Ukraine destroys 3 million pound Russian elite tank with 400 pound rockets and homemade drone | World | News


Ukraine appears to have destroyed an elite Russian T-90 “Vladmir” tank using a homemade drone. Incredible footage from the attack shows the moment Ukraine fires rockets worth just £400 and completely annihilates the £3million tank. Ukraine’s stunning triumph comes just a day after another drone video showed a £4million Russian T-90m tank being shot down by a Swedish rocket launcher north of Kharkiv.

On Wednesday, a video shared by Aerorozvidka – Ukraine’s drone warfare unit – showed the moment Ukrainian rockets were dropped on one of Russia’s most advanced tanks on the battlefield.

Two huge explosions can be seen in the aerial clip, which completely obliterated the tank.

Aerorozvidka tweeted: “Our fighters destroyed the Russian T-90 “Vladimir” tank in the southern direction of the front.

“Its price is 2.5 to 3.5 million dollars. We continue to work for victory!

Each of the bombs cost just around £400, according to Military Today.

Aerorozvidka prides itself on making its own drones for “tens of thousands of pounds” and uses old anti-tank rockets to attack the Russians from the sky.

A similar clip shared on Tuesday showed the moment an elite Russian T-90M tank burst into a ball of fire in eastern Ukraine

The footage, believed to have been taken during the fighting for Stary Saltiv, north of Kharkiv, saw debris flying through the air after the rocket attack.

The withdrawal of Russian forces from Kharkiv is an acknowledgment of Russia’s inability to capture and hold key Ukrainian cities, according to the Defense Ministry.

He said Vladimir Putin’s focus on Donbass had left troops around Kharkiv “vulnerable to the mobile and highly motivated Ukrainian counterattack force”.

The briefing continued: “Despite Russia’s success in encircling Kharkiv early in the conflict, it reportedly withdrew units from the area to reorganize and rebuild its forces after heavy casualties.”

The Ministry of Defense added: “Once replenished, these forces will likely deploy to the eastern bank of the Siverskyi Donets River, forming a blocking force to protect the western flank of Russia’s main concentration of forces and the main supply routes for operations near Izium.
