According to The Sun, the recent events unfolded in the Mykolaiv region of Ukraine where the dramatic footage captured several intense sea-air battles targeting Russian positions.

The Ukrainian marine drones – known as Sea Baby drones – reportedly underwent significant modifications to enhance their firepower.

United24, an organization supporting the development of these drones, further confirmed the successful testing of the new rocket launcher-equipped drones against Russian positions at the Kinburn Spit area.

The use of the new killer drones by Ukraine marked a strategic shift for the war-torn nation – particularly after the country had previously faced vulnerabilities in its sea drone fleet.

The Ukrainian marine drones – known as Sea Baby drones – reportedly underwent significant modifications to enhance their firepower.

The recent actions also reportedly came on the heels of earlier footage that showed Ukrainian boat drones firing “Archer” missiles in the Black Sea – another significant move that prompted Russian countermeasures to protect key infrastructure.

Russia, which has reportedly relied on helicopters to combat the threat posed by the Ukrainian drones, faced challenges as the drones successfully evaded detection and swiftly approached their targets.

Ukraine's use of the kamikaze sea drones also reportedly raised concerns in Moscow – particularly regarding the security of strategic assets like the Crimean Bridge and the Saki military airfield.

The deployment of the new killer drones represented Ukraine's technological advancement in unmanned warfare since the war with Russia first kicked off in February 2022.

Hunter highlighted the strategic importance of such drones in targeting key Russian assets and suggested that Ukraine’s new killer drones signaled a new phase in the conflict between the two warring nations.

"At the start of the full-scale invasion, control over the Black Sea gave Russia significant advantages, including a fire control over the Ukrainian coast and the ability to blockade our trade routes,” the SBU general explained.
