Drones, Delta, And Elon Musk’s Starlink Help Ukraine Military Fight Off Russian Army
Despite power outages, the advanced satellite system, Starlink keeps the Ukrainian military connected and allows its drone units to target Russian troops, tanks, and supply vehicles.
The Ukrainian drone unit Aerorozvidka (Aerial Reconnaissance), which prefers to strike at night “when Russians sleep,” has been very effective with their drones to monitor Russian troop movements and drop explosives on their military vehicles.
As more cities and villages are being destroyed by the Russians, and communication suffers, the Starlink satellite system has become increasingly important to connect the drone units and other parts of the Ukrainian military.
