Armed Forces of Ukraine name Iranian kamikaze drones’ weak spot

The functioning of Iranian-made kamikaze drones directly depends on weather conditions and can be disrupted in cold weather.

Natalia Humeniuk, Head of the Joint Coordination Press Center of the Southern Defense Forces, said this during the nationwide telethon.

According to her, there is a pause in the use of Iranian-made drones as the Russians tried to adjust them to the weather conditions.

"These drones were tested in somewhat different climatic conditions of Iran. Our climate is different and, among other things, they were most concerned about aerodynamics, the possibility of icing in case of temperature changes, which could affect flight ability," Humeniuk said.
