  1. So, this was indeed a tanker. According to some sources, it transported fuel to the mafia military. But, those days are over. This adds much to mafia woes in their logistics department.
    What also amazes me, besides how well these new drones work, is that the Ukrainians are able to control those drones remotely and receive video recordings from them.
