Easter holidays are in full swing, but even on this occasion, there's no break on the front. Another clip has surfaced online, showcasing a Ukrainian drone skillfully annihilating a Russian armored unit. The unmanned vehicle delivered its payload, and the T-90M tank, valued at about $3.5 million, was reduced to smoke.

Today, combat drones have become an invaluable and versatile asset in front-line operations. Their remarkable striking power has been demonstrated globally, with compelling images from Ukraine.

In addition to surveillance, detection, and monitoring of front lines, these machines pose a significant threat to Russian forces. Their cameras offer precise information about the location of targets, enabling operators to carry out effective aerial attacks, footage of which has been made available to the public.

In another video, we witness a Ukrainian FPV drone gliding directly over a Russian T-90M tank, which was "concealed" behind trees and had both of its hatches open, astonishingly. After a grenade was dropped straight into the heart of the armored vehicle, it was visible that a soldier was inside. He could not escape, as the moment he began climbing onto the turret, a massive explosion ensued, engulfing the machinery in flames.

Observers have noted that the Russian tank was equipped with anti-drone systems, specifically the RP-377UVM1L "Lasochek". However, they failed to activate this time as well.
"Orcs will never understand that there's no escaping drones. They'll just die tired," reads one comment on the X platform.

The Russian T-90M tank crew, boasted as the pride of Vladimir Putin's army but has repeatedly failed in combat, likely fled, leaving behind a valuable asset on the battlefield. It's possible the soldiers anticipated the drone attack and knew it was all over. This vehicle was an easy target, abandoned with a $3.5 million price tag.

We should also recall that Silesian author Szczepan Twardoch recently contributed another batch of FPV drones to the Ukrainian forces. For this purpose, he visited the front line at the beginning of the year.

"I've just purchased another two Mavic 3Ts and, in an emergency, one Mavic 3 for the II Legion [International - ed.], making a total of eight drones in this installment of the fundraiser," Szczepan Twardoch reports.
Thanks to continuous participation, over 50 drones have been procured in the latest campaign.
