Ukrainian Bomb Drones Now Using Remote Detonation

A new development in Ukrainian drone technology is becoming power popular on the battlefield as kamikaze drones are now being equipped with a remote detonation feature.


Previously, many of the bomb drones were requiring contact wires to strike a hard surface to complete their circuit and cause the payload to explode. Using command detonation allows the pilot to burst the explosive at will. In this case the device was detonated in the air in between fleeing Russian troops.
