FAIL: Russian Tank Drives Through Russian Mine Field

A Ukrainian drone tracks a Russian tank as it maneuvers along an undisclosed area of the front line when suddenly the tank drives right through a strip of anti tank mines placed by fellow Russian soldiers. The mines detonate, destroying the tank. Two of the tree crewmembers can be seen exiting the tank just before the video ends.


From the birds-eye-view of the drone, the AT mines can clearly be seen. However, the tank crew is likely operating fully buttoned-up for survivability purposes, meaning all their hatches are closed and they are trying to see through periscopes and tiny window slits.


In preparation for crumbling forward lines, Russian has likely heavily mined the area between the front and the first line of defense. High casualty rates, unit rotations, and poor communications will make those mine fields a threat for both Russian and Ukrainian military units.
