Good practice. All militaries need to start accounting for UAVs – they’re never going away. Video of a Pantsir’s 30mm autocannons and their 1 kg bullets shredding a DJI Phantom from 100m. A bit of overkill, but what the hell… https://youtu.be/azF_NfNx0yw

This is good news for the SAA… now the Sultan of Turkey cannot complain when the Syrian Army reconquers Idlib.
