Russian Troops Have a Close Encounter With an FPV Drone

Cell phone video released independently by a Russian Soldier gives you a first person perspective of what it's like to narrowly survive an FPV drone attack. It appears as if at least one Russian was injured in this attack, but the unarmored vehicle they were operating was still functioning after the strike.


What's interesting is that in almost every instance of this type of attack that we see from the perspective of the troops on the ground for either side is that there is an immediate response to begin scanning for follow on drone attacks. Like IEDs, I suspect that secondary attack drones are extremely common across all front-lines. Two is one and one is none, so the saying goes.
