This video, seemingly shot with a DJI Mavic 3, shows four Russian tanks in a precarious position in a gully in Ukraine. One of the Russian tanks flipped over and caught fire, causing the nearby brush to burn.
Update: “A Russian armoured group in Kharkiv Oblast recently taken out by the Ukrainian 93rd Mechanized Brigade,” according to Blue Sauron.
The reliability of the DJI Mavic 3, in combination with the extended range, long flight time, and powerful zoom capabilities, makes it a very valuable drone during the war.
