The boats were probably destroyed in the attack. A Bayraktar TB2 combat drone had attacked the two boats from the air. The drone is an export hit from Turkey, a company from Upper Austria – the eXXpress reported – supplies the motors for these flying weapon stations. The drones may also have played a decisive role in the attack on the guided missile cruiser “Moskva”.
With a wingspan of 12 meters and a fuselage length of 6.5 meters, the TB2 drone is certainly no child’s toy and it can be armed with 150 kilograms. She deals massive damage to her targets. Since it does not require a runway, it can be used in almost any terrain. In addition, the aircraft can remain in the air for a full 24 hours. Drones that are available from us, on the other hand, only manage a few minutes.
While Kyiv confirmed the destruction of the two Russian patrol boats, Russia continued the attack in eastern Ukraine. However, the aggressor continues to record heavy losses. A quarter of the 120 battalions are said to be disabled.
