On November 12 and 13, Russian sources shared several videos documenting recent strikes with Lancet loitering munitions on equipment of the Armed Forces of Ukraine (AFU).
The Russian strikes hit two Soviet-made T-72 battle tanks, two BMP-2 infantry fighting vehicles, a BRDM-2 amphibious armoured scout car and an Israeli-made Gaia Amir MRAP [mine-resistant ambush-protected] vehicle that appeared with the AFU only very recently.
Many of the strikes took place on Kherson front, where Lancet loitering munitions were heavily used to target AFU troops that advanced after the recent Russian withdrawal.
The Lancet loitering munition was developed by the ZALA Aero Group, a subsidiary of Russia’s defense giant Kalashnikov Concern.
The company produces two versions of the loitering munition, the Izdeliye-51 and Izdeliye-52, both of which are equipped with an elector-optical system that allows them to detect, track and lock on static and moving targets.
The Izdeliye-52 is the base version of the Lancet, while the Izdeliye-51 is an improved version that features a more aerodynamic design with extended X-shaped wings. This version has an endurance of an hour and is armed with a warhead weighting five kilograms.
The Lancet is very difficult to intercept due to its small radar cross-section, minimal infrared signature and low-flying profile.
The Russian military has been using the Lancet and several other types of loitering munitions against the AFU since the beginning of the special operation in Ukraine. These systems inflicted heavy human and material losses on Kiev forces in the last few weeks.

Lancet is a killer. Russia is now planning and introducing a 5 years plan like in WW2 in order to speed up the production.
‘member when the Switchblade was going to light up the Russians and the last of the Moskals would be driven from Donbas and then Crimea would gladly join the most corrupt and impoverished country in Europe

Por qué no bloquean a este mierda?
Can admins ban this nafo troll instead to erase any pro-Russian comment pleasee?
Jake told the Clown that Crimea is gone forever and he should cope.
They are too busy banning me and others who complain about it. Maybe SF likes it that way, with the comment section and our RAM destroyed.
Este tipo es un retrasado
Ffs South Front ban these spammers
Also can you sort out why the videos do not appear just big chunks of blank white space
This is cope, Ukraine will collapse soon because the U.S will be forced to commit resources to Taiwan at the expense of Ukraine.
The U.S can afford to lose Ukraine, it is nothing more than a vanity project, however the U.S will be seriously compromised without Taiwan and China knows it.
The clock is ticking on the collapse of the U.S and especially support for Ukraine, and when that happens Ukraine is going to be an isolated and unwanted burden by the EU and all people in the west of Ukraine will know it.
US had Zelensky change Ukrainian law to allow foreign land ownership. Then American commodity brokers rigged the markets to lower prices to below production costs. That allowed a handful of big US agro corps to swoop in and buy 25% of Ukrainian farmland extra cheap. Traditionally, US and British militaries were at the disposal of oil companies, and I doubt that the agro corps hold as much sway, but if their farmland ownership in Ukraine was not honoured by whatever replacement government emerges, then they are shut out of their investments. That would be encouragement to not give up on Ukraine. Also, Pentagon still wants their missile silos near Moscow and naval base in Crimea.
Ukraine is done. US aid or no US aid.
it has problems with driving vehicles
Watching the juice “mine-resistant, ambush-proteced” (sic) burrito get fried is my favorite.
More drones for Palestine pleeZ! Z
What kind of an engine does the Lancet have?
Russia should scale up and mordenize it current munitions and military production plants …….. it’s in for a very long war of attrition where stocks count. I love Z!
