Zelensky Ordered the Troops to Die

The “fire-and-forget” guidance system is definitely cool – no one could disagree with that.

But the amount of airspace needed for a missile of a size that is capable of taking out a tank to get off the ground and begin the homing process makes it obviously impossible to use anywhere other than an open area. I have no idea why the US military would even tell the Ukrainians to use these in urban environments.

Frankly, they would be better off using old-fashioned RPGs.
