Russians recently shot down one of the 1,400-pound drones.

As the war in Ukraine enters its sixth week, Ukraine’s Bayraktar TB-2 drones still are in action.

We know that because the Russians recently shot down one of the 1,400-pound drones and also recovered relatively intact guided missiles either from the wreckage of that downed TB-2 or another drone Ukraine has lost.

At the same time, someone in the Ukrainian government or military has leaked a new video from a TB-2 strike on an apparent Russian convoy.

We can’t confirm the dates for the shoot-down, the missile recovery, or the drone strike, but together they seem to tell a story: that despite Russia’s claims that it has shot down more TB-2s than Ukraine has admitted to acquiring, the Turkish-made, propeller-driven robot still is part of the fight.
