Ukrainian kamikaze UAVs attacked a Russian oil refinery in the city of Tuapse and an oil depot in Novorossiysk this morning. Ukrainian kamikaze drones “Lyuty” from Ukroboronprom, developed in 2023, were used for the attack. The kamikaze UAV "Fierce" is made of fiberglass with epoxy resin, the design uses metal mesh reinforcement and plywood to provide rigidity. The drone has a German 50-horsepower Hirth F-23 gasoline engine.
The UAV is aimed at the target using an inertial system with correction based on a satellite signal. The weight of the UAV is about 300 kg, the mass of the warhead is from 50 to 75 kg, the flight range is up to 1000 km. Cruising speed: 150-180 km/h, flight duration about 8 hours.

Footage of the work of Russian electronic warfare in Ukraine. The video shows how the operation of electronic warfare affects the control of Ukrainian FPV drones. It is unknown what electronic warfare systems were used by the Russian army and what models of FPV drones were used by Ukrainian operators. The shooting took place in the Kharkov region. The video is taken from drone signal intercepts and captured data.

Footage of an attempted attack by Ukrainian FPV kamikaze drones on a Russian serviceman. There were reportedly 7 drone attacks in total, but not all attacks are shown in the video. It is worth noting that the soldier walks calmly and makes almost no attempt to dodge the drones. But the drones cannot hit the soldier. It is possible that the serviceman is using a portable electronic warfare system. The location of the shooting has not been announced, the video has been shortened.

Footage of a Russian 7.62mm PKM machine gun hitting a Ukrainian drone called “Baba Yaga”. Drones of the Baba Yaga type are heavy agricultural UAVs of various models, converted for military needs and usually armed with 82 mm mines. As can be seen from the video, defeating a drone even with a machine gun takes longer than if shotguns were used, which have been talked about a lot lately. It is worth noting that the Russian army has begun to receive shotguns. The photo was taken over Chasov Yar.

The first footage of the use of Russian FPV drones in the Black Sea, intended for protection against naval drones of the Ukrainian army. Previously, the Russian army used predominantly firearms to repel attacks by Ukrainian naval drones. The video shows an attack by an unknown model of Russian FPV drone on a Ukrainian maritime drone MAGURA V5. The drone was drifting, waiting for a target to attack. The exact shooting location and date have not been announced.

Artillery, bombs and drones have become the main destructive factor in the fighting in Ukraine, some believe that more soldiers are even killed by drones than by small arms fighting. An episode of a battle where four Ukrainian FPV drones tried to attack a group of Russian soldiers. We can say that the soldiers were really lucky; it is not always possible to escape from drone attacks. The location of the shooting has not been announced, the video has been shortened.

Rare footage of the oncoming battle in the village of Sokol, the Russian BTR-82A armored personnel carrier of the Ukrainian M2A2 Bradley infantry fighting vehicle of the 47th brigade of the Ukrainian Army, has been published. The first part of the battle was filmed from a Ukrainian drone, the end from a Russian one. The task of the BTR-82 was to enter the village and land troops. It is worth noting that the M2A2 Bradley infantry fighting vehicle weighs 27 tons and is equipped with additional armor, and the BTR-82A weighs 14 tons. The M2A2 Bradley infantry fighting vehicle was the first to fire and damaged the engine of the BTR-82A. Despite the advantage of the M2 Bradley infantry fighting vehicle in armoring and firing first, the crew of the BTR-82A entered the battle, and the driver also managed to move the combat vehicle away from the line of fire. The result of the battle, the BTR-82A completed the task by landing 5 people near the house. As reported, the BTR-82A was sent for repairs. The damaged M2A2 Bradley infantry fighting vehicle left the village and hit a mine; artillery began firing at the M2A2 Bradley infantry fighting vehicle and the crew abandoned it. According to the latest data, two Russian soldiers who fell from an armored personnel carrier were killed.
