      Yes, everything can be. Remember how Israelis are here, etc. UAVs were advertised when Azerbaijan popped up against Armenia .. Like, here it is a tactic ...
      And now these UAVs in Ukraine are cracking like nuts every day and they do not affect the course of Russia's hostilities mainly ...

        It’s a pity that he didn’t reach the base, but there he would have fallen to the control center, or he would have dived on his brother.

    So maybe this airbase should be "accidentally" incinerated?

    Two tourists are sitting on a hill near the town of Kympia-Turziy, admiring the beauties. One, seeing the Reaper flying in the sky, asks the other:
    - Listen, P., will that drone fly to the base?
    - This? This one will fly, - the second confidently answers him.
    - And if so? - clicking the toggle switch on the remote control, B. is interested.
    - So? It will still fly.
    - And if like this: click-click-click. Will it fly?
    - Well, if so, then now it will definitely fly, but it would be better if it didn’t fly ... What, did it click?! Get out of here quickly!
