Check out this video that was recently shared on Twitter. The aerial footage shows Russian troops hiding underneath a bridge in Ukraine.
DJI Mavic 3 drops grenade on Russian troops hiding under bridge
The drone operator has developed some serious skills and drops the grenade with deadly accuracy on top of the encampment.
The part of the Russian camp that extends from underneath the bridge seems to be an improvised kitchen area with a grating placed over the top that offered little protection.
The tweet accompanying the video reads: “A Ukrainian drone drops a F1 hand grenade onto a Russian camp partially under a bridge. Note the grating placed over the exposed portion of the camp, most likely attempting to serve as some form of protection against attacks like this. It proves to be ineffective though.”
After the grenade explodes, the drone operator uses the powerful digital zoom feature of the DJI Mavic 3 to get a closer look at the damage done. At one point, you can see the zoom feature jump from 4x zoom to 7x zoom. This is a signature ‘feature’ of the Mavic 3 when the digital zoom jumps from using the main lens to the drone’s secondary telelens.
