The Ukrainian Joint Forces have shot down a Russian-made Orlan-10 unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) in Donbas, eastern Ukraine.
"At about 09:49 on November 19, an enemy unmanned aerial vehicle, most probably the Orlan-10 type, was spotted by radio electronic means. The drone was collecting intelligence information along the Bakhmut-Kostiantynivka-Ocheretyne route," the press center of Ukraine's Joint Forces Operation (JFO) wrote on Facebook on November 20.
After the target was confirmed by air-defense radars, it was destroyed by the air defense unit of the JFO Air Force at about 12:20.
"Judging by its wreckage and the parachute with an ID number label, it is a Russian-made Orlan-10 UAV," the press center said.
