The Starlink technology proivided by Musk to Ukraine is giving Ukraine drones the advantage and helping them use the satellite information and technology to destroy Russian drones and tanks.
The Daily Mail Reports: “Aerorozvidka (Aerial Reconnaissance) is being used to attack Russian drones and target Vladmir Putin’s army of tanks and track down their positions in the conflict, which has been ongoing since February 24. Drones used in the field are able to use the newly available Starlink to keep connected and provide intelligence as internet and power outages plague Ukraine. With the technology, the drones can be directed to drop anti-tank munitions to help ward off the Russian attack.”
Musk had previously announced that the Starlink technology was live in Ukraine, making good on a promise to officials who asked Musk for help.
