Countermeasures Against Drones

In addition to deploying drones, the Chinese military is also training to defend against them. The video shows a soldier holding a counter-drone gun, while another soldier on the ground attempts to capture an incoming FPV drone mid-flight using a net. The drone becomes entangled in the net and narrowly misses the soldier as it crashes to the ground.
