Video footage from the war in Ukraine shows the moment Ukrainian Special Forces conducted a strike on a Russian tank with a US supplied Switchblade kamikaze drone.
According to Ukrainian media the Russian soldiers on top of the tank got hit by the strike while drinking alcohol.
While not confirmed the possibility of the striking drone being a US made Switchblade is likely.
The Switchblade is a miniature loitering munition, designed by AeroVironment.
It is used by several branches of the United States military.
Due to its size the Switchblade is small enough to fit in a backpack.
After being launched from a tube the Switchblade flies to the target area, and crashes into its target while detonating its explosive warhead.
The name switchblade comes from the way the spring-loaded wings are folded up inside a tube and flip out once released.
