“Baba Yaga”: “Vampire” Drones Become a Nightmare for Russian Armed Forces

Skillfully used in night operations, incredibly fast, and operating covertly – the “Vampire” drones from Ukraine are turning into a real nightmare for the Russian military. This is reported by the German news website Münchner Merkur.

The troops have even given these unmanned aerial vehicles their own nickname: “Baba Yaga,” inspired by a dark witch from Slavic folklore. According to Ukrainian reports, these “Vampire” drones enable extremely precise targeting of Russian tanks and facilities during the darkness, attacking them with their impressive explosive power.

On Tuesday, November 28, the Ukrainian Ministry of Defense released a video on the state-operated crowdfunding platform United24 about these “Vampire” drones, which were referred to as the “nightmare of the Russians.” According to a report by the renowned US news website Business Insider, the “Vampire” drones have the impressive ability to carry loads of up to 15 kilograms and reach a top speed of 120 kilometers per hour. Their range extends to about 10 kilometers. The production of these “Vampire” drones is carried out in Ukraine.
