In the last hours, the Ukrainian Air Force is turning the Snake Island into a real hell for the Russian invaders.
Yesterday you could see here the attack of a Ukrainian Bayraktar TB2 drone against a Russian landing craft north of that island, located near the Ukrainian region of Odessa, and a few hours later the air attack carried out by two Su-27 fighters Ukrainians against Russian targets in the same place.
This morning, the Operational Command “South” of the Ukrainian Armed Forces has published a new video showing the attack of a Ukrainian Bayraktar TB2 drone on a Russian Mil Mi-8 helicopter at the moment soldiers were disembarking. The drone itself recorded the scene of the attack. From what the images reveal, this happened in the south of the island:
The Operational Command “South” of Ukraine has pointed out: “We cannot stop doing this: we expel the enemy from every piece of our land, even from a small island, from the sea, even from the air.”
The Bayraktar TB2 drones, manufactured in Turkey, are proving to be a powerful weapon in the hands of the Ukrainian Armed Forces, both as a reconnaissance and artillery guidance system, and in their attack role, thanks to their air-to-surface missiles UMTAS and CIRIT. The Ukrainian Air Force and the Ukrainian Navy operate the TB2, with 48 examples ordered in 2020 (in the first case) and 6 in the second.
