For the first time, the Ukrainian military used Bayraktar drones against militants and Russian troops who occupied the regions of Donbass.

Volunteer Roman Donik announced this on his Facebook page .

“To save the lives of soldiers and civilians, the Bayraktar UAV was raised, a battery was discovered, and one cannon was destroyed by a rocket. At that moment. The calculations of others disappeared. But this is not certain. Because they raised more than one bird. Trust the APU”, – writes Donik.

Donik added that Granitnoye was fired at from the maximum possible range – over 15 kilometers, so it was not possible to detect the OOS battery by conventional means.

  • In 2019, the Ukrainian Armed Forces began testing the Bayraktar TB2 Turkish attack drones.

    • I fully agree with you in regards to Muslims and that Ukraine could build its own – and no doubt effective – drones. But, here, success was made possible by a Muslim-built drone that destroyed a worse enemy’s artillery piece. If every mission will end like this, eventually, the mafiosi won’t be able to replace every piece of equipment.

  1. Nice end result, but destroying a Soviet artillary gun is not a good use of this weapon. Start destroying Russia electronic warfare weapons, that’ll wake up the dwarf terrorist.
