Russian Drone Gets Tracked Home by Ukrainian SOF

This footage, provided by a Ukrainian SOF drone team, shows how they followed a Russian drone back to the base it launched from. The Ukrainians then proceeded to drone-bomb the building into oblivion.


The Ukrainians spot a Russian drone controller in the window of the building as what is presumably his drone returns. It's open season from that point as the Ukrainians fly suicide drones into the windows and bring the building down. As the operation center gets dismantled, further evidence is revealed, including wiring and electronics. While this building and its occupants would probably have been snuffed out by artillery this time last year, Ukraine is facing a dearth of artillery shells as compared to Russia and is using them sparingly. However, although it took several drones to do it, the piece-by-piece destruction of this drone base still represents a cost-effective win.
