"More on the "carpet-bomber" drones, as I like to call them that Taiwan is sending to #Ukraine (800 of them!).

Officially the "Revolver 860", can drop eight 60mm mortar bombs, by default."

...

The Revolver 860 weighs 42 kilograms (93 pounds) and can fly for 40 minutes up to 20 kilometers (12 miles) with a full payload, according to the manufacturer.

Although the drone’s weapons bay is designed to carry eight 60mm mortars, it can be customized for other munition


===========

As others have pointed out...if Taiwan has 800 (!!) of these things to donate to Ukraine...just how many of these does Taiwan have??!?!?!?!?

Anyone can tell what tank is at 0:11 0:12 and a bit further ahead?
It almost looks like an Armata, but I doubt it is. Someone with a better set of eyes?

The footage is I think several months old, outside of Kiev.

If you mean the one with the smoke pouring out the commander hatch I would say T72/T90



If there had been an Armata there, the world would have heard about it in a heartbeat

Thank you. It just didn't look like either a T-72 or T-90 to me, at least from this angle, but I believe you. It makes more sense.

Articles about other model this time SP-AT gun build on MT-LB chassis with shields for the crew. In this case that isn't SP-Gun but tank hunter vehicle.

Two interesting findings
Usage of 57mm S-60 AA guns on truck vehicles as improvised Gepard like. They are use to protect against aerial threats, drones like Orlan or Cartographer, Helicopters. Against ground vehicles usually light armoured so very usefully vehicles even is that only KRAZ truck with gun.

And here Photos and list of western manufactured vehicles used in last counteroffensive with original photos from front-line.

What I found interesting in that link was the use of the white cross for identifying Ukrainian vehicles.

This is the first time I have noticed that being used
