Tiny drones in Ukraine are destroying tanks
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.
