Watch: Russia's Lancet Kamikaze Drone Destroys Ukrainian Tank
Russian paratroopers successfully targeted a Ukrainian tank using a precise strike from a loitering munition, resulting in the tank immediately catching fire.
The Russian Ministry of Defence has released footage showing airborne troops blasting Ukrainian tanks with dormant ammunition. The enemy vehicles were spotted by reconnaissance drones and then "Lancet" kamikaze UAVs were used to take them out.
Kamikaze drones (or loitering munitions) are a type of "smart" projectile that, by definition, can loiter - passively waiting for prey before attacking.
Technically, this type of weapon fills the niche between cruise missile and military drones, being smarter than the former and cheaper than the latter. The drones have built-in warheads and therefore don't survive the attack.
