    I’m so damn happy to support the people trying to keep those explosives out of the ground, where they’d lay for dozens of years waiting to maim future generations.

    I couldn’t think of a better use for them than to blow up the people bringing them in.

    Fuck the front line of Russia and anyone who supports it.

    Quick, hide from the angry explosive drone in a building filled to the brim with additional explosives.

    This feels more like a wile-e-coyote action than anything. You can just imagining them realizing and holding up a little help sign.

      Would have been more logical for them all to scatter in separate directions as the drone can only target one of them in that circumstance

      They’ve already messed up by being there in the first place. They’re in an open field in a war where explody flying drones are common, only one structure to present to provide cover, and that structure doesn’t appear to have been reinforced (No covers over the doors, or windows, amd the roof blown to bits already), they have no backup no reinforcements and as far as I can tell also new vehicles.

      Who they even fighting anyway, there clearly isn’t anyone around. They are just hanging around in a field waiting to get bombed.

        Haha… that is war.

        You go where they send you and there you wait… And wait… And wait. Sometimes some high up officer decides now its time to do X and you do X…

        One of theany reasons militaries have issues with alcohol and drug use… it’s to combat either the stress of constant fighting… but mostly to combat the boredom.

          Yes I know it’s not really their choice to be there, but their commanding officers have sent them to a dumb place. All they are really ever going to do at that location is either get killed or nothing.

          Having lots of small spread out units makes sense in a World War II style conflict. But not in a modern one with drones. Russia’s military commanders just seem to be stuck in that mindset.
