Forbes: Ukraine Could Hit Plant In Tatarstan With Light Aircraft

It was made unmanned and stuffed with explosives.

Ukraine may have used a light aircraft of Cessna type to strike the Russian factory in Yelabuga (Tatarstan), which produces "shaheds". It could have been equipped with remote controls and explosives, Forbes wrote on Wednesday, April 3.

It is noted that Cessna 172 aircraft can fly a distance of about 1,000 kilometres and carry a cargo weighing 500 kg. The destruction, which spread to the complex and the neighbouring workers' dormitory, suggests the large size of the aircraft's explosive load, the publication points out.

"Besides being cheap, simple and reliable, a drone on the basis of a light aircraft also has the advantage of stealth. However, it is not due to high-tech moulds and coatings, but to its innocuousness," the magazine writes.
