NSFW    SKYBYN, UKRAINE — Drone videos are giving the world a horrifying yet fascinating look at the tactics used by both sides of the war in Ukraine.


A new video shows a very brave Ukrainian infantry team ambushing an entire column of Russian tanks and APCs with modern anti-tank missiles –- and that from an incredibly close distance of only 30 meters.


A recent drone video posted by Warleaks shows a Russian armored convoy being ambushed on the E-95 highway just north of Skybyn in Ukraine.


It is clear from the footage that a Ukrainian infantry team had constructed a concealed firing position that managed to keep them hidden from Russian tanks passing only 30 meters away.


Without warning, the Ukrainian team fired multiple anti-tank missiles at the closest Russian vehicles.


An N-LAW missile can be seen streaking over one tank, detonating above it. The explosion then punched through the tank’s thin roof armor and started a fire in the tank.


Within seconds the tank’s crew can be seen exiting the tank and running in all directions. Behind the burning tank, Russian infantry exited their APCs, also running for cover while the ambush team sprayed automatic fire at them from close range.


The APCs then took evasive action to escape from the kill zone. Behind them, two Russian tanks fired toward the main ambush position, hitting the area with high explosives, before another anti-tank rocket hit one of the tanks, seemingly with little effect.


At the end of the video, the tank that was first hit by the first N-LAW missile can be seen rolling down the road, while a Russian APC maneuvers behind it. The tank is clearly cooking off, as the explosives inside it are starting to burn.


The footage is a reminder of the sudden ferocity of war, as well as the brutal cruelty of a successful ambush followed by a successful counter ambush.
