Birds Of Magyar Wrecking Russian Boats In The Dnipro

This footage, provided by Ukraine's Birds of Magyar drone team, shows Russian boats being relentlessly pursued by munition-dropping drones, which turn the boats into burning hulks of rubber and fuel. This video has the distinction of narration, having been released as part of a fundraising effort for the Birds of Magyar.


The "like shooting fish in a barrel" similie does admittedly lose something when the "fish" are, in fact, in a river, but nonetheless, the Birds of Magyar are shown absolutely punishing these boats. Even with night vision, and especially without it, this incident from the Russian perspective must be absolutely terrifying.


Case in point: right at 02:23, a bomb causes a boat's engine to explode, which sets a nearby Russian's legs on fire. He apparently jumps in the water to extinguish the flames... only to be crushed by a neighboring boat. Imagine being the coxswain of that boat- you see the explosion, the fire, and the screaming. Your sense of night vision wrecked by the fire, you race over to help, and then there's a sickening thump on the hull and the screaming stops. Just let that marinate for a minute.
