m and a person within 2,700 m, recognizes them from 4,800 and 1,500 meters respectively, in the most basic version. There are a few upgraded variants available.
