Rare: FPV Drone Used As Bomber Instead Of A Bomb

In a demonstration of evolving tactics, a Ukrainian FPV racing drone is shown being used as an unmanned bomber, rather than a one-way loitering munition.


The new technique allows the aerial asset to be reused many times rather than being destroyed during its first use. The footage appears to show a munition of some sort being ripped on a Russian APC or IFV, and a smoke plume seen in the aftermath shows the drop was accurate.
