The strike on the UAV was executed utilizing the Swedish portable anti-aircraft missile system RBS 70, manufactured by Saab.
Russian troops have been utilizing the SuperCam drone for aerial imaging, intending to create highly detailed digital maps and conduct remote aerial monitoring of territories and objects.
