Ukrainian Kamikaze Cessna Bombs Russian Drone Facility

This compilation of civilian-provided footage shows a drone attack on Alabuga, Tatarstan. The specifically targeted facility is where Russia produces Shahed-136 FPV drones. The strikes included what appears to be a Cessna or similar single-engine aircraft wired for remote control and kamikaze attack.


The aircraft is shown crashing into a dormitory attached to the drone production facility. Two people were reported as injured, but as of time of writing, there were no fatalities attributed to the aircraft strike. This incident marks the first time in the conflict that an entire aircraft has been repurposed into a strike drone. While it cannot be confirmed, the use of a civilian aircraft may have contributed to hesitation in shooting it down, which in turn allowed it to strike its target.


The second clip shows civilians reacting to a different strike in the same attack.
