A crucial parts manufacturing plant for missiles in Russia has been destroyed in a devastating fire caused by kamikaze drones, RadarOnline.com has learned.

The Kremniy EL plant, located in the city of Bryansk, went up in flames after being targeted in a second drone attack within days. The plant is known for producing microchips used in Vladimir Putin's Iskander ballistic missiles, which have been used in conflicts, most notably in Ukraine. It also manufactures key hi-tech components for various other weapons.

Moscow has been quick to blame Kyiv for the strike.

Reports indicate that two kamikaze drones were aimed at Bryansk, the capital of a Russian region bordering Ukraine.

While one of the drones was successfully intercepted using electronic jamming technology, the other managed to hit the Kremniy EL plant, resulting in a catastrophic explosion.

The ensuing fire was so intense that it required more than 40 firefighters to bring it under control. No casualties were reported from the incident.

This is not the first time kamikaze drones have caused sizable damage in Russia. Just a day before the incident in Bryansk, a similar attack targeted Putin's war command headquarters in Rostov-on-Don.

The drones triggered a massive explosion, resulting in a large fire near the military HQ, a location that Putin has reportedly visited multiple times during the course of the war.

Earlier in the same week, a drone was downed in close proximity to Putin's secret hunting palace, further highlighting the growing impact of the conflict on Russia's doorstep.
