THE Ukrainian 79th Air Assault Brigade released a video of a recent drone deployed 40mm M430 HEDP grenade strikes on Russian positions and vehicles.

Taking to social media late on Saturday, November 5, footage of 40mm M430 HEDP grenade strikes on Russian positions and vehicles was released by Ukraine’s 79th Air Assault Brigade.

The footage began to spread in the early hours of Sunday, November 6.

Alongside the footage, the 79th Air Assault Brigade wrote: “UAV pilots of the 79th separate air assault brigade not only aim artillery at the enemy but also successfully destroy it themselves.

“For this purpose, they actively use drones with special devices. Thus, thanks to their precise and skilful actions, about 30 units of the Russian Armed Forces and up to 5 units of enemy armoured vehicles have been destroyed recently.”

“Every enemy soldier must understand that for coming to our land, death will be waiting for him everywhere,” the unit’s commander said on Facebook.

Popular Twitter account OSINTtechnical shared the footage, which has already amassed 1,3k likes.

People commented on the video.

“A commercial drone, athletic tape, a 3D-printed tail & a 40mm grenade. Taking out tanks,” wrote another popular account, @vcdgf555.

Another person wrote: “Those drones throwing old Soviet grenades at Russian tanks is really 👌”

While another person said: “The accuracy of these grenade drops is almost unbelievable.”

The footage comes after Ukraine’s 30th Mechanised Brigade released footage of them dropping VOG-17 and F1 grenades on Russian positions in the Bakhmut direction of Ukraine.
