"Left Bank" Russians Smacked By Kamikaze Drones

Ukrainian drone operators of the 11th National Guard carried out a series of loitering munition strikes against Russian vehicles on the "Left Bank" in the vicinity of Krynky in Kherson.


Some things to note from the footage: The drone teams smartly chose soft skinned targets to strike, so as not to waste a bomb drone on a less vulnerable heavily armored tank. Also, note the time of day. It's not clear if the Russians are choosing hours of twilight to move in hopes that the limited visibility will make it harder for the drones, or if the drone operators are choosing low light periods so as not to be as easily detected, but there is a pattern there.
