Ukrainian airborne troops destroyed a Russian BRDM-2 with nighttime FPV drones.

The video was published by the Shadow unit.

The released footage shows the drone catching up with a Russian reconnaissance armored vehicle with troops on its armor.

After hitting a cluster of Russian soldiers, the BRDM-2 continued to move, but was finished off by other FPV drones.

As a result of the attack, the enemy combat vehicle was completely destroyed.

It can be seen that the front wheels of the combat vehicle were covered with handmade ‘skirts’, and additional elements cover the sides of the vehicle.

In addition, the Russian BRDM-2 was not covered by anti-drone “grills,” which is not typical for a modern battlefield.

Despite the large number of BRDM-2s in the Russian Armed Forces, few of these combat vehicles were destroyed during the full-scale Russian-Ukrainian war.

In total, according to the OSINT resource Oryx, the Russians have lost about 12 combat vehicles of this type in various modifications, but it should be noted that not all cases have been recorded.

Militarnyi previously reported that one BRDM-2 was destroyed during a HIMARS strike on a Russian troop position in the southern sector.

According to The Military Balance, as of 2021, the Russian army had about 1,000 BRDM-2/BRDM-2A vehicles in service and up to 1,000 more BRDM-2s in storage.

It is also known that, in addition to the standard BRDM-2MS, the Russians use an upgraded version.
