Tiny Drones in Ukraine Are Destroying Tanks | GZERO World

One of the the most important and decisive weapons on the battlefield in the Russia/Ukraine conflict is the drone.

Combat drones have soared over the front lines, but so are commercial drones, the type you can buy at a local electronics shop. Both sides are using them to spot the enemy and destroy targets.

Although they're not as durable or powerful as military-grade hardware, low-cost consumer drones are a particularly important way for Ukraine to resist a powerful enemy like Russia.

In this GZERO exclusive, we speak to a Ukrainian soldier and drone operator about the low-tech tools hitting the battlefield, and learn more about how drones are changing the face of warfare in the 21st century.
