DJI Mavic 3.

This is coolbert:

USA 40 mm grenade high-explosive dual-purpose [HEDP] in use Ukraine. Carried aloft by modified commercial drone and dropped on targets. Small-sized shaped-charged weapon in certain circumstance able to destroy a lightly armored vehicle if used in the top attack mode.

"US-Made 40mm Grenades Rigged To DJI Mavic 3 Drone In Ukraine"

From the story by Will Killmore July 30, 2022.

"A short but interesting [8 second] video clip shows how Ukrainian troops are rigging munitions to consumer drones to be dropped on Russian targets. Of further interest is the choice of munition, which in this case are US-made 40mm projectile grenades, designed for MK19 and similar automatic grenade launchers. Both the DJI mavic 3 drone and projectile grenades need modifications to make this setup work, but necessity is the mother of invention."


Go see this additional video courtesy HEDP as dropped apparently from a DJI mavic drone.

Tank as with reactive armor not hit. I doubt a hit from the 40 mm HEDP round would have damaged the tank. That HEDP round will destroy or badly damage a soft-skinned vehicle and can DAMAGE and possibly DESTROY a Soviet/Russian lightly-armored vehicle of the BMP/BMD/BRDM/BTR category!
